The Outlook.com team just announced IMAP support. Personally I use EAS for my syncing purposes, but I know my wife will be happy that she can get Outlook.com in her OSX mail app. CalDAV and CardDAV are not supported yet, but I have a feeling it’s coming eventually though.
The settings are:
- Incoming IMAP mail server: imap-mail.outlook.com
- Incoming IMAP mail server port: 993
- Encryption: SSL
- Outgoing SMTP mail server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
- Outgoing SMTP mail server port: 587
Check out the Reddit AMA here. It’s pretty cool.
