thanks mike. couiple questions
1. even after i set up icloud the attendees still were not carrying over. WIll companionlink sync them?
2. I cant invite attendees from my iphone. Do i need to turn on icloud to do this? And does that then create a separate calender from my outlook calendar for events i create on iphone?
3. Is companion link a desktop product or does it store my data in the cloud? Do sync wirelessly or thru the cord?
4. should i use companion link for all my outlook data syncing? ie. tasks, calendar, contacts, notes? So i dont need itunes to sync?

Suppose i want to stick with desktop outlook - can i use companion link for this? So install companion link on my desktop and phone and sync with cord? does anything get stored in cloud? im assuming not because i dont think companion link has a cloud.
Re: office cloud 365, at some point i need to move to a cloud solution. I've been an outlook user for 15 years probably and have gigabytes of archived files. As a matter for fact, the reason i dread getting a new computer is because transferring my outlook data is a pain (and quicken too:)). I wouldnt mind getting your insight on a cloud solution. But i realize its a new question. Can i pay more for this question or resubmit? I guess my questions would be if im going to the cloud, why go with office vs google. I assume i should if i want to continue to use MS office products. But then do i literally work from a web portal to access my outlook? Is anything stored locally? What if interent is down? And can/how do i transfer my current and archive data to office cloud
michael, i did some more research and it turns out if i were to use companion link i would have to install their dejaoffice application on my iphone. I didnt want to use a third party contact and calendar app, i rather just use the iphone calendar and contact program. I ended up using google calendar. I already have a gmail account and calendar which i rarely use. But i found an app called gSyncit which is an add-on to my outlook (and free if you sync calendar only which is what i want). It syncs my outlook calendar to my gmail calendar which syncs with my iphone. A bit convoluted, but in practice it's super simple and actually syncs everything accurately (if you recall, my initial problem was that icloud would not sync attendees with outlook and certain people could not accept my iphone calendar invites). ANyway, all seems to be working now.
