I had the same problem and think I found the place to correct it: 1) Open the e-mail client program on the Samsung 2) Go to "menu | account settings" 3) Disable SMS-sync Hope it works!

You don't mention which phone or Android version you're using. On my Motorola Droid (Android 2.2) the built-in E-mail application allows me to connect to my employers Exchange server. When I created the account, I had three options for connecting: POP3, IMAP, and Exchange. There are other e-mail clients out there that may also connect to Exchange.

Android syncs to Gmail, Contacts, and Calendar nearly effortlessly. It seems like in your case it's Outlook that is the problem child. Do you need to sync contacts with Outlook too? If not, a one-time export/import from Outlook to Gmail should meet your needs. I would say have Outlook sync with Google and have the phone sync with Google. Syncing the phone ...

The easiest way would be to synchronise your contacts with your Google Account (you have one of those, right?). If your account is signed in to that Google Account all your contacts will soon appear on that phone. Something like OggSync might help, although I'm sure there's others.

You can try Go Contact Sync, there are some mixed reviews on that site about it. On the other hand, I have read good things about gSyncIt, but it is not free. It will sync calendars, contacts, tasks, and notes. These are not specific to android, as the information is actually syncing with Google Contacts, not your device.

You could try K9 Mail. I use it for non-Exchange accounts and it works great, so I know it's a great email app in general. I believe it has the ability to connect to Exchange servers, too, so...there you go!

I use MyPhoneExplorer on windows7 to sync outlook 2010 with my android phone.

It's there all along! Open up the email app and press the menu button. Go to View>Folders You now need to tap the folder icon next to Inbox and it will 'expand' and display all the subfolders under it. This MUST be the icon and not the text. It wont work if you press the text so you must press the icon. I have to say this is pretty poor UI design, as it ...

Have you thought about doing this over the air, rather than using a desktop client for the sync? If you use Outlook, presumably your company uses Exchange for it's mail servers? If so, and if they allow Exchange Active Sync, and/or have Outlook Web Access enabled, then you could sync your phone's mail and calendar directly with them over the air. The ...

You might give Google Calendar Sync a try. It's a tiny application which will run on your Windows PC and synchronize your outlook calendar with googles calendar, so you'll have all your appointments always on your mobile. Works like a charm for me, and you'll not nitice it's even running.

Apart from the grand old man of the syncing world that Ryan's pointed out above, there's also GOATS and TouchDown as other notables. There's a fairly detailed table at http://www.syncdroid.net/ that illustrates and lists software designed to sync data to Android devices.

You need a third party tool to sync your Outlook and Gmail contact books together. Google offers a tool you can download to sync, and there are others out there you can download/buy if you don't like theirs.

You can't have email push notifications over POP3. It's an old protocol and simply doesn't support push. It doesn't matter what client you use or what kind of mail server. If you can set up Outlook to access Gmail through IMAP instead of POP3, and if Outlook supports IMAP IDLE for push notifications, then you'll get push notifications. Otherwise, you might ...

You can easily turn of Google Sync for any Android phone. Just go to Account Settings, Sync. One problem is that whenever you get a new ROM, or Google does an update, these settings get turned back on. So you need to check periodically. There are a number of 3rd party sync products, with free trial periods. Just give them a try. You can find them ...

Propably this could give you a hint: we have 3 accounts: company@gmail.com buddy1@gmail.com buddy2@gmail.com buddy1 and buddy2 added company@gmail.com's calendar as an external calendar (granted by company@gmail.com) buddy1 adds an event and sets it as "Private" & "Available" --> company & buddy2 see nothing! buddy1 adds an event and sets it ...

Have a look at Sync Calendar. With the right settings I think it can accomplish what you want. If it's not what you're looking for you can try Outlook Mobile Calendar but it only has 3.5 (EDIT: 2) stars.

I'm using version 4.0.3 on a Samsung Galaxy S2. To mount the internal storage and any installed SD card via the USB do the following: Unplug USB cable. Goto Settings -> More... -> USB utilities -> Connect storage to PC and follow the instructions.

Try Touchdown. Their feature list includes "Email Folders" and allows for rules/filters (per this thread). If you like it, make sure to buy a licence before the 30-day trial is up. I'm not an Exchange-on-Android user myself, but of those I know who are many prefer Touchdown.

You will probably find MyPhoneExplorer quite useful. It does not only sync your contacts etc. with outlook, but provides a lot of additional useful features, such as managing your SMS, Calllists, Apps, Files, handling Calls, create backups... You might want to visit the products page for more detailled information.

I have been using ‘Blue SyncRoid’ to sync my contacts and calendars between Outlook and Android via Bluetooth. Used to forget my USB cable and unwilling to share my personal information (contacts and calendars) on the cloud to sync my info. Pretty satisfied with the solution. Simple and user friendly. They also have a trial version launched. Highly ...

It sounds like you're happy using Google/GMail as an intermediary for the sync, if you've already tried Google Calendar Sync, if so then there are a few options. It sounds unlikely from your question, but if you're part of an organisation that's given you a paid-for Google Apps account then Google Apps Sync is available for you. This syncs an Outlook ...

The folders are already there, by default your Inbox is shown, while inside your Inbox, choose Menu => Folders and you will see a list of all your corporate folders. Pick one to switch to viewing it.

The only solution I know of for the level of syncing you want to achieve is CompanionLink. It will sync Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes between Outlook and Android, it will also cost you $49.95.

SMS Backup + will sync SMS messages to your GMail account, you can then sync those to your outlook using Google Apps Sync.

Touchdown is your only option to fix this. An admin at my company got his Motorola Droid 2 and had the same problem. We tried everything we could find online in an attempt to sync all his contacts. Eventually we came across touchdown, paid the 19.99 and it worked fine. With the exception of notes it cleared up all the short comings of the stock Android ...

Currently there is no way to do this on an HTC phone. The People app from HTC will automatically display names as First and Last. However if you connect the phone to exchange, as I have mine, then all Exchange contacts show up as Last and First, including in Mail and in People. So as of right now I would say if you can get his phone on Exchange, only ...

The issue persisted even after the 2.2 upgrade. Switching to Touchdown is one reasonably inexpensive alternative.

How often is your Exchange email on your phone syncing to the Exchange server? It may not be going away because the sync isn't set soon enough? My guess is that it doesn't know that the email was marked as read until it syncs back to the server.
