Google Warns of Issues with Its Outlook Sync Tool for Apps - CIO.com - Business Technology Leadership

I wonder if GAS will stay perma-beta, as is the case with other Google offerings

In a blog posting Tuesday, Google listed some popular Outlook add-ons and features that remain off-limits to Apps, even with the new sync tool.

"Unfortunately, some plug-ins don't yet work with Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook, and we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight a few of the more common ones: Microsoft Office Outlook Connector, Acrobat PDF Maker Toolbar, Outlook Change Notifier," reads the Google posting.

To continue using any of these plug-ins, users have to uninstall the Google sync tool.

In addition, Apps Sync for Outlook doesn't play well with programs that interact directly with the Outlook data file, such as Windows Desktop Search and PGP.com's encryption plug-in.

Specifically, Windows Desktop Search will not properly index Google Apps Sync data files. "So in order to stop indexing from running indefinitely, the Google Apps Sync installer disables it. We recommend using the default Outlook search," Google said.
