Calendars, Contacts, Tasks, E-mails and such other personal and public folders that you need to be synchronized can be done quite easily now. You do not need the Exchange server either. Sharing and syncing Outlook and Google calendar folders are no more problems at all. Sync2 needs to be installed on the machines of your teammates, your own machines and in a few mouse clicks the files you need to be in sync are truly in sync.
A wizard guides you through the initial synchronization at installation. You can schedule further sync at scheduled times or when you want to. A simple wizard will guide you during installation; afterwards you can schedule your synchronization or do it manually, by your request. The sync happens in the background even if the Outlook is not running. MS Exchange public folders are supported and the Sync2 does sync of Outlook PST files/folders. The read/unread status is maintained for the mail items. No additional plug-in or add on components are needed.

Cons: No adverse issues noticed. One has to be fastidious about getting the sync done periodically for best results.
Overall a 3 star application for a useful functionality.
