  1. Salesforce App for Outlook is great for Office 365 users. However, it unfortunately doesn’t support native Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013. Nor does it support IMAP or POP3 which Salesforce users have been recently frustrated with. I suggest taking a look at ContactMonkey. It not only let’s you view a person’s Salesforce record like Salesforce App for Outlook, but it also let’s you edit their record right within the Outlook inbox. It also logs outbound and inbound emails into Salesforce including custom objects.
