Sync Outlook Contacts with Mac

Olga Weis

We are pretty sure you already know Apple's main marketing strategy - make you use their products exclusively and their software apps solely.

Other online services, including the ever popular Google, allow data access through web interface. However using this method is not always the most convenient.

Synchronizing Outlook with Mac is not a hard task, however once you go a little advanced - like automatic synchronization - you may bump into certain difficulties. That's exactly when you'll need some help from a specialized app to perform synchronization not just automatically, but also in a safe and smooth manner. SyncMate allows synchronizing not just Address Book, but other data in your Outlook online account as well. Once you install SyncMate you'll need to setup your preferences once, and from then on it will sync data in the background without you having to interfere even slightly.

Due to macOS limitations SyncMate only syncs with online Outlook accounts; sync with desktop Outlook app for Mac is not supported at this time.
