What is preventing it from working for you?
The Mail feature already supports the following:
Exchange and Outlook Web App
And other POP or IMAP based e-mail services.
I did not mean that only works for you; I meant "Only" as the solely option to sync.
What I would like is "Options" to sync in the cloud and/or with a desktop.
One of the reason of "Windows" success was the fact that the OS was open and flexible; it seems to me that a lot of people that right now are trashing WM were not around or conveniently forget that until the iPhone appeared WM was the King of the market; regrettably nobody at MS remembered that the reason that made WM the most succesfull mobile OS dethroning Palm was that the latter, seating in top place, stopped innovating and failed. MS did the same thing: Ballmer described the iPhone as a joke and Wm development remained stagnant.
Now MS has decided to take an applesque approach but it is not working: I buy a MS product and not an Apple one because I want openess and flexibility, simple as that.
Getting back to the "Cloud only" approach there are a lot of people who do not feel comfortable to store their data "somewhere" and other entities that are even not allowed to do it by law.
I paid to have OneNote on my desktop, why in the hell I have to go to the cloud first in order to get my new pages to the desktop? I see no reasons......
I will give you a further example: I receive a PDF attachment in the email, I am abroad in a hotel and I want to print it. Using my WM powere smartphone I copy it in a folder called "data", go to the business center of the facility, connect the phone to the local computer by USB, the desktop sees the file and print it. Why do I have to use the hotel computer to connect to my Exchange portal and print the document from there?
