In its quest to replace Microsoft Exchange, Google will soon offer a full Google Apps sync for Outlook, so that users can seamlessly transition from Microsoft Exchange Server (or, presumably, just plain Outlook) to Google Apps. A one-click installer is available now.
Everything works great except for the email sync, since Google has apparently not updated the Apps control panel with the setting to enable it just yet.
Unfortunately, this does nothing to enable contacts sharing between Google Apps user accounts, which is the feature I really need.
Here is Google’s video introducing the new sync app:
Edit: It looks like full functionality is only available to Premium Edition users. I had no trouble getting this to sync my calendar and contacts, but it would not do email.
