In the Scan2x job, navigate to Source settings. Then navigate to “from Mail” and “Microsoft Outlook (Graph)”.

Copy and paste the Tenant ID, Client ID and Client Secret which have been extracted previously.

The username would be the one that you used to login to the mailbox.
Note: if the administrator decides to change the email address, a verification email will be sent to the newly input email address with a code.

Please insert the code received by email in the Scan2x Verification Code panel (this will appear once a new email has been input).


The rest of the functionality is identical to the pre-existing IMAP functionality.
