I have the following problem: I'm trying to synch a task list ("Synchronize with Outlook" button in the ribbon). With SharePoint 2010 this button would lead to a pop up from Outlook ("do you really want to synchronize"...) and I would be done - the task list will be synchronized with Outlook.
With SharePoint 2013 we now have the Work Management Service and Exchange Task synchronization. I did set up the work management service application, but what I do not have is Exchange 2013 - hence task synchronization via Exchange wouldn't work (we have Exchange 2010).
Here is the question: When I click "Synchronize with Outlook" I get a new pop-up stating if I want to synchronize the list. When I click "yes" it is trying to synchronize, but I receive an error. I did not check ULS logs, but I'm assuming its trying to do this via Work Management Service & Exchange which can't work as I don't have Exchange 2013.
Can I go back to the "old way" of synchronizing task lists by just disabling / stopping the work management service application? Does the "old way" (clicking the synchronize button, Outlook directly starts) still exist or do I have to use Exchange 2013?
