I recently received an MXCHIP IoT DevKIT and I experimented the Azure connectivity functions available in the Arduino library for this platform.
The "DevKit -Get Started" section of the github gives detailed description of each step:
I'll summarize the actions I had to perform to establish an MQTT exchange between my MXCHIP board and Azure IoT Hub:
I first installed two tools on my machine:
- Ardunio IDE
- Visual Studio Code
VS Code contains all specific entries required to handle Azure functions, which are not in the Arduino IDE, moreover it is a pretty efficient IDE compared to Arduino.
Two extensions must be installed in VS Code: "Azure IoT Workbench" and "Arduino". Then the specific platform for the MX board must be installed from Arduino Board manager.
At this point I had all the tools to build and run the GetStarted application, but I still needed to go through a few configuration steps on the MX board:
- Set my WiFi credentials (Button B + reset as explained in the get started)
- Set the connection string to my IoT Hub device (Button A + reset ...)

Yes, I was referring to local Outlook synchronization. Exchange Server synching is definitely provided...

The lack of Outlook synchronization is indeed surprising. I am assuming you were expecting synchronization...
