Integrating Microsoft Outlook and Exchange with G Suite

G Suite offers a range of options to ease your migration from Microsoft Outlook® and Exchange. For example, users can continue using Outlook to access their G Suite mail, contacts, and calendars. Here's how to set this up:

1. Seamless Integration with Outlook
G Suite Sync for Microsoft Outlook lets you use Microsoft Outlook as a client for G Suite email, calendar, and contacts. Email, calendar events, and contacts are all synchronized between G Suite and Outlook. Outlook Notes are synced with Google Drive. And your organization's Global Address List is synchronized, as well.

2. Alternate Outlook Integration Options
Alternately, you can access your G Suite email from Outlook using the IMAP protocol. For more information and step-by-step instructions see the supported IMAP client list.

3. Connecting Calendaring on your Exchange Server to G Suite
The Google Calendar Connectors are a set of services, typically deployed by our Google Cloud Partners, that allow Google Calendar to interoperate with Exchange 2003 servers through the bi-directional sharing of Calendar Free / Busy information. Each of the tools is installed in the local Exchange environment and must be maintained and configured by an Exchange Administrator.



4. Dual Delivery options for Exchange and G Suite
Dual delivery allows incoming mail to be delivered to your current email infrastructure as well as G Suite Email. This lets your organization test G Suite Email without interrupting current systems, making it a nearly risk-free pilot. It also allows users to test G Suite without having to abandon their current setup.

5. Migrating Email to G Suite
If you're interested in migrating mail from Exchange Server, an Outlook Client or another email system to G Suite, review the list of migration options.

6. Single Sign-On and Directory Sync
You can use G Suite tools to leverage your existing data with G Suite. G Suite provides single sign-on (SSO) support for SAML based systems, to centralize authorization. Also, you can use Google Cloud Directory Sync to provision and synchronize users and groups based on the user data in your LDAP server, such as Microsoft Active Directory or IBM Domino.
