Against my better judgement, I downloaded the new Outlook iOS app today. I had read a review saying it was worlds better than Google's own app for managing Gmail, and since all my work email is on Google, I figured I would give it a shot.
After choosing the "Google" option in the account setup, I put in my Gmail credentials, and was immediately greeted by a message saying I should ask my email administrators to open up IMAP.
So really, it doesn't actually "support" Gmail—it just supports IMAP and calls it Gmail.
What's funny about this whole thing is that it is usually Exchange admins who are the biggest jerks about not opening IMAP access.By Pete Brown
