Hello, 

 

Just starting this conversation to see if anyone knows the answer. Let's say we change a user's 365 password and don't provide the password. Will the user still be able to access Outlook if he has app passwords setup?

Yes. App password are separate static entries separate from the primary MFA account.

You have an option to clear all user's app passwords, if that's your intention.
