@JonYoder compatibility is why gmail was easy to adopt and hard to give up. without a bridge, you force people to go back.
@travisfw Compatibility was never the goal. IMAP, POP3, and SMTP are the reason we're in this mess in the first place. I'm also not targeting Gmail. I'm aiming squarely at Exchange.
@travisfw More importantly, if you maintain compatibility, you lose most or all of the protections the platform was designed to provide. I plan to make good migration tools, though
