Using outlook 2011 on my mbp. Have exchange mail and iCloud mail going.

I have an Exchange directory for business addresses and have my iCloud set up for friends (do not want to integrate friends and biz into one directory)

On the Mac Mail for the book, iPad and iPhone this all comes together flawlessly searching both directories when addressing mail as the mac apps can point to the exchange directory and iCloud directory.

The rub comes when I use Outlook 2011 - I can not figure out how to add the iCloud directory - perhaps as an LDAP source?

Can anyone help please. I simply need the functionality of Outlook 2011 that is not there in the mac apps at work and would like to keep all my mail in 1 place.

Maybe I'm missing a tweak on the iCloud account setup? Searching has not helped.

Thanks.
Bob

I don't use iCloud, but Outlook 2011 uses sync services to connect to the address book contacts on your Mac. Go to Outlook>Prefs>Sync.

Thanks - syncing is not what I want to do - if I bring in all of the addresses there - I will have double on my iPhone/ipad because I look at both places.

Thanks for the response...

Anybody figure out a way to either sync contacts or add the iCloud contacts into Outlook 2011 as an LDAP one.
