Windows 7: Link Outlook with Live

Link Outlook with Live

Hi everyone.

I know there have been several topics regarding linking Outlook with Live in some way.
I've searched throughout the forum, but I don't believe I've found what I was quite looking for.

Is there a way to link/sync the calendar and contacts that I have through outlook (my school account, to be more specific), so they'll appear in my Live page online?

So as I had it, I used Outlook to establish my calendar and all my contacts.
I have my Live account in Outlook as well, but that creates a separate page for Live contacts, and creates new calendars.

With contacts, I know I can copy and paste from my school account to my Live account within Outlook, and all changes will appear on the Live homepage as well.

And as far as calendars, my Live calendar is blank.

I've tried googling as well, but all results seem to be from 2008 (I have Office 2010, so I'm unsure if it applies). I've downloaded the Outlook Connector to have my Life account in Outlook, but it remains independent.

So is there a way I can configure some settings so that any change I make to my Outlook calendar and contacts will take effect with my Live data, without having to constantly copy and paste, and so that everything will also appear should I log into Live via browser?

I don't believe this is quite what I'm looking for.

I have Outlook 2010, and use that for all my mail.

I don't actually have the Windows Live Mail program installed, but I have my Live account within Outlook. So within the Outlook program, I have my calendar with everything under my main Outlook account.

Having my Live account within Outlook adds three calendars (My Name, Birthdays, and Holidays). I want to be able to just have everything in my school calendar be copied into my Live calendar (which is currently blank), and when I make adjustments to the Outlook calendar, they'll automatically change in my Live calendar as well.

The same goes for the two different contact pages I have within Outlook (both Outlook and Live)

I've read the article you linked, and I may just be completely missing it, but I don't think I see the thing I'm looking for.

But thank you for your help so far :)
