Sharing contacts on IMAP

Had a situation where a customer has 2 computers, IMAP mailbox, Outlook client and needed to be able to synchronize contacts across both computers. Unfortunately IMAP doesn’t support contacts folders. Outlook has no synchronization tools, so once again CodeTwo to the rescue
Of course this could be done using CodeTwo Public Folders which is a great product, but here as there is no expectation of ever being more than 2 computers the best solution seemed to be CodeTwo Outlook Sync. Very simple install, computers find each other and synchronize automatically, changes made on one computer appear on the other pretty much real time.

And as always if you take one computer off the LAN and make changes offline once you bring it back they re-connect, detect changes and synchronize automatically. Money well spent.
