there is your answer...mostly because of the issue of creating emails offline then trying to sync sent items with your desktop email client. If it's all done via IMAP it works easily with apps like Outlook.
Plus by limiting to only the Big Three (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail?Live) then what is a person with their own mail server going to do if company mail cannot exist outside the company's mail server?
IMAP seems the most universally and reasonable solution here.
