A new version of this tool is available for download and will be auto-updated in the next few weeks. The following new features are now available:
- Support for Microsoft Outlook® 2010
Google Apps Sync now supports Microsoft Outlook® 2010—both 32-bit and 64-bit editions. Here are a few things to note about using Outlook 2010:
- Administrators: If you're pushing the upgrade to users via an MSI file, note that there's a separate MSI installation file for the 64-bit edition of Outlook, so be sure to download the correct file for your users. See the installation instructions at Administrator setup for Google Apps Sync.
- Only MSI-based editions of Outlook 2010 are supported, not Click-to-Run editions. If you've already installed a Click-to-Run edition, you can follow these instructions from Microsoft to switch to using an MSI-based Office edition.
- Using free/busy sync with Outlook 2010 requires installing this free/busy hotfix package from Microsoft.
- If you're running a 32-bit version of Outlook on a 64-bit version of Windows, and you need to configure Google Apps Sync via your Windows registry, be sure to create and modify keys in the correct location for 32 bit applications. For details, see the instructions on using the Windows registry at Configure limits and options via the registry.
- Rich contact data available in the Global Address List.
Microsoft Outlook® users can now see available data from all fields supported by the dynamic Global Address List (not just the name, email address, and one phone number as in previous releases). Newly supported global address fields include street address information, title, company, department, multiple phone numbers, and much more. Check out the complete list of supported fields.
- Enhanced support for custom From addresses.
When sending a message in Outlook from a custom From address created in Gmail: Your message no longer appears for recipients as "sent on behalf of your_primary_Google_Apps_address" as it has in past releases. Instead, the message lists only the custom From address as the sender.
When you reply to an email that's sent to one of your custom From addresses, Outlook automatically enters that address in your reply's From field. Making a custom address your default sending address in Gmail causes you send from that address by default in Outlook, too (it's the address you send from if you leave the From field blank).
