IT Pro: 2 Ways to configure server-side using MFA-Enabled 365 account

MFA-enabled Microsoft 365 admin accounts will not allow you to configure Server-side via Web console. This is only possible via PowerShell or with the use of the 365 App Password. This article describes the two options on how to configure Xink rerouting for Microsoft 365 without disabling your admin account's Multi-Factor Authentication.

1. Configure Server-side using 365 App Password

The first step is to ensure that you have a Global Admin User with at least Exchange Online 1 license.

Next, you will need to obtain an App Password from the Microsoft 365 Admin Center. Just click here to be redirected directly to the App Passwords site, as shown below. Click on App Passwords tab, then Create and make sure to Copy and Save the code generated from here.

Please allow for up to 1 hour for replication from your Admin Center before you proceed to the Xink Portal. Then go to Preferences > Integration Tab> Microsoft 365 (Server-side), click Start Integration and fill in the information required and use the App Password you have saved and generated previously. Then you can click Create.

Tick the boxes below then click Save. Please allow 1 hour for the replication to take place before sending a test email from mobile.

2. Configure server-side using a Xink PowerShell Script

1.    Install Exchange Online Remote PowerShell Module.

    a.    In the Exchange Admin Center, go to Hybrid > Setup and click the Configure button to download the Exchange Online Remote PowerShell Module for Multi-Factor Authentication.

    b.    In the Application Install window that opens, click Install. If you get an error, try using Internet Explorer to access Office 365 tenant and click Configure.

2.    Download the Xink PowerShell Script and save it to a local drive. (Ex. D:\Xink\MFA Test).

3.    Launch the Microsoft Exchange Online PowerShell Module and run the below commands.

    a.    Enter your Xink Admin credentials once prompted.

       $xinkCred = Get-Credential

    b.    Go to the folder where you saved the PowerShell script. (ex. CD D:\Xink\MFA Test) and run the below command. You will be asked to log into your Microsoft 365 portal through MFA.

        .\xink-rerouting.ps1 -UseMFA -XinkCredential $xinkCred -O365LogonEmail "youroffice365admin@domain.com" -Create


The screenshot below shows the result of the script that ran successfully.

Tick the boxes below then click Save. Please allow 1 hour for the replication to take place before sending a test email from mobile.
