Microsoft Authenticator 2FA and Office365
« on: May 18, 2020, 06:10:07 pm »
I've been using aquamail pro for work for almost 2 years now.
We just went to 2FA on 0365.
I managed to get 2 FA to work initially by re-adding my account which prompted me for MSAuth approval.
After 72 hours, the client failed to authenticate and will not prompt for approval, had to recreate the profile to be prompted for 2fa
I have checked the forum and it looks to be a dated subject
The client will not recognize an app level password as well
Any thoughts on how to get this to work successfully?


Thanks in advance DGN

I may be wrong, but doesn't the Microsoft system provide a special password for logging into mail apps when you enable 2FA? I remember that I was given one when I setup 2FA on my account because the regular password won't keep you logged in.
