How to Sync Outlook 2007

By Jackson Lewis

Outlook 2007 was the last version of the Outlook software line produced in the 2000s. The program provides time and information management tools such as calendar sharing capabilities, SharePoint 3.0 integration, shared task management, and the ability to send and receive emails. Outlook users often have the need to sync Outlook 2007 after working off-line in order to maintain consistent data both on- and off-line; this can be achieve with a few easy steps.

Step 1

Open Microsoft Outlook by double-clicking the program icon located on your computer's desktop or choosing the Outlook icon from the "Program Files" submenu located under the "Start" menu.

Step 2

Manually synchronize the desired Outlook folder. Double-click on it (on the left-hand side of your Outlook display), then select the "Send/Receive" menu button located at the top of your Outlook display (or, alternatively, via the "Tools" menu) and select the "This Folder" option to synchronize the selected off-line folder. If you only click the "Send/Receive" menu button, all off-line folders will be synchronized.

Step 3

Set up automatic synchronization. Choose the "Tools" menu, followed by "Options."

Step 4

Choose the "Send Immediately when connected" check box located in the "Send/Receive" section of the menu.

Step 5

Ensure that the "Perform an automatic send/receive when exiting" menu option is selected in the "Send/Receive" dialog box, and choose the "Close" menu button. Click "OK." Outlook 2007 will now be synchronized and set up to do so automatically in the future.
