Use this method if your account is on the "old" Outlook.com server. If your account was moved to the new servers, you can move appointments (and contacts) from a pst file into the Calendar (or Contacts) folder just by dragging them. Note: new accounts are now being created on the new server and all accounts will be moved by Summer 2016. How do you know if your account was moved? Log into Outlook.com - if the banner above the mailbox says Outlook Mail, it's on the new server. If you added the account to Outlook, it will be listed as Microsoft Exchange account type in Account Settings.
I would like to export my Outlook calendar to the calendar at Live.com. How do I do this?
It’s actually very easy to do. If you have your Outlook.com account set up in Outlook 2013 as an Outlook.com account type (EAS) or in Outlook 2003, 2007, or 2010 using the Outlook Connector you can copy or drag the appointments from one calendar to the other.
To drag the appointments to the Outlook.com Calendar folder in Outlook: Use a List view on your calendar, Select All (Ctrl+A) and using the Move to Folder command (or Copy to Folder) or drag them to the Outlook.com calendar in the folder list. This works fine with the Outlook Connector but appointments won’t always sync up when you are using Outlook 2013.
For this reason, it’s better to export the calendar as an .ics file and import it into Outlook.com.
The maximum file size you can import is 10 MB.
To export the calendar as an .ics (iCalendar) file, select the calendar folder in Outlook, click File, Save Calendar.
If you don’t change the options under More Options, the exported calendar will be Availability only, Today only. Most people will choose Whole Calendar as the Date Range and Full Details.
Click Show (it is clicked in this screenshot and now says Hide) if you want to include details of private appointments. Note: Don't select Include Attachments, Outlook.com doesn't support attachments at this time.
Select the calendar you saved and choose the desired options. When you're done, click the Import button to import the .ics file to your calendar.
