25k message limit Outlook?

Just got the phone with Godaddy after a customer who was using IMAP to fetch emails was not getting them

Godaddy says Outlook has a 25K message limit,but if I use a pop account instead of IMAP,it works.

It seems to me it's a Godaddy 25K limit (or maybe IMAP spec).

Any feedback?

I think Godaddy is full of it. Using POP3 simply moves the messages off of their server onto your computer.

Below are GoDaddy limitations:


I don't know of any Outlook IMAP limitations, however, I do know someone using Google via Outlook 2013 IMAP and has about 50,000 messages.  Below is a link from Google:


Have you considered Office 365 where you will not be having issues such as this.  Just for the record, I am not affiliated in any shape or form with Microsoft.
