Power Toys for Outlook While providing a powerful e-mail client solution, some features are still missing, such as Gmail Push Notification, auto-BCC and exporting Outlook contact, calendar and task into standard importable files. Power Toys for Outlook makes up all above features that Outlook 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019 do not have.

Exporting Outlook contact/calendar/task into vcs and ics files in ways that Outlook cannot do such as bulk export into one single vcs and ics file as well as export of multiple entries all at once.

GGNotify unleashes Gmail Push e-mail notification on Outlook – Get reminded when new messages come in.

Outlook checks e-mail messages based on periodically checking with Gmail server unlike Gmail service pushing new mail arrival notification on Android and iOS devices. Now, GGNotify provides such push-mail feature that makes your day easier.

Auto BCC enables Outlook to send Blind Carbon Copy to a list of recipients conditionally.

With Outlook’s built-in Rules feature, only sending Carbon Copy is available. VBA macro is an alternative without an Outlook add-in, but it is not for users who know nothing about coding. ABCC sends BCC messages that contain certain keywords from filter list.

Export Outlook contacts to vCard (.vcf) and Excel in various ways.

Though Outlook enables you to export contacts into CSV or PST files, there are issues and the tool does not work well. Outlook Contact Export (OCX) exports multiple contacts into one single .vcf file, save multiple contacts files all at once, and exports contacts into one Excel file.

Export Outlook calendar to iCalendar (.ics) and Excel in various ways.

Exporting to .ics files in Unicode (UTF-8) format is a feature from Outlook Appointment Export (OAX). This is what Outlook is not capable of. Yet, OAX exported files are following Olson Time Zone format, which is globally recognized and used by most calendar services, such as Google Calendar.

Export Outlook tasks to iCAL (.ics) and Excel in various ways.

Outlook Task Export (OTX) exports tasks into useful Excel file format of .xlsx since it is easier and more organized to manage and sort fields under spreadsheet. Also, it is a handy file format for backup and data exchange purposes due to its widely supported file format nature.

Tired of exporting Outlook contact and calendar one at a time?

Sometimes, we need to export Outlook contact and calendar entries and import them into a database application. It will take too much time and effort if exporting hundreds of entries one at a time. OCX, OAX and OTX can handle this situation by exporting all of them into one single .vcf or .ics file.
