Import Google & AOL Calendar In Outlook 2010

Managing multiple IMAP accounts in Outlook is a cinch, but lacks direct linking/syncing other IMAP account items; calendars, to-do list, etc. Organizing calendar items in multiple accounts exclusively confounds big-time, thus, it is better to import all the calendar items from multiple email accounts  under one hood.

Exporting Google Calendar

Open Google calendar, from left side bar, under My calendars, click Settings.

    This worked with no issues. Thank you

    This doesn’t work if an event has been updated. Outlook doesn’t conform to the standards needed to handle updated events.

    Awesome! Very simple and clear – thanks a bundle

  • Debi

    Thank you SO much!  This was excellent!!!!!  I tried several other things and couldn’t do it, but this was the best!  The only additional thing I had to do was to “unzip” my gmail calendar, as it automatically saved as a .zip file and when I tried to import it, it wouldn’t work.  Overall, I am very grateful!!!

    Excellent instructions, though I should have read the message below about unzipping the file first as I had to go back and figure that out.

    How do I now get rid of all the duplicate entries from my Google calendar?
