    Hello! Just picked up a Surface Pro 3 and love it. I had a couple of quick questions though.

    1. I installed Office 365 Premium. Is there any way to set up email and calendar push notifications?
    2. Can I have the default calendar app integrate and show events that are sheduled via Outlook 2013? Thats basically the only calendar I use, but the calendar app is very friendly.

    I'm sure I will have more over time. Both of these questions probably are handled the same way with a Surface Pro or Surface Pro 2, so I figured someone might know the answers.

    Cheers,

    -Paul

    Setup the same account in the Mail App as Outlook and you will get your notifications.....

    Thanks for the quick reply! Nice. I just want to make sure that the Mail App doesn't actually sync email as it wouldn't make sense to have 2 copies of everything downloaded. I use Outlook 2013 for work.

    Found out the Calendar App does have the ability to sync with Exchange in the settings, so that is dialed in.

    Edit: Looks like after setting the Calendar App up to sync with Exchange, it works with the Mail App too. Sorted! Thanks again.

    The Mail App will, but you can control how much....I use both the Mail App and Outlook. I use Outlook while working and the Modern UI for the weekend and off hours....
