Unless things have changed, my recollection is that MS Outlook does not support CalDAV out of the box. Before doing anything else, you will need to find and install a CalDAV plug-in for Outlook. I do not know which one works best these days.

Once you have added CalDAV support, look here for some information that should help add the FastMail calendar: https://www.fastmail.com/help/techni....html#calendar

Question

Thanks. Maybe someone will have a suggestion for a plug-in.

I have tried the following Outlook CalDAV synchronizer and it seems to work for me so far:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/out...vsynchronizer/
  • Click Download and save the Zip file.
  • The installation instructions are at:
    https://sourceforge.net/p/outlookcal...zer/wiki/Home/
  • After installation, start Outlook. You should see "CalDav Synchronizer" at the top bar. Click this tool then double-click Synchronization Profiles.
  • I use:
    • Name: Fastmail Calendar
    • Outlook folder: Calendar
    • Check "Synchronize items immediately after change"
    • DAV URL: https://caldav.fastmail.com
    • Username: (your Fastmail email login address)
    • Password: Your app-specific password for Outlook. You cannot use your regular Fastmail password!
    • Email address: (your Fastmail email login address)
    • Click Test or discover settings. This checks the CalDAV connection.
    • Synchronization mode: Choose how you want to synchronize -- I'm using Outlook <-- Server (Replicate)
    • Synchronization interval (minutes): I'm using 30 minutes
  • This tool also works with CardDAV for synchronizing your Fastmail contacts with Outlook. Repeat the instructions above with these changes:

Crash

Everything seemed to work fine until I restarted Outlook. It say the app has a problem and won't let me enable the plug-in even after I reinstall it. I guess I would have to clean the registry. Very frustrating, I had high hopes. My system is Win 10 64 bits and Outlook 2019.

I'm using Windows 10 64-bit OS and have Outlook 32-bit installed. But I'm pretty sure this add-on was developed and tested for both 32-bit and 64-bit Outlook versions. My guess is that you need to update to the latest .NET framework or repair your current .NET framework. Try:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=30135

You can also try installing the latest .NET framework. Select Download .NET Framework Runtime at:
https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download

Outlook can be repaired using:

No problems with net. I am not running Office 365 so a little nervous with my standalone app.
