Microsoft Outlook 365 (Modern Auth) Summary

The following article contains important steps for the security update from Microsoft, that goes into effect on 10/01/2022. If your organization uses Office 365 to send emails in AviontéBOLD, the following steps need to be completed in order to comply with Microsoft’s Modern Authentication process.  


Note: Microsoft has been implementing a new authorization process (Modern Auth) requiring your attention. While they have been slowly rolling out this required functionality to their customers, Microsoft has recently announced that ALL customers will be transitioned by December 31, 2022.

If you and your organization have not yet complied with their changes, you will want to do so before the end of the year.

Failure to comply will result in your inability to send Microsoft emails through the BOLD platform.
