Feature details

Exchange Web Services online, the technology that Contact Sync as well as automated deployment of the Outlook Add-in rely on to connect to Exchange Online, will no longer offer basic authentication as of October 1, 2020. As a result, we are deprecating the fields used to set this up in this release wave.
