I use CompanionLink (companionlink.com) to sync Outlook to my iPhone.

Companionlink has specific versions for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and others. I suspect you could use Android.

I have been using Companionlink successfully for about 2 years and it works well.

You need a third party application or service to sync your outlook data with your S4. The problem is that your contacts are stored on your computer and not in the cloud. So the contacts, stored locally in your outlook data file, are not accessible wirelessly with your phone. To bridge this gap you could use the solution posted by John Hurst, or you could create a paid Google Apps account, download an Outlook plug-in to sync between the Outlook on your computer (email, contacts etc.) and Google Apps. Then Google Apps will sync with your phone.

Another way would be to upgrade your Office solution to the cloud based Office 365 and then you can sync between Outlook and your phone without a third party solution.

There are many third party solutions out there, just google it and you will find something that suits you well.

Best of luck,
Jon

CompanionLink will do what you need (it is a third party app however).
