Multiple versions of Microsoft's Outlook email client will soon be unable to connect to Microsoft 365 services.
In a recent blog post, Microsoft stated,that in less than two months, users of Outlook 2007, 2010 and, to some extent, Office 2013 (versions earlier than 15.0.4971.1000) will no longer be able to connect to Microsoft 365 services.
The company offered its users ahead of scheduleupgrade to new versions to avoid interruptions in work. Microsoft said its support team is reaching out to people who are still using Outlook 2007 and 2010 to “help them meet the deadline,” and said anyone who can't do this on their own should seek help.
Explaining what this step means, Microsoftsaid that older versions of Outlook will no longer support Basic Authentication as of November 1 (the company says this should improve the security of Microsoft 365).
