IMAP is an important protocol for many of Outlook's customers, and we've heard from many of you that Outlook's IMAP support is not at the level of quality that you expect from a product like Outlook. We heard your feedback, and this release we made a significant investment in IMAP.

Here's what you'll see with IMAP in Outlook 2013:

Syncing/sending messages is done in the background, so you no longer have to wait for sync to complete in order to use Outlook. General comments about Outlook's performance when using IMAP was the top issue we heard from all of you, and we believe this change will improve the experience quite a bit.
New mail notifications are now supported. This was the second most common request we heard.
Outlook now recognizes special folders in your mailbox like Trash (in techspeak, the IMAP extension XLIST is now supported)
You can choose how much mail to sync and keep locally by telling Outlook to only sync mail that is newer than a certain number

If you host email for your domain at FastMail, but host the DNS for your domain at an external DNS provider, we recommend you login to your DNS provider and change the two MX records for your domain from in[12] to in[12] i.e. replace the first dot (‘.’) with a dash (‘-’)

The question of service provider neutrality is central to every debate about internet policy. From PayPal cutting off Wikileaks to Twitter pushing back against the feds to the new Righthaven's "spineful" hosting, the responsibility of companies to neutrally protect their customers is a contentious topic.

New Scientist has an interview with Matthew Prince, the CEO of CloudFlare, a network security/performance service for websites. One of their recent high-profile customers was LulzSec, the controversial hacker group that executed a string of takedowns and data breaches last year, but whose own website proved impervious to constant hacking attempts because of CloudFlare. Prince talks about their decision to treat LulzSec the same as any other client:

Internally, we had a debate about the right thing to do. It's important to note that because of the way CloudFlare works, no hacking activity was launched from our network – it was simply a matter of publishing information. So hacking

in the comments: While all that's nice, I would rather you have spent the time:

1) Fixing the Windows Live Mail client so we can use HTTPS all the time with it.

2) Adding IMAP support so we could use any email client we prefer.

Lower priority but niceites:

3) Ability to share a contact list (if you can share a calendar, why can't you share a contact list?).

4) Add tasks and notes (similar to Outlook).

The first two items have been asked for repeatedly but Microsoft seemingly has either sidestepped or ignored these requests. As a result, you'll continue to lose users (including myself) to Gmail who already provide both those features.

There's been lots of recent news coverage about's new Gigabit Fiber-to-the-Home roll-out, and in that thread I was been asked to do an AMA here.

As a 17 year industry veteran, I've seen a lot of change, but I remain committed to the concept of alternative competitive broadband access services.

From our Fusion product to the new Fiber roll-out, we're breaking new ground in broadband access, an area long dismissed, but of key importance. Competitive Internet broadband access has challenges in the US, but we have demonstrated that it's possible to innovate.

Ask me anything!
