I tried to like the Mac Office 2011’s Outlook Calendar since Microsoft (finally) added a calendar sync feature with this week’s SP1 update.

After downloading and applying Mac Office 2011 Service Pack 1 (SP1), I turned on calendar sync in Tools > Sync Services.

I turned it off after an hour.


  1. Syncing created many, many duplicate calendar items for my all-day and recurring events. What a mess!
  2. Its calendar design is really garish! Bold white type reversed out of solid color backgrounds. Ugly!
