    I've followed the directions on the GoDaddy site for programming my Motorola Droid to sync with my Outlook Exchange server. I'm getting email but not seeing the calendar populate on the Droid. Anyone have a solution?

    On the Droid, there is a small issue with Exchange calendar sync. Try this.

    1. Delete your Exchange account on your Droid.
    2. Go into the corporate calendar application. The setup wizard should pop up.
    3. Setup your exchange account as normal.

    Setting up the account through the Corporate Calendar app seems to get around the glitch that doesn't allow the calendar to sync if you setup the account through the account setting or the Email application.

    Hope that helps.

    sync droid with outlook exchange calendar

    I'm not quite sure I follow these instructions. Syncing my email was relatively easy but can you walk me through a step by step to now sync the calendar? Much appreciation in advance.

    You need to delete your existing exchange account (Settings -> Accounts). The mail and calendar don't sync independently, so you need to totally reset it. Once you delete the account, open Corporate Calendar. A setup wizard should pop up and walk you through setting it up again. After that, your calendar and mail should both sync fine.

    Thanks, I did as you suggested and the mail syncs but the calendar is still not populated. As a temporary work around I bookmarked the url for exchange server access in my browser, of course it is not a direct sync but it does allow access. You have been very helpful and I am wondering if you can indulge me a bit more and hazard a guess at the issue or a possible fix.

    Calendar sync

    What I had to do -- and it worked great because I wanted this end result -- is I sync'd my Exchange calendar and my Google calendar through my @gmail.com account. Then I sync'd my Droid calendar with my Google calendar. Now I get all my appts on both calendars and my Droid.:icon_ banana:

    Or try the Touchdown app. Syncs mail, calendar, contacts, and tasks.

    I'd suggest looking into another Exchange client. Touchdown is certainly one popular option (and what I use) but there's also RoadSync, Moxier, etc.
