How to sync your MailSafi Calendar on your Outlook for Desktop

This is a step-by-step guide on how to connect your desktop Outlook Calendar app to your MailSafi calendar. The first step in setting up any third-party app to work with the MailSafi calendar is creating a CalDAV connection. If you haven’t already done this, click here for a guide on creating a CalDAV connection.

1. Install Outlook Synchronizer

Because Microsoft Outlook doesn’t have native support for CalDAV, you will need to download and install an add-on called

Outlook CalDAV Synchronizer. You can download it from here.

Important note: The Synchronizer add-on might not be compatible with all versions of Microsoft Outlook. It is therefore important to check the Synchronizer website for the compatibility information.

After downloading the setup program, run it and follow the installation wizard. If your Outlook is running, you'll need to relaunch it after the Synchronizer setup is finished.

When you re-launch Outlook, you'll see a new menu item on top: CalDav Synchronizer. Click on it to begin the calendar setup process.
