Outlook 2016 and Outlook.com

I finally got Microsoft support to get my calendar and contacts to sync with my iphone and outlook 2016.

It was a 3 hour process and I still do not think it is correct.

I have an alias for my comcast.net email at outlook.com. The syncing is through that crazy outlook email address. It also brings in my mail from comcast. The problem is that it takes over 1/2 hour to receive my emails.

I previously had my pop account from comcast set up so I could get my emails in a more timely manner.

My question is can I turn off the email portion of the outlook.com and still have the syncing of calendar and contacts. This is far too confusing for me.

The process to get this back to the way it was is just mind boggling.

Yes, you can remove the connected account in options and add it to outlook as a pop account (or imap). Outlook.com pulls in connected account every 30 min (if not longer) - so its really not a good solution for a lot of people.
Remove connected account: Outlook.com - Microsoft free personal email


to get rid of the crazy address (i call it outlook_ugly@), you need to set the outlook.com add as Primary for the microsoft account and in outlook on the web (on the same page as the connected account settings).
Set primary: Sign in to your Microsoft account
