Can't you check what you need from the webclient? After all at least 
your username and password should be the same no matter if you access 
through the web interface or IMAP...

Yes, a Windows build for ARM64 processors. I've recently done the port 
for FPC for that. :)
Well, whether you have to buy a copy I can't answer with finality yet, 
but you can download the necessary files from Microsoft (no matter the 
architecture) and at least the "nag screen" that it isn't licensed 
hasn't appeared yet. So in the worst case you'll simply have to 
reinstall it every few months to keep using the evaluation version...
