Yesterday, Apple announced on its MobileMe news blog that their upcoming MobileMe calendar web application can work with Microsoft’s Outlook. Users will be able to view their MobileMe calendars in Outlook as well as edit them. The process is all synced up, so any calendar changes you make will appear on the web and in Outlook, but not instantly as push updates are not supported at this time. This new feature is not only for standard Outlook users, but works for those connected to exchange server accounts, but you won’t be able to do anything if you’re connected to a proxy server.
To get the process working, you will need to download and install the free MobileMe Control Panel v1.6.1 for Windows. Additionally, Apple has created a support website with in depth instructions on how to set this up. The website also has support for other MobileMe features and is a great bookmark to keep around.
