    Default Two Profiles in Outlook
    Hi

    I would very much appreciate if someone could help me to syncronize my iPhone with Outlook...

    I have a PC and have created a second profile in outlook at home to syncronize my corporate outlook (calendar and addresses) via vpn. Everything works fine in that respect. I have all my private mails in my "private profile" and my corporate mails and addresses in the second, i.e. "corporate profile".

    Sofar I have synconized my iPhone / iTunes (i.e. addresses and calendar) with my "private profile". However, now I want iTunes / iPhone to syncronize with my new profile in Outlook, i.e. the corporate profile. Unfortuantelly I can't find the settings to change that? The private profile is a .pst file whereas the corporate profile is a .ost file. I know that iTunes can also synchronize with ost files and not only pst files. So this should not be the problem.

    Can anybody help? Is there a way to change the file where itunes is syncing the calendar and contacts with?

    Thanks,
    Peter

    hi peter,

    well let me tell you this, after breaking my head for 2 days over this problem (my boss has an iphone and i am responsible for its operation) and multiple searches on google i was left fruitless.
    i saw your post last, and decided that i am fed up, i would have to find out how to make 2 outlook profiles work on iphone on my own.

    note - you basically have to temporarily set a "default" profile so that itunes uses that to sync with iphone (itunes only syncs default profiles). after it syncs for the first time, you can change all the settings back and itunes will still use the profile it synced with (even if it is not default any longer).

    so here it is:
    1. close outlook and itunes, disconnect your phone
    2. open control panel
    3. open "mail"
    4. click on "show profiles" button
    5. select the profile you want Iphone to sync with (highlight it)
    note- since you have multiple profiles "prompt for profile to be used" checkbox is most likely selected.
    6. select "always use this profile" checkbox
    7. in the dropdown menu select the profile your want Iphone to sync with
    8. click ok

    9. open itunes (do NOT connect Iphone)
    10. go to "edit > preferences > sync tab (last tab on top)"
    11. then clear the sync history
    12. click ok
    13. NOW connect the Iphone and sync (you might get some messages that you need to verify the correct data for calendar and contacts)

    14. after a successful sinc, go back to control panel and in Mail options change the settings back to the way they were. (basically revert the settings in steps 1-8 above)

    You are done.
    Hope this helps you and anyone else.

    Excellent! Just got an iPhone 3GS today, and this was killing me. Minor note: on iTunes 8.2, the Reset Sync History is now on the "Devices" tab (second from last).

    Default Great tip but one question...
    Have I user this procedure (to change the default profile) every time I change the iPhone to be synchronized?

    How do you the same trick if you are sync'ing thru icloud? I followed all steps (including resetting sync history in iTunes) but am still unable to sync with the now default Outlook profile. Thanks, Russell Heath
