Until yesterday, Part 2 of the comparison was going to look at some of the more esoteric feature comparison between Google Apps and Exchange. Specifically, I was going to cover how Google Apps new Tasks features integrate with email and calendar functions in comparison to isolated manner in which Tasks function in Exchange/Outlook (separate reminders, separate date tracking).
Today’s announcement by Google of a MAPI-based Outlook Synchronization solution, however, changes the focus completely.
With this capability, Outlook users can continue to use Outlook without the limitations of running as an IMAP client.
We’ll be testing the add-on over the next week or so and I will post our findings as well.
