Quick Reminder: RPC over HTTP reaches end of support in Office 365 / Exchange Online on October 31, 2017

This post is just a quick reminder that, as announced in November 2016, Exchange Online will stop supporting RPC over HTTP at the end of October, 2017. If you’re still using RPC over HTTP you’re strongly recommended to update your client to one of the currently supported versions of Outlook (which at the moment of writing is 2010, 2013 or 2016 ).

If you’re still using Outlook 2010, please also ensure that you installed the following updates
