Step 0. Check if your account is from Outlook or Microsoft Office 365
How to know this? Pretty easy! Check the end of your email address. If this is “@ yourdomain.com”, your configuration will surely require an extra step.
For those having an Outlook account, you can go to step 3 directly. As well as for those who already configured SMTP with their account.
Step 1. Go to your Admin page on Microsoft
Here’s the link : here.
You will need to be Admin to be able to activate authenticated SMTP. Here is the interface you should be in:
Now that you are on your Admin center page, you’ll need to choose for which domain you are making changes. Go to this page and select the domain of your choice.
You now need to change the authenticated SMTP for users of your choice. Once you are on your domain page, simply click on “Users” to see all users defined on your domain. Select the user you want to connect to Waalaxy.
A menu will then appear on the right of the screen.
- Click on “Mail > Manage emails apps”:
- Click on the “Authenticated SMTP” if the checkbox isn’t checked and save your changes.
Step 2. Disable modern authentication
You can directly go on your Azure portal. However, if you want to read first what means disabling modern authentication, you can see it by following these steps:
- From your administration page, click on “Settings” then “Organization settings”.
- Scroll down on the list to find “Modern authentication”.
- Click on “Modern authentication”. You’ll have a link: “enable security defaults in the Azure portal”. This links you to your Azure portal.
You made it to Azure portal! Simply click on “Manage Security defaults” and disable it by clicking on “No” on the menu which will open. Don’t forget to save.
Step 3. Synchronize your account to Waalaxy
Now that everything is ready, you can put your credentials into Waalaxy.
