  1. It has been years from outlook 2007 to 2016 and Microsoft still does not integrate CalDAV, CardDAV, Google Calendar,Gmail’s contacts and Google Tasks into Outlook. Before 8/1/2014, I was happy with Google Calendar Sync. Then, Google discontinued this software and I had a tough time not until I found EVO Collaborator for Outlook. It is quite useful to sync my Google Calendar, contacts and tasks with Outlook. Yet, I got reminding “ding” sound when new mail arrives at my Gmail mailbox. It is like a push mail mechanism by Gmail push notification.I guess those of you who stay with Outlook rather than Mail for Windows 10 can give it a try.
