    I have seen a few posts on here about problems syncing Outlook with MobileMe (which is a problem I am having) - and also a few posts that have said MobileMe cannot sync with Outlook if your outlook is already synced with an Exchange server.

    Can anyone verify this is actually true?

    I have a Windows PC at work, when I try and setup, it asks me to sign in. I then get the message "Unable to connect to MobileMe. Please try again later".

    What's up, is this an issue with MM being down/flaky or something else?

    It could be a problem with either your office Firewall or Proxy Server if one is used.

    Yep, Proxy Issue!

    I really wanted this for Calendars.

    We shouldn't have to do it this way, but here's a pretty clean work around for Contact and Calendar info.

    Plaxo.com

    I have both my Mac and Windows PC syncing with it - and my Mac syncing my iPhone over MM.

    Works perfect. But We Still Shouldn't Have To Do It This Way!!

    MobileMe: Synchronizing with Microsoft Exchange
    Last Modified: July 23, 2008
    Article: HT2483
    Summary
    MobileMe works with the native applications you already use on your iPhone and iPod touch (Mail, Contacts, and Calendar), on your Mac (Mail, Address Book, and iCal), and on your PC (Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, and Windows Contacts). While MobileMe does not sync with Microsoft Exchange, you can have both sync with your iPhone or iPod touch.
