OmniFocus and Outlook for Parallels Windows 7 Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Ok. Looked all around, maybe I missed it... Does OF work with Outlook 2010 Windows 7 using Parallels?
  • Does shortcuts send to Inbox/Quick Entry?
  • What are the downsides?
  • Why would I do this :)

Thanks all - btw... love GTD and OF as well as the forum here
 
I'm guessing that Outlook for the Mac is a non-option for you?

I don't use Outlook for Mac but I thought reviews said it was better than the Mac-specific Microsoft Enoutrage?
 
Outlook 2011 works with Exchange Web Services, which is only available on Exchange 2007 and up.
 
I came up with a way to send Outlook 2010 for Windows emails to the Omnifocus inbox. Pressing Alt+2 in Outlook causes the currently selected email(s) to be sent to the Omnifocus inbox, with the email subject as the task title and the email attached to task. Double clicking the email attachment in Omnifocus opens it in Outlook 2010 (via Parallels). See here (you have to copy/paste the link to your address bar - I am not able to post a link):
