Outlook.com now supports IMAP

Good news for IMAP lovers. Microsoft’s newly online cloud mail service, Outlook.com now has IMAP support.

In a blog post published by Steve Kafka, the IMAP and OAuth support is available immediately.

From the blog:

“We're happy to announce the immediate availability of IMAP (and OAuth) for Outlook.com. Outlook.com already supports the industry's best email connectivity with Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), which is available on the majority of smartphones and tablets, including Windows Phone, iOS, and Android devices, as well as the Windows 8 Mail app and Outlook 2013. With today's announcement, we now have a richer email experience across devices and apps, including those not using EAS, such as Mac Mail and Thunderbird on a Mac.”
