Office 365 ProPlus or Office perpetual in mainstream support are required to connect to Office 365 services starting 13th October 2020. Office 365 ProPlus will deliver the best experience, but if you aren’t ready to move to the cloud by 2020, Microsoft will also support connections from Office perpetual in mainstream support.
• This applies to Office 365 commercial services only. This update does not change Microsoft’s system requirements or support policies for the Office perpetual clients, Office perpetual clients connecting to on-premises servers, or any consumer services.
• Until this new requirement goes into effect in 2020, Office 2010, Office 2013 and Office 2016 perpetual clients will still be able to connect to Office 365 services.
• After this date only Office 365 ProPlus, Office 2016 (until October 2023) or Office 2019 will be able to connect to commercial Office 365 services.
