Add back support for any IMAP Account
As of the June 8, 2020 release you only support Microsoft and Google mail accounts. Seriously? Please add back support for any standard IMAP account. This change makes this Mac version pretty much useless if you don't have one of those mail accounts.
This worries me for Microsoft's future. First you are starting to direct inject emails... now your dropping email standards.
If this continues Google map look like a better email platform!

Removing support for IMAP accounts - the de facto standard for email today - is unconscionable. It will render Outlook useless for my family and my company, forcing us to abandon it. If we have to drop Outlook, we will likely drop our Enterprise Office 365 subscription as well, and look for something else that will handle all of our IMAP accounts and supports open document standards. Please reconsider this potentially disastrous mistake.
Need support of POP in "All Accounts", thanks.

Agree. I was hit with this by surprise on Monday morning and had to restore an older build from my Time Machine backup. Terrible experience when things like this happen!
It not even works with Microsoft Exchange accounts, please revert this change
This change - without warning - is absolutely unacceptable. IMAP support is required of any full-fledged email application, but to remove a standard, widely-used, working and fully implemented feature without notification is an obnoxious move.

I agree. First I was greeted with the warning that I had to switch back to continue using my iCloud email on my personal Mac. This morning I was greeted with the notice that I could no longer use my work email (exchange but not Office 365) with the new Outlook on my work laptop. Why would you remove features on a new build instead of adding them? It makes no sense.
I totally agree, this is awful - so far the new outlook has been great, but now I have to step back.
Please add back IMAP for the New Outlook, otherwise it's basically useless for a number of users with multiple email accounts!
This is a joke? virginmedia emails aren't even supported and they seem to be gmail rebranded. Even W10 version supports IMAP accounts.

I have used Outlook for years. Why is the New Outlook not available for my email? I have to return to Outlook for all my past records and how long will this last?

New outlook pretty useless for my dailey work now.
I have the same problem.
2 exchange mail and 1 icloud adress.
I go back on previous version :(
Crazy to only support Microsoft and Google mail accounts. New Outlook was working properly with IMAP and POP account till now.
Google mail user do not even need Outlook, then can just use the web interface.
If no change to this policy, you will lose most of of users. Also we will soon be kicked out of Outlook as the old one will lose development and support.
I only use POP accounts as I want the emails to be on my device (and its backup), not in the cloud. I have all my emails since 1997 (minus spams, adverts, ...). Could never keep a long history using cloud based service +cost and time to search a huge email database.
We trusted MS to support us and you developed the software against us.
Yes, absolutely awful if this is a permanent feature (and not just a temporary beta problem)

Indeed pretty useless without imap support. Forced to go back to previous version
