Note: Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) is officially only supported on mobile devices. Microsoft may decide to stop supporting EAS in the desktop version of Outlook. Because Mobile Sync uses Exchange ActiveSync, it will then no longer work in Outlook for desktop. You can of course still use IMAP, to set up your account: Setting up mail in Microsoft Outlook.
