Microsoft Microsoft has just responded to Google's move regarding Exchange ActiveSync. Sadly, instead of addressing the very real problems consumers are about to face, Microsoft starts talking about switching to Outlook.com.

I know it is traditional for microsofties to equate "vapor/vague promise" with "shipping product/feature." But come on...

I hate to repeat myself; microsoft haven't provided a time table or any sort of corporate commitment for IMAP support. Furthermore their POP support is flaky and its use is discouraged explicitly (in the actual meaning of the word). And there is ZERO support for DAV suite, unless you use 3rd party plugins. So if my mail user experience depends on protocols that are not proprietary to microsoft, I'm basically shit out of luck with outlook.com. Which flies directly in the face of your narrative.


PS. You keep using that term "the fact of the matter" which does not mean what you want it to mean: "your personal opinion on the matter."
