Why did MS bother
Apple is adding connectivity to exchange servers in Mail.app on snow leopard (coming out any day now). One of the main sellers of the (expensive) business licenses for Office:mac is the IT departments that are incompetent enough not to be able to enable the imap protocol on their exchange servers and hence block Mail.app from accessing corporate email.
That argument will go away in a few weeks time ... So the timing of this forward looking statement of Microsoft in that context sounds a lot different from any real plan or promise. It's marketing as usual.
