Alternatives to SMTP basic authentication


Does anyone know if there is a plan to discontinue basic auth on SMTP?  I thought OAUTH2 was being introduced but someone said to me that there are no changes to SMTP Basic Auth.  What happens if Office 365 turn it off next month?

Hi @Arthur Osman 

If I'm not mistaken Microsoft is suppose to discontinue it soon, but I believe they've extended the timeline. On the other hand Google is still supporting it for the meantime and should follow suite. Atlassian has an EAP release for oAuth but I believe by the time providers such as Microsoft and Google draw a date to an EOL for basic auth, there should be an alternative in place.
