100% agree! Apparently the future is online subscriptions to everything! Microsoft and other companies are attempting to establish perpetual income from their products by doing away with the ONE TIME purchases! It might work but then again I believe they will see massive amounts of resistance which eventually end up with decreases in sales.Don't want to PAY to READ MY EMAIL.

I've tried eM Client and it works well. Two things I see on the eM pages
Free client does not support more than 2 accounts.
Supports all standard protocols
It supports virtually all conceivable email technologies (POP3, SMTP, IMAP, EWS, AirSync).
I won't be able to use the free version since I have more than two eMail accounts (if eMail accounts are what they mean)
I'd need to do more research on the protocols, EWS / EAS
Choosing between Exchange ActiveSync and EWS
Complaints asside, MS has alerted users of the change and I applaud that.
While the article might be a bit short on technical details, it does provide users with options
- and that's a fair thing to do.
If that's true, WLM would partially work with Outlook accounts, and for those who only wanted to sync emails, it might be good enough. This is all just speculation of course.
Today I signed out of WLM 2012 for the heck of it. The calendar and contacts were not available. That being said, it will receive emails, but you would need your contacts to send emails. If you plan to keep WLM 2012 be sure to export your contacts. Then you would be able to import them back if Microsoft does not load them.
