    My latest info from Microsoft is that they will be retiring Basic IMAP access sometime soon. They seem to have committed to providing IMAP access using EWS or OAuth 2.0 security protocols. I'd really like to be able to access my Exchange mail from my Notes Client. Sooner rather than later would be good! :-)

    Are there any plans to make this happen??

    It is THAT important feature for the Traveler and IMSA/IMSMO to get rid of ML Sync and maybe Companion. This is hight demanded by any customer who is forced to move to alternate clients or connectivity profiles that exclusively need EWS. Also, almost any secured, containerised mail clients like BlackBerry Access only work with EWS. 

    I set some feature requests almost 2 years ago to IBM with only promises as response.

    Meanwhile a reasonable number of our customers turned to Exchange.  Maybe not only by this cause, but who knows? That battle was always lost at the clients frontier.

    This function need to be in the product (V11) for all clients. It is mandatory.

    This is one of the most important feature missing right now. One of the biggest reason the customers have now to leave Domino and migrating to Exchange/O365 is the lack of multiple different clients support. Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.

    In my case we have a customers from exchange to domino in 2018

    in 2019 the customers rollback to exchange for a gap from outlook client.

    the IT team would be return in Domino in 2020 but with caution...

    so now we need a EWS support before and migrate data and the users continue to use outlook and apple mail in first step../

    in second step migrate slow every user to Notes 11


    is important this feature

    I don't see any comments on here so I'd like to elaborate.  We are a growing company, and while the light on Notes/Domino may be 'cloudy' for our future, one thing we've always (ALWAYS) run into was the 'change' factor when we'd bring on users from another system to Domino.  This feature will certainly not lure new customers to the Domino fold, but it would likely help justify companies keeping their Domino back end.  The kicker here is that with the current efforts it is getting easier, there is still a long list of 'unsupported features' that come along that as an IT department with limited (support) resources, we do not introduce/offer the mechanism.
