Why Synchronize Your E-mail Contacts?
Have you ever lost hours of time looking for contacts that aren’t listed in Microsoft Outlook, even though you could swear you have the contact details somewhere? Did you then find the phone number or e-mail address you were looking for on a different computer, or listed in your Google Mail account?
Having several different address books can be pretty frustrating, with both Google and Outlook address books contributing to the issue: it’s pretty impossible to merge or sync contacts with these services.
In fact, there are countless utilities that claim to do this, with some of them falling way short of the mark, being unable to even run in Microsoft XP, never mind Vista or 7. Others still require access to Google business services, such as Google Apps Sync. This is a competent application but sadly doesn’t allow access for standard users.
Being able to sync your Google contacts with Outlook would be pretty useful in this situation, and thanks to Gcontactsynch, the Google Contacts Outlook Synchronizer, this is now possible!
