Version 3.5 (Build 7110) released 11/11/2014:
  • When synchronizing Exchange Server accounts, SimpleSYN was always synchronizing internal changes which leads to a higher synchronization volume. This fix reduces the amount of unnecessary synchronization

  • Fixes a problem that SimpleSYN could sometimes stay offline after losing the internet connection
  • If the deleted objects folder was missing, SimpleSYN failed to synchronize deletions. The folder is now recreated correctly
  • The deleted objects folder cannot be synchronized manually anymore

  • NEW: The Setup now installs SimpleSYN now automatically with the correct platform e.g., if Outlook 2010 64-bit or Outlook 2013 64-bit is detected, SimpleSYN will be installed in 64-bit too. Otherwise the 32-bit version will be installed
