My understanding is that they're deprecating "basic authentication" 
support for IMAP, not IMAP itself.  You can continue to use IMAP as long 
as you authenticate using OAuth.

Since MailMate supports OAuth for Google, I expect (hope) that support 
for Office 365 is only a matter of time.

I don't know anything about Duo to comment on Roger's original question 
though.  However, many 2FA applications historically allowed you to 
append (or in some cases prepend) your fixed-length second factor to 
your password.  I don't know if Office 365 / Duo work that way.  I would 
not be surprised if they do not.
