Well, who would have thought? News of Hotmail’s death for mail.app users is exaggerated.
Microsoft has relented and deferred the transition from WebDAV to its own DeltaSync standard. This means that Mail.app users with HTTPMail and MacFreePOPs plugins won’t be cut off on 30 June after all.
After listening to customer feedback from the original accouncement, Microsoft told its users “it became clear that you needed additional time to evaluate alternative solutions”.
Still, this only postpones the executioner’s axe. Don’t fritter away all the extra time Microsoft has given you in making a decision.
With apologies for any distress.
