go to settings>email+accounts....click on your outlook account... click download new content and change the interval... 15mins, 30mins, hourly, daily
also you can manually update from the outlook tile by pressing sync... the icon with the two arrows...

If it is your primary account, you will not have those options because it will sync that by default. I know what you are saying, and see it also, but it will still sync. So you should have calendar and contacts already even if it does not show those checkboxes.
Now - I too wish WP8 had "quiet hours" setting but alas not at this time. The only suggestion I have is to turn off notifications for new emails or alternatively put your phone to vibrate mode before hitting the sack.

With the release of IMAP for Outlook.com, here is what I noticed. If I set up a second account for Outlook, it names it Outlook 2 on the Lumia. I then, now have choices to manually sync and all the other options I want for syncing such as calendar, tasks, etc....without setting up a second acct, you cannot have these choices and cannot sync manually. So, when I had sync daily, I received my emails at 2am.
Question - With the main account, it is set to sync daily, meaning, I will get emails anytime in the day? Again at 2am? Can I just un-check the sync email box and not worry about it or because this is linked to my other accounts, will I mess things up?
I am looking to either modify current setting for main account (which I cannot figure out) or do just add a second account? If I add the second account, will I use more battery drain?
Really just want the best option to set to manual syncing.
