InboxEx requires .Net 4 from Microsoft to be installed before you can install InboxEx.
In case InboxEx installer fails to re-direct you to .Net 4 download site, here is the link:
It is safe to have .Net 4 to be on your computer,
This is a short note to users who use InboxEx to sync Outlook with Google Calendar. Even you configured your outlook to receive emails from Google account on Outlook, you still need to configure the Google account you want to sync with from InboxEx configuration dialog window.
We just released an update with Google App Domain support.
So if your company use Google App Domain, you can use Outlook with your App Domain calendar very much like Exchange server calendar.
Please be noted that even you configured your Google App Domain Email to receive emails on Outlook, you still need to configure your App Domain Email address with InboxEx configuration.
This update also has some nice enhancements.
We have received different reports from users with installation problems. If you run into installation issues, PLEASE PLEASE let us know. We’d appreciate any information on failed installations. We suspected that anti-virus software might be the top reason that prevents InboxEx from being installed.
We’d really appreciate it if you let us know of any installation issues.
Many users contacted us about Google App Domain support in InboxEx. The current release doesn’t support Google App Domain accounts yet. We are currently working on it and the feature should be available in next release.
With Google App Domain support, you can use Outlook directly with your App Domain account, which is very close to using Google as Exchange server.
Also, I’d like to point out that InboxEx Google Calendar Sync is not “Only” Calendar Sync, it goes one step further than any other Google Calendar sync applications. InboxEx automatically resolves your contacts’ Google addresses if your contacts are also InboxEx users. What does it mean? It means even you share your calendar with a contact via a non-Google address, InboxEx will figure out that person’s Google address for you to make the sharing work automatically, provided that your contact is also an InboxEx User.
For Example Alex and Kevin work for 2 companies with email addresses email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. When Alex receives an email from Kevin@compnay-b.com, Alex clicks “Share my calendar with Kevin” from InboxEx, InboxEx detects that email@example.com is not a Google address, then InboxEx tries to resolve Kevin’s Google address by contacting InboxEx service. If Kevin is also an InboxEx user with a Google address configured, InboxEx automatically maps Alex’s sharing to kevin’s Google address.
All this happens at background. It may sound a bit confusing for some users, but you really don’t have to know what is going on at the background. All you know is that if you share your calendar availability to your contacts who happen to be InboxEx users, your sharing will go through if the other parties are also InboxEx users with Google address configured.
We are glad that many actually found InboxEx useful.
We’d appreciate feedback from early adapters to improve our product.
Thanks to Usman, we got an unexpected early coverage.
The screenshots would look much better with real email configurations and disabling of the security warning.:-)
We are very pleased to announce our first public release of InboxEx for Microsoft Outlook.

Your email inbox is your closest private social network and today’s web centric social network is too open and too public. We believe there is middle ground between your private inbox social network and public social network such as Facebook. We are building software infrastructure to bridge the millions of private email social network to form a massive social network without sacrificing privacy.
