Microsoft rolled out a revamped, and much better Hotmail a few weeks ago, under the new brand name Outlook.com. So far, the user response is good, and more and more users are switching to Outlook.com. However, the new Outlook.com hasn’t been great with IMAP and Mac client support.

IMAP wasn’t supported even in the traditional Hotmail and so, it is quite natural that Microsoft decided to omit it when moving from Hotmail to Outlook.com. However, a lot of users have demanded the inclusion of the support in the past, and demands are still valid.

Though Outlook doesn’t support IMAP yet, one of the team members of the Outlook.com has now hinted that eventually, IMAP support may be added to the email client. According to this Outlook representative, “I expect we’ll support IMAP for Outlook sometime down the line.”

Another problem with the new Outlook is that it’s client for Mac isn’t good enough. Mac users, who use Hotmail and Outlook.com, are forced to make use of POP3 or the web if they wish to access their email accounts. On the other hand, Windows users are more fortunate in that they are able to do so through a dedicated Windows Live Mail client.

The representative didn’t say whether or not we can expect a better client for Mac users anytime soon, but the Outlook.com team has admitted the deficiency.
