Cora SeQuence 8.8.5 Release Notes

19 MAY 2020

This update includes a new feature and resolved issues. 


  • Graph API support for Email Listener.
    Microsoft has announced to end support for basic authentication for several Office 365 email service protocols. For more information, see this page.
    This will impact all Cora SeQuence and Cora OpsManager customers that have Email Listener activities configured with Office 365 mail service with any protocol other than Graph API and with basic authentication. For example, an Email Listener activity that uses Office 365 mail service with the EWS protocol and basic authentication will fail to connect.
    The new Graph API protocol for email listener activity uses OAuth 2.0 authentication, and provides more secure access to data. For more details, see this article.
