« Starting Off the New Year with a Bang | Main | Spanning Sync v1.2 Beta Available for Testing »



Thank you thank you thank you thank you for this. I have spent the better part of this weekend trying to get my iPhone to sync up with my Entourage 2008 calendar to no avail. It just STOPPED bringing the info over! VERY frustrating.

Finally! I found your comment post over at the MacKB.com discussion and tried these steps you've mentioned here. :) It took two hours for my Entourage to repopulate calendar items into iCal and then be available for selecting in my iTunes to sync, but once it all showed up, I hit SYNC and it was good as new. :)

Thank you for sharing your experience so that I could get a bit of my sanity back before the weekend is over.
