Creating an Office365 app password for emailing with Microsoft Dynamics GP

Microsoft Dynamics GPIn a post a couple of weeks ago on emailing from Microsoft Dynamics GP, I mentioned using Office365 Exchange integrationfor sending the emails. Usually this works fine, but, increasingly, clients are activating 2FA (Two-factor authentication) is being enabled, which means users cannot log on using their normal password as the Microsoft Dynamics GP doesn’t use 2FA.

You can however create an app password in Office365 which you can use to log in when emailing documents from Microsoft Dynamics GP.

To create an app password, log into your Office365 account and select My account by clicking on your avatar in the top right corner.

The on the left-hand navigation pane select Security & privacy and then, on the right, click Additional security verification:

Additional security verification

Select Create and manage app passwords in the left pane:

Security & privacy

Click the create button:

Create app password

Give the new app password a recognisable name:

Give app password a name

The password will be created giving you an opportunity to copy it to clipboard; click close:

Your app password

You can return to this same section of your Office365 to create a new app password or manage existing ones. The password you have can be used in place of your normal one when providing the Office365 Exchange logon to Microsoft Dynamics GP.
