Outlook for Android and iOS are relaying all e-mail by using Microsoft servers




Outlook for Android and iOS are relaying all e-mail and attachments through Microsoft servers. Consequently, companies that have a local Exchange server in trouble because they purposely email not run through Microsoft’s servers.

Outlook for Android and iOS stores all email on Microsoft’s servers and forwards them, something that also applies to attachments. That policy is problematic for companies that have Exchange on a local server running because the messages suddenly or walk through Microsoft servers.

Outlook for mobile platforms drain the mail through Microsoft servers, because the app is based on Acompli, the mail app that Microsoft took a few months ago. Microsoft has changed the names and logos, but functionally it seems nothing has changed. Both Acompli as Outlook for Android and iOS have shown in the policy that all mail goes through Microsoft servers.

Microsoft says that the app meets internal ‘borders’ in the area of ​​privacy. “And we keep constantly working on the app will fulfill our gold standard.” Microsoft points out that Exchange administrators can block access to the app. Include De Persgroep, parent company of Tweakers, has already done.
