I have Outlook at work with a lot of my contact info. I have Gmail contacts on my personal email account. What would the best way be to keep all of this data syncronized without any overhead?

I'm using EssentialPIM; the free version suits me fine for all my needs. The pro version syncs with with Outlook, Windows Mobile devices, Google Calendar, etc.

+1 for a super lightweight Outlook killer! – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Oct 10 '09 at 15:33
The comparison page (… ) says the free version cannot sync with Outlook & Google, is this right ? – Sathya Oct 10 '09 at 17:10
you are right, the free version doesn't sync, but i don't use any other PIMs, so i don't need sync. since it is portable, i'll have it always with me anyway. – Molly7244 Oct 10 '09 at 19:07

Whatever you do, I'd not recommend third-party services like Plaxo. I really fail to understand why people think it's all right to send my contact details to some service I never asked for...

Using Plaxo for contact management doesn't require you to send contact details around. You can use it purely for your own contact management. – Matt May 26 '11 at 1:46

I don't use outlook, but I find it best to keep all you contact, mail and calendar info with google and then sync up what ever desktop app you are using to gmail/google calendar. That way you don't have to worry about duplicated mail/contacts, and you also have your mail/contacts backed up should anything ever happen to your computer.
