But aren't you using them as IMAP? Is any of them @outlook too?
Yes all are IMAP and one of them is outlook. I'm using Thunderbird but Outlook would do the job for me as well but I can backup everything of Thunderbird but looks like it's not possible in Outlook app.

So, Outlook is Microsoft Exchange, it's like IMAP but it also syncs contacts and calendar. They don't need backup, like I said, it's all in the server as well.
Thunderbird doesn't sync contacts or calendar, it's useless and outdated... who backups emails locally in 2020?

Be eM Client never do this:

In early 2010s, Microsoft was scanning emails not for the sake of advertisements, but to "fight spam."
Also in 2017:
For Stefan Weitz, Microsoft’s (MSFT) senior director of online services, this is all a matter of “semantics.” The intent of Google’s (GOOG) “going through” email is what makes that “going through” a bad thing, compared to Microsoft’s “going through,” which is entirely benign, he said in an interview Tuesday.
source: Much like Google, Microsoft also scans your email

Those above applied for all emails providers like: Gmail, Yahoo.

As a bonus take a look on this topic and article:


It's normal to take some statistics about app, but eM client never want your email password like Microsoft.

From eM Client privacy policy:

You didn't understand my point. I can carry my Thunderbird profile around and can use it even on another PC if I want without logging into my emails again. Can't do that in Outlook. I also don't need calendar syncing.

What about contacts? How do you send emails without contacts? Only buy replying...
I don't see the point in that, just use the web outlook.com, it's easy to login and you have everything there. You can add other email accounts, like Gmail, as IMAP in outlook web, you will have everything in one lace. You can add up to 20 accounts, or if you prefer you can also forward everything from the other accounts to that one outlook account.

I wish it didn't have this limitation.
Syncing from your connected account to your Outlook.com account is one-way only. Email sent from your connected account using Outlook.com will not appear in your connected account Sent Items.

If you delete, move, or read an email from a connected account in Outlook.com, you won't see those changes when you go to your connected account.

For example, email sent from your Gmail account using Outlook.com will not appear in your Gmail Sent Items, and Gmail messages deleted in Outlook.com will not be removed from your Gmail Inbox.
