NOTE: Microsoft has published a support article with the following information: "With OS X Mountain Lion, Apple no longer maintains active support for Sync Services. You might experience issues...". In our tests, we have seen no issues syncing between Outlook for Mac 2011 and the Apple Contact and Calendar apps in Apple's latest OS releases, OS X 10.7.5 (Lion) and OS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion). If you are experiencing issues with the Outlook 2011 and Apple apps (Contacts/Address Book, Calendar/iCal, Reminders) sync not working, try the following:

1. Log In/Out of your Mac user account

2. You may have the sync configured to sync with the incorrect or a removed Outlook "identity". Reset Outlook Sync Services to fix the issue.
