Warning about the new Version of Microsoft Outlook for macOS

Due to current information, we would like to warn you about the new version of Microsoft Outlook for MacOS, because the option "Synchronize with Microsoft Cloud" is activated by default when setting up IMAP accounts. As with the Microsoft Outlook app for Android and iOS, this option means a redirection of access data (e.g. passwords) as well as content via the Microsoft Cloud. Apart from the data protection issues involved, sharing access data in this way is prohibited by IT usage regulations. On-prem Exchange accounts are currently not supported by the version, so only integration via IMAP is affected. In addition, it is still unclear whether the function is only enabled for an initial setup or whether it will also be adopted for IMAP accounts that have already been set up when switching to the new version of Outlook.
