Microsoft recently released a blogpost about deprecating Remote PowerShell in Exchange Online. It’s a small blog, but the impact can be serious. Exchange Online PowerShell is (was) available in three different versions and I will discuss these briefly.

By now you must have heard that Microsoft is moving away from Basic Authentication and that all client authentications will move to Modern Authentication, and I've blogged about this previously.
Another thing that is happening is Microsoft moving away from TLS 1.0 and 1.1 and only allowing TLS 1.2 connections. This can have an impact on your organization too, so let’s have a look what is going to happen and why.
25 years ago, I was working for Microsoft. And one morning we received a message with the subject line “Why am I on this mailing list? Please remove me from it.” This was followed by another email saying “Me Too!”, and then another “Me Too!”, and another, and another. These were followed by multiple emails with subject line “People stop with the reply alls”. Before we knew it, our Exchange environment was brought to a standstill because of the enormous amount of email sent via this Distribution Group.
October 13, 2020, is an important date for Microsoft for a variety of reasons. On this date, Microsoft will stop support for their 2010 suite of products like Exchange 2010, SharePoint 2010, Office 2010, etc. In addition, Microsoft will stop basic authentication in Office 365 as outlined in their post Upcoming changes to Exchange Web Services (EWS) API for Office 365 and their follow-up post Basic Auth and Exchange Online – February 2020 Update.
Years ago, you moved successfully from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 and to be honest, you’re still very satisfied with it. Update rollups appear frequently and your Office 2010 still functions properly, so everybody is happy. But all good things come to an end.
