What’s Next?
Now that you have connected to Exchange Online using Modern Authentication, you can use the Exchange Online PowerShell v2 Module Preview to perform a variety of tasks. For example, you can use the Get-Mailbox cmdlet to retrieve a list of mailboxes in your organization, or the Get-MessageTrace cmdlet to retrieve the message trace logs for messages sent and received by your organization.

The Exchange Online PowerShell v2 Module Preview provides a secure and easy-to-use way to connect to Exchange Online using Modern Authentication. With this new version of the Exchange Online PowerShell Module, administrators can take advantage of the advanced security features offered by Modern Authentication, while also leveraging the powerful automation capabilities of PowerShell to manage their Exchange Online environment.
