http://www.roundcube.net/ shows that it is an IMAP client. Outlook also can act as an IMAP client. So the answer is "yes, just configure the account and you're done".

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
