IMAP support (in my experience) is pretty bad in Outlook - it still has
to have PST files on the local machine to house it's special directories
and is VERY slow in comparison to more... open alternatives (Mozilla
Thunderbird for me).

I think this is partly because it insists on downloading attachments
before displaying a message, but mostly because (inexplicably) it
operates really slowly over the network (~100kb/s over 100Mb switched).
