I am running the latest version of Lion with Outlook 2011 for Mac. My principal calendar is maintained on Google as it sync quite well with Pocket Informant.  Despite many attempts I am unable to sync iCal with Outlook 2011. Google sync quite well with iCal via a utility, but despite setting sync services to on, Outlook 2011 does not sync with iCal. Can anyone offer suggestions here?



Many Thanx

    The bottom line is that Office for Mac does not support CalDAV, which is the type of calendar hosted by Google and iCloud. Outlook will only sync calendars with iCal that were:


    1. Created in Outlook.

    2. Created in iCal "On My Mac".


    If a calendar is created "On My Mac", then it is hosted locally (on your Mac) and Outlook can sync to it.


    If it's created in Google or iCloud, then it's hosted on a server in the cloud. iCal syncs to that server using CalDAV. Outlook doesn't support CalDAV, so it can't sync with those calendars.
