    Getting Outlook to work with Samsung Galaxy

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tablet that I absolutely love save for the problem I have concerning outlook. I cannot get Outlook set up on the tab even though it allows for multiple accounts. Gmail was not a problem at all. The tablet runs Android Jelly Bean OS.

    Any suggestions most appresiated.

    Respectfully
    James

    Am not sure I understand. Are you trying to install Outlook or synchronize it with the tab?

    Ah, I apologize. All I want to do is sync my current Outlook account with the tablet. I've tried manually configuring the account and that did not work.

    Seems you need Google Sync to do it. It can be downloaded from here: http://www.google.com/sync/index.html

    Fred Langa wrote an article about it, in Windows Secrets: https://windowssecrets.com/langalist...ndroid-device/

    It's accessible only for paid subscribers.

    You might check out an app called Local Sync from the google play store. You set up the software on both your PC as the server and then on the device as the client (in my case a Galaxy S2 phone). It works wireless or wired and I have found it to work well in syncing contacts, calendar, notes etc without having to go through Google.

    Another good one is gSyncit, which works the same way as Local Sync. I've used it for a couple of years to keep everything synchronized from Outlook on my home office computer to gmail and its calendar to my Samsung device

    James:

    There are 2 Outlooks and there seems to be confusion about which one you're referring to. There is Outlook XXXX that is part of Office XXXX, and there is Outlook.COM, which is an online version, which MS introduced last spring(?). Supposedly it competes w/ Gmail, but without the spying that Gmail does on your email (in order to sell advertising). So which one are YOU referring to?

    If you are referring to Outlook (as part of Office) then see the responses from MMYERS and RUIRIB. Seems to me they have answered the question pretty clearly. It doesn't appear to me that you are referring to Outlook.com, so please correct me if I'm wrong.

    James,

    Have you tried Samsung's Kies syncing program. It's supposed to work on their tablets as well as phones. I use it on my Galaxy S II phone...works like a charm. HTH

    James-

    You can also try My Phone Explorer. http://www.fjsoft.at/en/

    Just be careful when installing as it tries to install other "Stuff". I find it is much easier than Samsungs Kies. All my clients use it.
