Thanks, Eric. Active Sync is evidently Microsoft's version of IMAP. It has been around for a while and MS is apparently claiming that Active Sync is more secure for mobile devices. I tried to set up a new IMAP account with MailMate, but get no screen showing the option of OAuth2, and I'm quite sure now that Active Sync is NOT OAuth2.

I don't know too much about ActiveSync, but if it's Exchange 365 using
so-called modern Auth (i.e. OAuth2), my experience is that MailMate
r5757 works fine.  You need to select OAuth2 in the "IMAP Account
Settings" screen for both IMAP & SMTP.  Specify outlook.office365.com<http://outlook.office365.com/> as
the IMAP & SMTP Servers, enter your email address, and you'll
authenticate via a window that will appear.

It's possible the server side is configured to only allow specific mail
clients.  If that's the case, you'll see a message about MailMate not
being an approved client.  At that point you're at the mercy of your
school and whatever policies they have in place.

But it's worth a try, it might just work!
