Temporary Work Around So, the developers say that sync to iCal is eventually coming through a pushed update. I have discovered a relatively easy work around until that point. It's a pain and we shouldn't have to do it, but such is life. Even with Entourage, you had to sync it to iCal and then iTunes synced that data to your phone/pad. If you open your Outlook Calendar and iCal next to each other, you can drag and drop from Outlook to iCal, sort of a manual sync. Only catch I found is you have to drag and drop onto the correct day. It transfers the time info correctly, but it will alter the date to whatever day you drop it onto.
Outlook calendar/contacts syncing on Mac 2016 I understand that Outlook for Mac / OSX will not sync outlook.com contacts or calendar, although this works fine with iOS e.g. IPad / iPhone. Just google it and the issue is raised all over the place. Microsoft's Outlook for Mac program does not allow you to sync your calendar to Google directly. However, it does allow you to sync with certain other calendar applications, such as Mac OSX's built-in iCal program. This creates a workaround if you want to use your Google Calendar through Outlook for Mac because iCal can sync to Google.
Yeah it works, but it is utter crap and deployed in typical MS fashion, half a$$ed. You cannot set a default category in Outlook, so everything goes to 'No Category' which is fine, until you try and rename it or create a category, then it creates a second or third, etc calendar in iCal, once for each category, which would be okay except you cannot have a default, so each and every event must be thought out before you enter it.

Also, forget about MM, if you have a calendar on MM it will not sync, what will happen is all your Outlook calendars will go to MM as separate calendars, but any events on MM will not sync over to Outlook.

ICalDAV I'm enjoying more than I expected I use Entourage (I have MS Office 2011 but bought the Home edition as I didn't want to go to Outlook until iCal and Calendar synced). Since sync with iCal goes away anyway May 5th, I upgraded to iCalDAV ahead of time to be sure I didn't lose sync with my iPhone and iPad2.
So my Calendar in Entourage is now empty and I'm adapting fine. I actually like much of it. The upgraded version is way better than the original iCal; I suspect Lion may upgrade the desktop iCal to look more like the upgraded one on MM and on the iPad. I miss the Entourage Calendar a bit, and haven't adapted to having different calendars to get the different colors for different categories. For the moment, Contacts still sync.
I don't think they will after May 5th since sync services will not longer work - so I'll have to adapt to manually updating Entourage. I can't imagine going to mail as I have a huge file folder system in Entourage and a history of many years both professionally and privately is indispensable.
