You're a life saver ;). Really nice trick !


It used to work, I just reinstalled windows and I'm unable to add a dummy Icloud account. Windows says that they can't check the credentials as expected, but the account is no more added to the list and can't be edited. Tried any of this in the latest windows version?


The issue I spoke of seems to have been fixed in latest windows build (Version 10.0.19044 Build 19044)


The Windows calendar app is nice, that is when it works! Which for my case is pretty much never...

There is a Microsoft account in the calendar but of course (this account) is not listed in the manage accounts section! I'm using a local windows account


The same thing happens with the people app as well. Have you encountered something similar?


This no longer works on Windows 11. They have changed the way they sync with iCloud. It says that Microsoft requires a app password to be created on icloud that Outlook for Windows will use and will sync iCloud data with MS Cloud. This method appears to be obsolete now unfortunately. They probably discovered the security hole that people were using and patched it. In all honesty, that's a good thing. After all, this method was a work-around, or back door if you will, to get in via a method designed for something else and this was just exploiting that flaw.
