[MlMt] Advice on using MM with 2 Factor authentication ( Duo)?

Hi everyone,
My employer @UCSD.edu has just announced mandatory 2 factor 
authentication login for email, using Duo.
We run Microsoft Office 365 Exchange.  I access via IMAP. The university 
wants us to access via a web browser, but afaik very few actually do.

Does anyone have experience with Duo authentication for MailMate? For 
example, will I have to authenticate via Duo each time MM wants to 
retrieve mail?  That’s impractical, obviously. My “other 
university,” Stanford, also uses Duo heavily but so far not for email.

Comment: With many applications, Duo can be activated for a week at a 
time. With Safari, however, that no longer works because Apple has 
locked it down too far.

Thanks for any advice. Oddly, I could not find discussion of any 
two-factor authentication in the manual.

**Given recent events such as the UCOP data breach and the ransomware 
attack at Scripps Health, effective Tuesday, May 25, at 1:00 p.m. PDT, 
all access to UC San Diego email will require the use of two-step login 
(Duo) as part of our continued security enhancements.**
