    What about the modern authentication for SharePoint Online?

    I needed to re-enable the legacy authentication for my Conditional Access on the Azure AD Account used for the export from Abbyy to Sharepoint to have it working.

    What about allowing custom app to be used for modern authentication with app permission?

    Current model don't allow import of shared mailbox while it's possible without any issue with app permission.

    It would also fix the current issue with the 90 days expiration period.

    Current implementation is not production ready and should be improved.
