Updated February 7, 2020: Changed the Action by Date to accurately reflect October 13, 2020. Beginning October 13, 2020, we will retire Basic Authentication for EWS, EAS, IMAP, POP and RPS to access Exchange Online. Note: this change does not impact SMTP AUTH. There are several actions that you and/or your users can take to avoid service disruptions on client applications, and we describe them below. If no action is taken, client applications using Basic Authentication for EWS will be retired on October 13, 2020. Any application using OAuth 2.0 to connect to these protocols, will continue to work without change or interruption.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?You have several options on how to prepare for the retirement of Basic Authentication.
- You can start updating the client applications your users are using to versions that support OAuth 2.0 today. For mobile device access, there are several email apps available that support Modern Authentication, but we recommend switching to the Outlook app for iOS and Android as we believe it provides the best overall experience for your M365 connected users. For desktop/laptop access, we encourage the use of the latest versions of Outlook for Windows and Outlook for Mac. All Outlook versions including, or newer than, Outlook 2013 fully support OAuth 2.0.
- If you have written your own code using these protocols, you will need to update your code to use OAuth 2.0 instead of Basic Authentication, you can reach out to us on stack overflow with the tag exchange-basicauth if you need some help.
- If you or your users are using a 3rd party application, which uses these protocols, you will either need to
- reach out to the 3rd party app developer who supplied this application to update it to support OAuth 2.0 authentication
- assist your users to switch to an application that’s built using OAuth 2.0.
We are in the process of building reports that will help you identify any impacted users and client applications in your organization. We will make these reports available to you in the next few months and communicate their availability via a follow-up Message center post.

The Stable release of the Google Chrome web browser (build 80, scheduled for release on February 4, 2020) features a change in how cookies are handled. Although the change is intended to discourage malicious cookie tracking, it’s also expected to severely affect many applications and services that are based on open standards.
For more information, see SameSite Updates on the Chromium Projects website.
Microsoft is committed to addressing this change in behavior in its products and services before the February 4, 2020 rollout date to ensure our customers are minimally impacted.
Exchange Online has already rolled out changes necessary to support this change and we do not anticipate any issues.
Exchange Server’s March Cumulative Updates will contain changes necessary to support this change. We will issue CU’s for Exchange Server 2016 and 2019 and we recommend upgrading to these versions to ensure compatibility. We’re investigating solutions for earlier versions of Exchange Server.
Given the date of our scheduled CU’s comes after Google Chrome’s release date of February 4th there might be some issues experienced by users.
To avoid issues, we recommend users switch to an alternate browser, or configure the site/URL used by OWA users to be excluded from the SameSite enforcement behavior in Chrome by using the LegacySameSiteCookieBehaviorEnabledForDomainList setting.

Office 365 ProPlus delivers cloud-connected and always up-to-date versions of the Office desktop apps. To ensure that customers get the best value and experience from Office 365 ProPlus, we are sending this reminder as to the impact of upcoming changes to Windows support on Office 365 ProPlus.
How does this affect me?
As communicated in MC192504 (October 2019), we noted Windows 7 will go out of support after January 14, 2020. At this time, Windows Server 2008 will also go out of support. We understand Office 365 ProPlus customers may need more time in their migration to a supported operating system. Through January 2023, Microsoft will provide security updates for Office 365 ProPlus on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008. But, during that time, as long as customers are still running one of these unsupported operating systems, Office 365 ProPlus won’t receive any new feature updates.
For Windows Server 2012/R2, we previously announced and stated in a support article, that Office 365 ProPlus will no longer be supported on Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2. While Microsoft will not take any measures to block users with this configuration from connecting to Office 365 services, Office 365 ProPlus on Windows Server 2012/R2 will not be a supported configuration. While Microsoft does not anticipate any change to Office 365 ProPlus compatibility with Windows Server 2012/R2, customers may experience changes to performance or reliability issues. Microsoft Support will continue to accept calls from customers, however we may not be able to resolve issues that arise if those issues are determined to be unique to this configuration.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
For customers on Windows 7, we recommend that organizations migrate to Windows 10 or a supported operating system before the end of support date on January 14, 2020 in order to continue receiving new feature updates to Office 365 ProPlus. For more information, please refer to this article.
For customers on Windows Server 2008/R2 and Windows Server 2012/R2, we recommend migrating your applications to Azure. For those customers who need to stay on-premises, we recommend moving to Windows Server 2019.

Current status as of July 16, 2019:
We are initiating the Windows 10 May 2019 Update for customers with devices that are at or nearing end of service and have not yet updated their device. Keeping these devices both supported and receiving monthly updates is critical to device security and ecosystem health. Based on the large number of devices running the April 2018 Update, that will reach the end of 18 months of service on November 12, 2019, we are starting the update process now for Home and Pro editions to help ensure adequate time for a smooth update process.
Our update rollout process takes into consideration the scale and complexity of the Windows 10 ecosystem, with the many hardware, software, and app configuration options users have, to provide a seamless update experience for all users. We closely monitor update feedback to allow us to prioritize those devices likely to have a good update experience and quickly put safeguards on other devices while we address known issues. Windows 10 Home and Pro edition users will have the ability to pause the update for up to 35 days so they can choose a convenient time.
The Windows 10 May 2019 Update is available for any user who manually selects “Check for updates” via Windows Update on a device that does not have a safeguard hold for issues already detected. If you are not offered the update, please check below for any known issues that may affect your device.
We recommend commercial customers running earlier versions of Windows 10 begin targeted deployments of Windows 10, version 1903 to validate that the apps, devices, and infrastructure used by their organizations work as expected with the new release and features.
