What the message from OP’s university says is that they are disabling 
IMAP and SMTP protocols on their Office 365 service. That is an optional 
access to Office 365, which itself has always been proprietary, Charlie. 
If there is enough people at the university that do not have mail 
clients that work natively with Office 365, there might be enough 
complaints that the service is restored. This is up local politics.
