We set up our homestead emails through outlook but they are having sync issues and we are not able to see or share our calenders. What do we need to do to fix this?

Homestead no longer uses the OpenExchange mail client, and we are now using RoundCube. Unfortunately, due to the change in webmail clients, we are no longer connected to the exchange servers to allow the ability to share calendars in Roundcube, or Outlook. If you are needing to take advantage of this feature, you may want to look into Google Apps, or possibly Outlook 365.

You can use Outlook 2016 to check your mail and keep a calendar, but you are not able to share the contacts and calendars among several users.

ok, then I need some help please setting up my homestead email in Outlook 2016.  This is the information I used to set it up last time.  Do I use something different?

These are instructions for Outlook 2013, but should be very similar. Our settings are the same. If you get stuck, let me know where, and exactly what is happening.

I just bought the new Office 365 that came with outlook.  So how can I make it work? Any suggestions? Do I have the account set up wrong coming through the server?

Sorry for the confusion, but Todd was referring to the mail service, not the account setup. There is no way to set up sharing under our email service.
