Enable Modern Authentication for Microsoft Office 365
In 2019 Microsoft announced that sometime in 2021 they would be retiring Basic Authentication for legacy protocols (including but not limited to, SMTP, POP, IMAP, ActiveSync Basic, MAPI Basic). This was postponed during the height of the pandemic. It appears they are reactivating those efforts.
This will become a blocker for those of us currently using 0365 for imap integration unless Hubsport provides Modern Authentication as well.
Our use case is that:
Our company utilizes O365 for corporate email
Company policy does not permit marketing emails to be sent outbound from our corporate email server
We currently leverage a third party email marketing platform (Mailgun) for outbound email via SMTP
Inbound responses are forwarded from the provider to a Corporate mailbox
Hubspot currently connects to, and tracks responses, via Basic Authentication to O365
