Google "Google Sync was designed to allow access to Google Mail, Calendar and Contacts via the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync protocol. With the recent launch of CardDAV, Google now offers similar access via IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV, making it possible to build a seamless sync experience using open protocols. Starting January 30, 2013, consumers won't be able to set up new devices using Google Sync; however, existing Google Sync connections will continue to function." Others are free to implement the open protocols.

RE[9]: well good to hear

Member since:

actually the answer still is "it doesn't support any form of open standard mail communication", apart from pop apparently. I have an account and i can't find anywere the imap settings or any reference to it actually.

The help article you've mentioned is not for hotmail or but for outlook web apps and " Applies to: Office 365 for professionals and small businesses, Office 365 for enterprises, Microsoft Exchange, Live@edu" only!

MS stills tries to stop users form using other services by hindering their own offerings with their proprietary crap. amazing how that has turned against them...
