    Is this possible? The new beta imports the Windows Calendar data on
    installation but is there a way of maintaining syncronisation between then
    two?

    My phone syncs to Windows Calendar, which is useful - I'd like this to sync
    to Live Calendar too. If it's not possible currently, are there any plans to
    add this functionality?

    I doubt it.

    That's what Live Mail is for. Perhaps by the time Windows 7 is released
    there will be a stand-alone calendar for synchronization, but I was pretty
    sure bundled Windows applications such as Windows Vista Calendar never
    receive feature updates, only major bug fixes and security patches?

    Is that correct?

    Both of you are correct. WL Mail only imports data from Win Calendar on
    first-run, and doesn't continue to keep 2-way sync between the two
    applications.
    There is no plan to add this in the future.

    Hm, this sounds like a showstopper for me. How is this inteded to be used?
    Using two calendars forever?
    Using Live Calendar as a complete replacement for Windows Calendar should
    definitely a focus for LC. And as eg. phone sync software uses Windows
    Calenar, LC should be able to open local calendars r/w, not just import.

    Wov, how very helpful. Agree you intend to replace Windows Calendar with the
    Calendar in Live Mail, but till then, how the hell are we supposed to use
    them? Import and Export everytime between Windows Calendar and Online Windows
    Live Calendar?
