    What a disaster! after installing the two patches listed, Outlook hung up trying to load the 3 stored profiles, one of which was a gmail account using Google App Synch. One of the patches apparently deleted the entire cache for email in this account and no longer having access to the gmail web account. I have lost more than a year of email history. All I wanted was to use outlook 2010 for a new office 365 email account so now have accomplished nothing and this integration still does not work.
