Mac Users Experiencing Issues With Outlook

Of late, Outlook users have been experiencing several issues regarding the syncing of information in OS X. The most commonly found problems with Outlook include those related to Apple Mail’s IMAP syncing. Many websites have reported fixes to overcome this problem regarding the Outlook messages.

There have been many issues reported related to the compatibility of applications on the Mac computer. Earlier the problems were reported related to Maverick’s and's support for Gmail, and other questionable support for other IMAP mail services. Although Apple reportedly released a fix for this solution, it didn’t do much. Not only were existing issues left unsolved, but the issues still continued. As stated by the ZDNet readers, some of the main issues in on OS X Mavericks include having trouble with missing commas in Cc: and Bcc: fields in addition to the slow performance of the application while opening some attachments in it. Now, the users are also experiencing the same sort of issues in Outlook. According to a recent MacWindows blog post, Editor John Rizzo mentioned about the existing sync problems with Outlook on Mavericks, and the possible fixes that can be done by using Microsoft Exchange Online. He also suggested a different solution to overcome this issues and that is by running Outlook for Windows in a number of virtualization choices. But then, this choice won’t be suitable for everyone.

Another quick fix suggested to solve the problems with Outlook includes running the application for Windows on your Mac in a Windows virtual machine using components such as Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion, or Oracle VirtualBox. This is because even though now Apple doesn’t entertain Sync services from OS X, the company still offers Sync Services for Windows OSs, including Windows 8. According to the Windows tech support, the sync Services for Windows is available in the current version of iTunes for Windows. This means that the users can easily do the iOS-to-Windows syncing directly. Now, if you're already running Outlook for Windows in a virtual machine, you may find it easy. But in other cases, it may prove to be quite expensive. Rizzo also said that there have been rumors about the addition of CalDAV and CardDAV support to Outlook for Mac by Microsoft, which is another viable solution.

Hence, it can be said that the problems of Mac users with the Outlook application still continues. It is yet to be seen how much time Microsoft takes to curb such issues permanently.
