This news isn’t unexpected, with the company announcing EWS would not benefit from any new features back in 2018. Now, the firm has announced that in three years’ time, EWS will block requests from non-Microsoft apps to Exchange Online.
Microsoft is shutting down its cross-platform Exchange Web Services (EWS) API from October 1 2026, meaning users won’t be able to access their emails and contacts from Exchange Online.
