We get a lot of questions about keeping Outlook data in sync between computers. Previously, those questions were always answered with “get a hosted Exchange” account. Well, with the new version of Windows Live Hotmail comes a new sync option: Microsoft Office Outlook Connector
The free version gives sync access to email and contacts. A paid subscription for Windows Live Hotmail Plus enables additional syncing services:
- Manage, share, and sync Windows Live Calendar in Outlook
- Access to Tasks and Notes
- 10 GB of storage
- No account expiration*
- No graphical adsÃ¢â‚¬”no clutter, just your mail
- File attachments up to 20 MBÃ¢â‚¬”send more photos, more documents, or almost anything you want
A paid subscription costs $19.95 per year
I played with it a few weeks back and it worked quite well. In fact, I think I’m going to upgrade to the Plus account, and begin forwarding all of my email to Hotmail instead.
This gives Windows Live Hotmail users something Google doesn’t offer: full, seamless sync between calendar, contacts, tasks, and email to a local client, while also getting one-stop access to the same data over the internet.
Worth checking out for those with multiple computers like desktops, Tablet PCs, UMPCs, etc.
