Use of SMTP - Basic Authentication deprecation

Copper Contributor



Currently, we are using smtp in our application to send email with current settings


Device or Application setting Value

PortPort 587 (recommended) or port 25
Username/email address and passwordEnter the sign-in credentials of the hosted mailbox being used


I was just wondering if we can still use it even if after the "Deprecation of Basic authentication in Exchange Online" on October 1, 2022 or we should be using oAuth already?


Thanks :)

You will still be able to use it. Microsoft has backed down on their threat to turn it off on Oct 1st. Basically, Microsoft will be proactively monitoring and if they see you aren't using basic authentication, they will disable it. But if they see that you're using it, they won't.
