Note: You can't use the CalDAV Synchronizer in combination with Mobile Sync (Exchange ActiveSync), on the same email account.
Mobile Sync already syncs your primary calendar automatically. If you want to synchronize more than one calendar, we recommend setting up your account with IMAP in combination with CalDAV Synchronizer.
Step 1 - Download and install extension
To sync your Webmail calendar in Outlook you need to download and install the extension Outlook CalDav Synchronizer.
After you have installed it on your computer, you need to restart Outlook. The extension will then be visible in Outlook as a tab in the blue ribbon at the top.
Note: Both Outlook and the CalDav Synchronizer extension are third party products. This means that Empire Hosting has no control over any changes or updates, that may cause it to stop functioning.
Step 2 - Open cPanel and copy the CalDAV url
To set up your calendar, you need the CalDAV url of your calendar.
- Log in to cPanel and go to Calendars and Contacts.
- There you will find the CalDav Url.
