I use a google accounts for mail/contacts/calendar. I use Outlook 2010 on my desktop and an iphone. Iphone syncs calendar/contacts/mail via what I presume is faux exchange mechanism, anyway it works.

Mail obviously works in Outlook using IMAP. I used to get calendar sync using google calendar sync - however this does not support Outlook 2010. Given this is something Google have been alerted to since 2009 - I presume they have no plans to fix it.

Is there a solution here? Can I make Outlook 2010 sync in a similair way to how my iphone works (using m.gmail.com ?). Any other ideas?

Thanks!

Use gSyncit instead. It costs $15.

However, it:

  • supports Outook 2003, 2007, 2010
  • Can sync to Multiple Google accounts (including Google Apps for domain accounts)
  • Can sync not only contacts, but also calendar, tasks etc.
  • Is actively supported by the developer, unlike Google Calendar Sync (which is suffering from bit-rot)

I used to be a Google Calendar Sync user myself, until about a year back, when I got tired of the buggy software and switched to gSyncit instead.

I also use gSyncit, main point is that it supports Outlook 2010 x64 for which I don't think there's any alternative solution –  Joel Mansford Jul 12 '10 at 10:56

As per the GMail Blog,

Google Calendar Sync now supports Outlook 2010 — our top feature request. Outlook 2010 comes in 32-bit and 64-bit versions, and currently only 32-bit is supported. To start syncing your calendar with Outlook 2010, download Google Calendar Sync version 0.9.3.6. Once you install it, a Settings window will appear. Enter your account’s email address and password, choose your sync option and sync frequency, and you’re done! (Note: If you’re already using Google Calendar Sync, you’ll still need to download and install this new version in order to be able to sync with Outlook 2010. If you need help, take a look at our getting started guide.)

This is useful (although I can't seem to get it to work) but the problem is it's only 1 way - outlook consuming the web service as opposed to a 2 way sync. blog.sublogic.com/2010/03/08/… would have been perfect, but it seems this does not work with 64bit Outlook - which is why I presume Google have gone back to the drawing board on their the sync system. –  Chris Padfield Jun 22 '10 at 18:22

I've tried a dozen solutions and this is my favorite by far. I'm using it with Outlook 2013 x64

I use Go Contact Sync Mod since 2011 to have wireless, unattended, 2-way Outlook-Cloud-Phone sync. See more details here: http://superuser.com/a/803499/61033
