From the help docs here:

First, double click on the SFO system tray icon (as explained above) to open the actual error message with the details. If the error message says "Required fields are missing: [LastName]" then follow the steps below to resolve the issue.

1- You can click on the contact name on the SFO error screen (it is in a form of hyperlink that you can click on to open the contact in Outlook) to open the contact's detail page 2- Click on Full name
3- The “Check Full Name" windows will open 4- Update the Last name as it is a mandatory field in Salesforce. If your contact does not have a Last Name or you are syncing a company as a contact, or for any reasons you do not have a Last name you can use a dot "." or comma "," or such to populate the Last Name field 5- Click OK and then click on Save & Close

You may have to repeat steps 1-5 if you have more than contact with missing Last Name

The screen shot below is from Outlook 2007 but the steps are the same for other versions of Outlook User-added image

6- Click on Retry on the SFO error screen or if you have already closed it, right click on SFO system tray icon and click on Sync | Sync Now

7- Sync should complete successfully and you should not see that error message again
