Starting October 1st, Microsoft will start to disable basic authentication across multiple services, including Exchange Online.

The following applications may be affected and need additional configuration:

  • Laserfiche Email Archive
  • Laserfiche Forms
    • Email approval only
  • Laserfiche Workflow
    • Create Exchange Item activity
    • Create List Item (Sharepoint)
    • Delete List Item (Sharepoint)


Laserfiche Email Archive and Laserfiche Forms may require reconfiguration using OAuth 2.0. Laserfiche Workflow requires an upgrade to version 11 update 2 in order to access new options for using OAuth 2.0 when connecting to Exchange Online.


See KB1014391 for more information. This issue does not affect self-hosted versions of Exchange or other mail servers.

Functionality using SMTP authentication to Exchange Online in the following products is not affected:

  • Laserfiche Email Archive
  • Laserfiche Forms
  • Laserfiche Workflow
  • Laserfiche Web Client
  • Laserfiche Quick Fields
  • Laserfiche Directory Server
  • Laserfiche WebLink
