Make sure you have deleted all the calendar events from Outlook and it should work.

However I would recommend using Google Cal over anything else simply because it is easier to setup in many respects.

I did try checking that box, but it still tried to automatically sync. Not sure why.

I am going to be looking into multiple alternative sync options, including Google.
Strange, no matter what there will always be a sync in progress screen on your iPhone for a second or two when you first plug it into iTunes; I don't know why but there is, it doesn't do anything.

If it does come up just cancel it on the iPhone.

I think Google Cal is the way to go but Yahoo Cal and Mobile Me are all good.

I know that the Sync in Progress screen does come up for a second anyway, but according to iTunes it was trying to perform a full sync (starting syncing contacts).

And I think canceling on the iPhone is how we finally got around it.

MobileMe would be the best choice because of the native support, but it's too expensive. Google and Yahoo are both options I'll be looking at.

I have had an interesting problem with syncing IOS 4 with Microsoft Outlook.

It concerns Birthdays. As you may know when you set up a contact in Outlook, you have the option to enter a Birthday in the Contact/Details section. This will enable "John Doe's Birthday" to appear on the relevant day of the calendar every year as a reminder.

When the iPhone is synced with Outlook, these entries appear on the iPhone calendar.

I cannot recall any problems with this procedure until IOS 4.

Now, any Birthdays prior to 1933 are NOT transferred from the Outlook calendar to the iPhone one.

I have confirmed this using the following combinations:

a) Windows 7 Home Edition / iTunes 9.2.0.16 / Outlook 2010 / IOS 4
b) Windows 7 Ultimate / iTunes 9.2.0.16 / Outlook 2010 / IOS 4
c) Windows XP Pro SP3 / iTunes 9.2.0.16 / Outlook 2007 / IOS 4

I would appreciate if someone else would confirm they have the same problem. I have reported the problem to Apple, and as I am the only one to have reported it, they are implying it is MY problem!!!

iOS 4 gives the iPhone its own birthdays calendar. I don't know why, but that's probably what is causing your issue. There is probably a conflict of some kind. Unfortunately, I can't really experiment with it right now, maybe someone else can.
