Technical, Microsoft, 163 words   Bookmark and Share

Microsoft 365 has a bunch of additional features not found on their OWA (Outlook web application) which you can access via Powershell, however you will need at least a Computer Science degree to use MS’ Powershell.

Fortunately, Ross provided me a couple of commands to log into 365’s powershell easily.

Firstly, ensure that your executionpolicy is set to RemoteSigned. If unsure just run the following


Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

To login to 365 via powershell, if you have MSOnline modules (instructions on installing MSOnline in the above Powershell link), try the following with your 365 Admin account or try alternate method further below.


$user = "admin@yourdomain.com.au"
$cred = Get-Credential -Credential $user
Import-Module MSOnline
Connect-MsolService -Credential $cred
$msoExchangeURL = “https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/”
$session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri $msoExchangeURL -Credential $cred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $session

Otherwise try this if you don’t


$LiveCred = Get-Credential
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $session
