Session controls in Conditional Access now also controlling Exchange Online

Hey my MDM authority is set to Office 365 in Microsoft Intune
This week I added a Microsoft Intune license to an existing Office 365 tenant. On this Office 365 tenant the Intune Mobile Device Management features in Office 365 were enabled and configured. After adding the Microsoft Intune license I looked at starting to configure the service and set the Mobile Device Management Authority.READ MORE
