Add-in Resiliency

Every kind of add-in, that is affecting the performance, reliability or resiliency of Outlook, is turned off automatically by Outlook itself, so as to make it more pliant. The add-ins can be re-enabled and viewed anytime again by going to File -> View Disabled Add-ins.

IMAP Improvements

Instead of the foreground, IMAP network operations occur in the background in the all new Outlook 2013 so as soon as it Outlook opens the existing mails can be seen by the users of IMAP in their mailboxes. This is done real quickly the same as a Cashed Exchange Mode user would.
