    Default Getting Outlook contacts without sync-ing

    Hello all, I hope someone may know of a solution for me. I have a Droid maxx which I use for personal and business use. I have been able to use separate apps to view my personal (gmail) email and work email from Outlook, however, I have not been able to find a way to view my Outlook contacts and calendar on the phone without syncing my phone to outlook. I do not want to have my business contacts comingled with my personal contacts, so is there an app I can use to simply view my outlook contacts and calendar with out a sync to my phone?

    Thanks

    Default Re: Getting Outlook contacts without sync-ing

    Viewing something on the phone normally requires that it be on the phone. Making something that's on another computer be on your phone is called syncing. So your question is "can I see on my phone something that's not on my phone?" And the answer is obviously no.

    The "back door" to this is that Outlook (which probably means that the server is Exchange Server) usually has a web interface. Find the address of yours, and use a browser in your phone to look at your emails. Then they're only "on your phone" until you redirect the browser to another site or close it.
