Well, as luck would have it, after all this exploring of different options for syncing my Droid with my Outlook Calendar and Contacts, it turns out that the program I had been using for the last year or more, and that I LOVED, now does sync with Outlook 2013!!!! I was so excited! This is the most seamless app for syncing Outlook calendar/contacts that I have ever used! I highly recommend it for anyone looking for something like this.
And best of all - it is FREE!!!!!

True, but this is a different circumstance than the OP was talking about... In his case he was using Outlook as a stand-alone client to access his personal email, maintain contacts, calendar events, etc, and not connecting to a corporate/hosted Exchange server as 99% of companies do. In that case none of this would be an issue, as Android (or iOS/BB/Symbian/WinMo/etc) all have provisions for syncing with all the required information with an Exchange server.

And my mail, calendar, contacts, tasks, and everything else are all synced to my iPad and Rezound, and a handful of other devices that I have setup as testing mode at the moment.
