    I am getting confused what you are trying to achieve, Phone companion app is not a sync app, its an app for getting MS software on your device

    So for iOS/Android it gets you to install the Outlook app, similar to the one that is built into win phones

    you don't need 3rd party aps to sync Hotmail/android, Outlook app for iOS/Android does it and on win phones its built in, Outlook 2013 also has it built in

    I have just tried sending an email, the sent email appears on phone, outlook, outlook.com, windows mail app
    that was sending from google and also outlook account, all is in sync

    My bad, I've misunderstood the purpose of this app...

    With my Windows phone, desktop Outlook 2013, only the outlook.com accounts synced; others had been added manually, but they don't sync. You have link how to set the sync up for all accounts? TIA...

    When will the phone companion not crash upon launch?
    Crashes for me too (in 10162). A window appears, then it disappears before I can do anything.

    I had to connect my phone several times and launch the app several times to finally get it to work.
    Kind of a useless app though.
    I don't think I get that far?

    Sorry for late response, just seen your post

    my google account was added manually, settings I use are
    imap.gmail.com port 993
    smtp.gmail.com port 587
    I have these on both phone and outlook

    one thing I did see, not sure if this makes any difference as my accounts where added prior to this

    That will happen if you have some device showing on the Settings/Privacy/Other Devices as usable by the App, such as a Flash Drive connected to your system. Try turning off or disconnecting such devices.

    Microsoft knows about this and is working on a fix, if one is not already done.
