    I use Ms Outlook as my default email. I have added the email as an Exchange email with sync for all. However, my calendar won't sync. I have deleted the account and reinstalled and it still won't sync.

    Another issue is that when I go to the calendar to select calendar, it has a calendar for each email and a Samsung calendar. I do have several accounts on the phone but almost all of them them are set for email sync only. How do I remove these from the select calendar page?

    The calendar I want to sync won't sync and the calendars I don't want to show up won't go away.

    I don't know the S9's calendar app, but every other Android calendar app I've ever used has tick boxes for each calendar so I can choose whether they are displayed or not. So you should at least be able to stop them showing on your actual calendar views.

    As for your Outlook calendar, is it Microsoft's Outlook app you use for that? I've not used that app for a year or two, but when I did one of the frustrations of it was that it would display the Outlook calendar in the Outlook app itself but did not make it available to the Android calendar service, so no other app could see it (whereas the Outlook app's predecessor, the now-discontinued Outlook.com app, did). In the end I solved that by using a different app for my Outlook email (I use Nine, which is a paid app, but I think some other email apps like AquaMail might handle Outlook/Exchange calendar syncing as well).

    The calendar app does have the tick marks to select. However, I use two different calendars and I prefer not to have email accounts that have no calendar sync even showing up on the list. Is there a way to keep them off the list?

    I am using the stock calendar app on the phone. It worked fine until recently. I noticed about 2 weeks ago that nothing would update.
