Connecting to Exchange Online with PowerShell

The task was simple: Change the alias and the primary SMTP address of a Microsoft Teams team. This can be done by changing the alias and the SMTP address of the underlaying Office 365 group. But how? All you need is a PowerShell connection to Exchange Online.

All you need is a PowerShell on your local computer and Office 365 credentials with the necessary privileges.

First we need to provide the necessary credentials.

A windows will come up and you must enter your Office365 credentials.

The next step is to create a PowerShell remote session with Exchange Online.

Please note that basic auth will be disabled in October 2020!

To connect to this remote session, use Import-PSSession.

When you finished your work, make sure to remove the remote session with Remove-PSSession!
