How to stop Outlook from synchronizing with your Android phone.
As for any business professional, Outlook is an essential application on my phone. It allows me to send & receive emails, schedule appointments, and reminders. These are all powerful tools used to streamline my workday with one exception: Outlook has a habit of downloading all my work contacts to my Android phone. This would be okay if Outlook gave me the option to opt into this feature rather than automatically doing it.
For many, it’s frustrating to have hundreds of unnecessary contacts synced to their phone. In this post, I will show you how to take back your phone and remove those unnecessary contacts!

Directions for un-synchronizing contacts between Outlook and an Android device
Go into settings and open Outlook on the Application Manager.
Turn off Contacts, Location, & Phone.
Now open the Outlook App and go into settings and click on your account. Make sure the Sync Contact slide bar is grayed out before you delete your account. It can take up to 5 minutes depending on how many contacts are synced into your phone.
Re-add your email back into Outlook and you’re done!
