To sync Android to Outlook, I highly recommend an Android manager: Wondershare MobileGo for Android. This program empowers you to transfer contacts on your Android phone to Outlook Express and Outlook 2003/2007/2010 easily and effortlessly.
Note: This program lets you export Outlook contacts to Android phone too.
