Basic Authentication Ending for Exchange

Microsoft Outlines Plan to End Basic Authentication in Exchange Online

Support will end on Oct. 13, 2020, for these protocols: Exchange ActiveSync, Post Office Protocol (POP) and Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP). Microsoft will also drop support for Remote PowerShell when used with the Exchange Online service. In addition, Basic Authentication in Exchange Web Services will end on that same date.

We understand changes like this may cause some inconvenience, but we are confident it will enable more secure experiences for our customers.” – Microsoft
