It looks like EWS on Office365 supports Oauth:

there seem to be more and more services switching to/using OAuth(2),
being it for example Yahoo!, Google and now also Office365. The only
OAuth2 implementation directly in the evolution is for Google
currently. GNOME Online Accounts can do more, but I do not think they
support it for EWS (I do not know for sure). There would still be
required other changes on the evolution-ews side, to advertise proper
authentication method in the headers when talking to the server.

It's still doable, the Google OAuth2 implementation is the proof, but
it looks harder for the Office365. I didn't read the links you gave
thoroughly, thus it needs more investigation. One thing is that I do
not have any test account on the Office365, neither with the two-factor
authentication enabled, thus it's even harder to do anything with it.

If I were able to secure you a test account with two-factor enabled,
would that help?  I'm not saying I can (I need to beg my IT
overlords), but they are motivated to help our Linux user base, so I
might have enough leverage to make it happen.

We can start with a bug filling at:
but more coordination would be required to move it anywhere close
to the resolution.

Thank you for the reply and interest, and opening the bug to track
this.  I'll see if I can get you access to an environment that would
enable development and testing, if you think it'd be useful.
