Hi,

I am trying to authenticate O365 outlook client with SAML ECP, outlook is being repeatedly prompted for basic authentication after triggering the O365 Saml Ecp auth flow.

Validated using O365 outlook client and also using the Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyser tool

On Windows client ran the following command to prevent modern authentication connections (force the use of basic authentication connections) to Exchange Online by Outlook 2013 or later clients:

Set-OrganizationConfig -OAuth2ClientProfileEnabled $false

Ensured MAPI,IMAP protocols are enabled for the respective user

Ensured Basic Authentication is enabled for the tenant.

Adding the Connectivity analyser failure logs below.

Testing the MAPI Address Book endpoint on the Exchange server.An error occurred while testing the address book endpoint.

Test Steps

    Hi @shyrus joseph

    Since your question is related to Exchange development, I have added the tag "office-exchange-server-dev" to it.


    According to the result of Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer, it seems basic authentication is still blocked.

    You may use Basic Auth self-help diagnostic to check and modify the tenant settings.
