I'm dealing with an organization that has outhoused e-mail to outlook.com. Not surprisingly this site doesn't work with Firefox 3.6 and Ubuntu. I can log in to the account using Opera, but I have to tell Opera to identify itself as IE. There is no e-mail forwarding.
I understand outsourcing, and I understand an organization wanting to move this out of the local IT shop (though forcing people to get an account with Microsoft seems an egregious privacy violation). However, I don't understand why an organization would pick such a piss-poor provider.
