Is there any relationship between Outlook's contacts and Android's Messages contacts?

Iron Contributor

Last week there was an update to my Samsung S10. That update has lost a lot of my contacts in Messages, the SMS app. This is a real pain.


I had thought that there was some relationship between the Contacts in Outlook and what's on my phone. I have Office 365. So, I had thought that this couldn't happen. Now I'm wondering, is there no relationship at all between the Android Messages contacts and Outlook Contacts?

You can sync your contacts from the Outlook app to the native Android Contacts list.

In the Outlook app;
Settings-> tap on your Office 365 or account-> enable: Sync contacts

@Robert Sparnaaij I just discovered something I didn't see before on my phone. The Outlook app on my phone lost my Microsoft email account at!


WHY DID IT DO THAT????????????????


Clearly, that has a lot, perhaps everything to do with my losing my contacts in the Android Messages app.
