As of today, the new main version 6 for SimpleSYN Standard and Business is available for download.
Version 6 supports Windows 11 and Outlook 2021 and has been extensively improved and optimized in many areas. In addition, we have given version 6 some new functions and upgraded the business version with some extras. To improve working on a shared calendar in everyday office life, reminders or categories can now be excluded from synchronization. The reading status of e-mails can now also be set to a specified value during synchronization.
Many improvements (e.g. improved connection establishment, revision of the Outlook add-in, easier selection of folders in the synchronization settings) and optimizations complete the upgrade..
