Unfortunately, Microsoft Outlook will not sync contacts with Android phones, and in fact it doesn't even sync with Windows Phone 7 either. There are a few ways Rene can accomplish this goal, however.
- Microsoft Exchange Server
- Google Apps
If Rene were to pay for Google Apps, then he can use a special sync utility to sync with Microsoft Outlook.
- Third party free software
If Rene were using a Microsoft Exchange Server, then it would be possible. Most corporations use this, and with the Exchange Server it works fine.
There is a 3rd party solution to this called Contacts Sync from PPPIndia.
Leo suggests making a backup of these Outlook contacts first before using any of these sync options.
