If you’re using Outlook 2013 RT in your Surface or any Windows RT 8.1 device there are a few things you want to know. For example, the popular mail client can connect to Exchange Server 2013, 2010, or 2007 only if Autodiscover service is configured. The bad news, though, is that Outlook 2013 RT doesn’t support the following features in Exchange:

Online Archive or Personal Archive mailboxes Applying Messaging Records Management (MRM) retention policies Site Mailboxes Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policy tips

Furthermore you cannot:

Add fax accounts. Configure Group Policy. Use Junk settings when connected to IMAP, POP3, or Outlook.com. Display Outlook Contact Card on active link to users’ SharePoint My Site pages. But you can connect to and synchronize with SharePoint lists. Integrate Lync with Outlook 2013 RT. Set IRM on new email messages. Run add-ins, macros, or custom programs created by anyone.
