    Sync iCloud Contacts with Outlook WITHOUT Mail


    I'm aware of the iCloud app for Windows that will add iCloud mail, contacts, etc. to Outlook, but that's not what I'm wanting.

    I would like to sync my contacts with Outlook, but not have my iCloud mail show in Outlook.

    Does anyone know of a way to do this or an app that would do it?

    Thanks!

    My outlook is synced for calendar and contacts only, in the Windows iCloud setting, select your preferences.

    I'll check again. Does it place iCloud contacts into Outlook?

    Yes, you will have an additional set of contacts, you just have to configure outlook to use them by default.

    FYI, Windows Mail supports iCloud mail, contacts and calendar syncing. It's what I use now.

    Am I missing something? I don't see an option to just sync contacts.
