How to migrate smartphone users to the Outlook app with Intune

With the pending retirement of Microsoft Basic Authentication, the best way to protect mobile device users connecting through Exchange is to move them to Outlook.


Last week Microsoft went one better and announced it will retire Basic Authentication for EWS, EAS, IMAP, POP and RPS to access Exchange Online on the same date. Any application using OAuth 2.0 to connect to these protocols will continue to work without change or interruption. As your Cloud Solution Provider we will be implementing required best practices set by Microsoft that you disable Basic Authentication to beef up security in Office 365.

What should you do now if you have Office 365?

Start by moving away from the native email applications on Android and Apple iPhone’s and moving people to the Outlook applications. If you are planning a move to Office 365 away from on-premises Exchange, you should move people over to the application now. The application supports additional protocols and email platforms, so if your users receive personal email as well as the firm email on their phones, you can migrate all email over to Outlook.
