Old news. And MS declared war, not Google. Google is/will/maybe will defend itself.

I don't see it as an attack at all. I think Google evaluated the service and noticed not many non-paying customers use it, so they dropped it for free users. You can still get it if you pay.

This, but hey, wars, slams and all that get more clicks, so that's what the news spin it as.

Also being anti-Google is kind of hip now...
Guess the Apple-hate is being split up and shared amongst Apple and Google now. :D

I wonder who's next to join the club of the hated giants?

WP doesn't support imap ? :s

In all fairness, Gmail's 'IMAP' is barely even IMAP. The best IMAP client in the world couldn't save that turd of an experience.

I don't see the problem, Gmail supports POP and IMAP. If you're using an e-mail client that doesn't support these basic and common protocols, you need to use a different e-mail client.

POINTLESS POST:

In New Zealand, we have a channel that shows everything one hour ago from its parent channel, so say the news is on at 6pm, well this channel will show the same news boardcast at 7pm. OP makes me feel im watching this channel.

This is about syncing calendar & contacts, not email.
