Syncing Telstra bigpond calendar with MS Outlook 365 Windows 10

Hi

I am trying to get my Telstra mail calendar to sync with my Outlook 365 calendar on my windows 10 PC (bigpond.net.au Telstra account). I do not want to use another email address such as outlook.com.au. I have seen some comments going back 4 years or so but they are more work-arounds, not fixes. Is there a secure way to do this within Outlook 365? This is a personal set-up i.e. not Exchange. Note emails etc work fine.

Thanks

How do you currently access your “Telstra mail calendar”?.

 

Do you have an iPhone?.

Yes - that works fine, but I need my PC synced up as well.

I did ask you How do you currently access your “Telstra mail calendar”?.

- this is to try understand what you mean by Telstra mail calendar.

 

So please read and answer each question.

 

See, I am not sure if you mean the calendar that you see using the Calendar app on the iPhone (or something else).

- if that's the case, then assuming that you connect your iPhone to Apple iCloud, you can follow the instructions on the Microsoft page

 

Try that option first, because if you insist on using the calendar on the Telstra Mail server it's achievable, but convoluted.

Thanks. What I said was I want to use my outlook on PC calendar and have this integrated seamlessly with my bigpond email so I can properly send meeting requests and record responses... presumably therefore needing my outlook on PC calendar to sync with the calendar on Telstra mail...

Do you have an Apple iCloud account?.

 

If so, follow the instructions on the Microsoft page that I mentioned.

 

During the installation of the iCloud app on the computer you will have the option of which items to synchronise. You already have emails working so there’s no need to select it.

You need to use a CalDAV addin to be able to sync the Telstra Mail calendar with Outlook.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Thanks. I actually got one from Sourceforge and it’s installed - but I can’t work out the settings... it has an error message like “URL not properly formed” or similar. Any idea what the settings should be?

Thanks

The server should be https://calendar.telstra.com or just calendar.telstra.com depending on the plugin being used.

Did that server setting work?.

 

Which plugin did you download from Sourceforge?.
