Potential Issues
I’ve only just started testing, but I’m struggling to upload a folder full of emails into a SharePoint library.  It creates the library in the outlook tree view, but when you sync, the folder disappears completely without being populated into your SharePoint Library.  The bad news is the folder appears lost forever, including its content.
