“One of the pleasures of reading old letters is the knowledge that they need no answer” Lord Byron
Here at PPL I use Microsoft Outlook but when I go anywhere else I use Gmail for both their email and calendar. I really find it useful to have dates for my classes in both places. The problem is that I had to keep doing double duty by scheduling in both Outlook and Gmail Calendars to keep them both up to date. I would forget here or there and screw up along the line but finally there is a nice answer. Gmail came out with a nice little add on to your Outlook program. It is an automatic syncing program and it works perfectly. Just follow the instructions and install it, then open Outlook and it does the rest. You can set it so it will sync one way or both ways from outlook to Google or just going back and forth. Also you decide how often the link up takes place. If you like both calendar systems and are not willing to give one up yet then give this a try.
