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.

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 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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...
