Requesting BMC enhance email2event to support Microsoft's blockage of basic authentication:
In October 2020, Microsoft will block “basic authentication” for all mailboxes leveraging IMAP or POP3 email protocols. The change will require the use of OAuth (also referred to as OAuth2.0) for authentication instead of basic authentication. Click here to view the Microsoft article about the change.
OAuth is an open standard authentication protocol which is widely used across the internet. It is more secure than basic authentication because it doesn’t share password data. Instead it uses authorization tokens between the application and the service it is connecting to.
BMC Support says "The feature to enhance Event2Email to support OAuth is on the backlog, and not committed to a particular timeframe. "
If you too have a need for this, please vote up this idea. Thanks!
