I've just been hunting around for a way to import my Outlook contacts into Gmail for the G1.

Here's quick way of doing this thanks to theregoesdave.com

If you Export your Contacts CSV file in DOS format instead of Windows, your Google Contacts will sync like a dream.

Nice tip! I switched out using Outlook a loooong time ago. GMail is just so much more practical - especially like me if you need to manage multiple domains address's and whatnot.

Why not just use CompanionLink. It syncs Outlook contacts, calendar and tasks with Google and Google Android phones from one desktop application. Two-way sync.

Hi,

Does anyone know an easy way to get you Outlook emails (inbox, folders and the emails within them) to sync with the HTC Hero??

I could do it easily on Win Mo, but it doesn't seem to be the case for Android.

Any help would be gratefully received!

Cheers

Zippyioa

I use a hosted exchange service. Email subfolders and the emails there-in sync over the air, along with Calendar and contacts. Android is currently missing the capability (as far as I know) to sync Tasks and Notes, which sux. The added advantage to hosted exchange is that multiple PCs will have the same outlook data... subfolders, sent items, calendar, notes, tasks, etc.

I think an IMAP email server will give you more capability (over POP) as far as subfolders are concerned, and you won't have to pay for hosted exchange, which runs about $7-9 per month.

So you are saying if you have Exchange hosting you get wireless syncing of your emails, contact, calendar, etc. I have a Samsung Intrepid by Sprint and I think Windows Mobile is flaky, and am not crazy about the phone.

Why does it not sync Outlook Notes? Outlook Notes is the most important component I want to sync. The others are incidental.

Unless it also syncs Outlook Notes, CompanionLink is useless to me.

Sorry, Companionlink looks like a half-baked product - not complete and/or not well thought out. Contacts from Outlook show up for addressing emails, but not for making phone calls. Calendar view on is very linked and data changing is very clunky. Syncing process is multiple steps spread over both Android device and PC. 12-year-old HotSync for PalmOS products, which had its problems, is a dream compared to CompanionLink.
