Re: 3.12 features: better integration with Facebook and Windows Live

A warning about's IMAP support.  It's a bare-boned implementation of IMAP 4 with no support for IDLE or UIDPLUS.  In addition, I discovered (and reported) that the EXPUNGE command will freeze all connections for that account 10s - 15s.  It's not pretty at the moment.

Those are the protocols they've *added* to support mobile access, AFAICT. But they *already* supported EWS natively, and that is the protocol they support best.
All evidence I've seen suggests only paid Office 365 accounts support Exchange Web Services, not free accounts. Further, even if had an EWS interface it would also need to support OAuth 2.0 authentication to properly integrate with existing "Windows Live" accounts in GOA. The newly-added IMAP/SMTP interfaces *do* support OAuth 2.0, which allows us to easily tack mail support on to existing "Windows Live" accounts in GOA. If at some point does grow EWS + OAuth 2.0 support, E-D-S could easily switch over. But as far as I know it does not currently support either.
