Microsoft will stop support for basic authentication in Office 365 starting October 1, 2022. Uhm, that’s a week from the time of writing. That sounds scary, but Microsoft is already stopping basic authentication for tenants for quite some time, so chances are that it is already turned off for your organization.
As an Exchange admin you could not have missed it – The Microsoft Exchange Conference 2022. I have always been a big fan of the smaller, dedicated Microsoft conferences since it gives you the ability to learn more in-depth about the product and interact with peers and the Microsoft product group. Because of the pandemic all in-person events were cancelled, but it seems in-person events are getting back slowly. Unfortunately, MEC was still a virtual event.
By now you must be aware that Microsoft will turn off basic authentication in Office 365 later this year and that will hit Exchange Online severely. It’s not a big deal when it comes to mail clients or the administrator console (EAC), but automation using PowerShell scripts will be impacted and I recently ran into such an issue.
