logo-windows-phone-8

This is the final part of the email campaigns on Windows Phone series and this time I look at how Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) mailboxes behave within Outlook Mobile on Windows Phone. The EAS protocol is what powers Exchange/Office 365 mailboxes on many mobile devices including Windows Phone and is something that is common in the enterprise world.

I decided to purchase a single Office 365 Mailbox recently to see what exactly Office 365 (OWA) is doing to email in terms of the output after going through the pre-processor, after seeing some pretty weird results from inbox inspection test from Office 365. Turns out after looking into things, I’ve come to the conclusion that the Office 365 OWA app is worse than Outlook 2007 – 2013 for standards support. Find out about the quirks with this email client below.
