Since I’ve become an Outlook insider I’ve found no news worthy of mentioning. They were either disabling features or doing things most users don’t care about.
This day, however, I bring great news. Outlook.com has finally matured into a real mail service and now supports IMAP – this means you can use your favorite mail client like Thunderbird or Outlook or K9 Mail to connect and keep your messages synchronized across multiple devices.
These are the settings required to connect to Outlook.com IMAP:
- Server: imap-mail.outlook.com
- Server port: 993
- Encryption: SSL
- Server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
- Server port: 587
- Encryption: TLS
With this newest offering Outlook.com becomes a true player in the webmail game.
