Outlook.com now supports IMAP and OAuth

Outlook.com now supports IMAP and OAuth

Microsoft is opening its doors to other email services. Announcing the good news on its Outlook blog, Microsoft details the "immediate availability" of IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) and OAuth (open standard for authorization) for Outlook.com.

Yes, dear folks. Those who are none-Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) users, say Mac Mail and Thunderbird users for example, can join the fun. Explaining Microsoft's decision to support IMAP, the company's Steve Kafka says that there are devices and apps that don't support EAS. "We heard your feedback loud and clear that this was important," writes Kafka.

For developers, this also means better opportunities to create third-party services that will increase the value of Outlook.

Microsoft's already worked this part by announcing the first batch of services that are now integrated into Outlook.com. The list includes popular trip planner, TripIt, and shopping app, Sift. Joining the batch are Slice, motley*bunch, Unroll.me, Context.IO, and OtherInbox.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
