Microsoft has updated its Outlook email app for iOS with support for IMAP accounts.

Outlook is a free email app that helps you get more done from anywhere with one unified view of your email, calendar, contacts, and attachments. Outlook automatically surfaces your most important messages – across all your email accounts. Swipe to quickly delete, archive, or schedule messages you want to handle later. Easily view your calendar, share available times, and schedule meetings. And attach files from your email, OneDrive, or Dropbox with just a few taps.

Manage your inbox
• Outlook automatically triages your inbox for you, surfacing your most important email. Less relevant email is placed in your “Other” inbox.
• Swipe to quickly delete, archive, or schedule messages.
• Schedule emails and they will return to your inbox at a later time.

Your calendar built-in
• Switching between your email and calendar apps is a thing of the past. Outlook includes your calendar and notifies you with appointment reminders.
• Find available meeting times and share them in email or schedule a meeting.

Attachments made easy
• View and attach any file from your email, OneDrive, Dropbox, and other accounts with just a few taps.
• Send large files even if you haven’t downloaded them to your phone.

Find anything fast
• Filter your inbox to only show messages that are unread, flagged, or have attachments, with a single tap.
• Quickly find the right messages, people and files by typing just a few letters.
• Outlook shows people you communicate with most often, and lets you conveniently drill down to see all related emails, meetings and files.

What's New In This Version:
* Outlook now supports IMAP
* Support for Pin enforcement policies set by server administrators

All of the third party email apps cache your email in the "cloud". It doesn't matter which service (Mailbox, Outlook, Boxer, Google, Dispatch, CloudMagic, Apple's own Email client, etc.) you use. Once you connect your Exchange, Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, etc. email address with any of these apps, they are caching your email to improve performance.

Tell me where Apple's own email client does its caching for indexing, exactly. Caching data locally on your phone is not the same thing as caching indexable data at an unencrypted Internet location. Please tell me, MX Mail King. Since you're the king, you should know.

All and some are not the same thing. Hmmm... Touchdown is not on that list.

...and I heard from our corporate security team that we will be blocking Outlook for iOS from our Exchange Servers this morning. Nice work, MX Mail King. Thanks for punishing my attempt to help other users by making it look like I was worried about nothing. You need to think before making assertions about the security of other people's data.

Read the agreement. This program takes your company's Exchange server email and caches it in the cloud for indexing purposes. Not safe for corporate use unless your company's security dept. has specifically allowed it.
