I've searched all over for information on how to do this but to no avail. I prefer to stay with Outlook so I can sync my iPhone to it as well.
Would greatly appreciate any suggestions - thanks!!!

yeah i had a look at this for myself and see that you need a gmail account to be able to sync with outlook - i don't have a gmail account so i thought it is a bit "if'yyyy" so i didn't bother to venture further down that track...
Take a look at the Calendar settings, here you'll see an option to sync with "WINDOWS Calendar" check mark - (What ever that maybe, I suspect its a google app) but i believe you need a google mail account to get it to work because simply checking it doesn't sync up with my outlook i currently use...

Thanks but I'm not quite clear on what you mean (and I do have gmail accounts). Do you mean I have to use google calendar as an intermediary? In other words, do I have Outlook '07 synch to Google Calendar and then, have Google Calendar synch to Windows Calendar which in turn will synch to TouchSmart's Calendar?
Thanks for your patience with my ignorance!

i just had another quick look and see that windows calendar comes with vista, so if you have check marked in touchsmart calendar settings to sync with wondows calendar then they should be in sync - whihc i have tried and see that it takes several seconds before they sync (Touchsmart Calendar and Windows Calendar). Now from what I can tell there is no direct path to sync windows calendar with outlook calendar unless there is some sort of connecotr available to do so.
i did a quick search and don't see any where where you can find such a connector - however there seems to be windows calendar connector's available for google calendar - so i'm not sure if there is a google calendar to outlook calendar connector - but it might be the only way to do it for now until a connector for windows and outlook is made available.
btw, good luck with it and let us know how it goes if you know of a google to outlook connector
