Microsoft Outlook comes to Android, iOS: MS email now a bit less painful on mobile

Surely the only people with any interest in this will be enterprises deeply wedded to Exchange.

But their existing MDM will configure the built-in Mail, Contacts and Calendar apps. They won't be able to use this Outlook connection to remotely enforce security policies or remotely wipe/lock devices through Exchange either. Outlook will be sandboxed like any other app.

Baffling waste of engineering effort just to keep marketing happy.
