Outlook is the client (kind-of MUA). The server is called Exchange [1],
which, if the admins are friendly, can support IMAP (well, some sort
of Microsoft bastardized IMAP, but which works reasonably).

But I've heard that Microsoft is softly trying to push their clients
off IMAP (which makes sense, since, as they are losing grip with their
(non-)operating system offers, they are trying to re-gain it with their
all-in-one enterprise lock-in offers aka Office 356.


[1] I always understood that name as an incitation, as in "Exchange
   this server, please"
