Outlook.com supports IMAP – now

Outlook_com-logoThe 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

Encryption: TLS

Check out the Reddit AMA here. It’s pretty cool.
