Microsoft 365 from GoDaddy Help

Search for accounts that use Basic authentication

Microsoft 365 accounts that use POP and IMAP will no longer be supported because Basic authentication is being deprecated. Find out which users are using POP and IMAP settings, as well as their specific protocol.

  1. Sign in to the Azure Active Directory admin center. Use your Microsoft 365 email address and password (your GoDaddy username and password won't work here).
  2. On the leftmost side, select Azure Active Directory.
    Azure Active Directory highlighted in the menu
  3. Under Monitoring, select Sign-in logs. You might need to scroll down.
    Sign-in logs highlighted in the Monitoring menu
  4. Select Add filters.
    Add filters highlighted
  5. Select Client app, and then select Apply.
    Client app selected and highlighted
  6. Select Client app: None Selected.
    Client app: None selected highlighted
  7. Select the checkboxes next to all the applications under Legacy Authentication Clients.
    select checkboxes next to applications under legacy authentication clients
  8. Select Apply. The User sign-ins table will update.

If there are no results, the table will say No sign-ins found, which means none of your users are connecting with Basic authentication.

If you see results listed, then those users are connecting with Basic authentication. If you select one of the results, you’ll see which specific Client app they're using, like IMAP4, POP3, or MAPI over HTTP.
