Microsoft 365 Account

You can authorize Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange to send email notifications on behalf of your Microsoft 365 account. To send email messages, Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange communicates with the Microsoft Graph API. For authentication, Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange uses an access token issued by the Microsoft identity platform. To acquire an access token, you can either use an application preinstalled by Veeam or specify details of the custom Azure AD application registered in the Azure portal. For more information on obtaining client credentials, see Registering Application in Azure Portal.
