Outlook Setup with Google Apps Outlook Sync (Recommended)

Google Apps Outlook Sync is an Outlook plugin that will synchronise Outlook's calendars, contacts, tasks and emails with your Google Apps account. It will automatically create a new Outlook profile when you run the above installation program.

Google Apps Sync works best with a single primary account. If you already use another Exchange email account, continue with the IMAP setup rather than Google Apps Sync for your second account.

Download and run "Google Apps Sync for Outlook" here...

Just run the program and follow the prompts - it will settup everything for you.
