As Microsoft continues to support Dynamics GP beyond 2028 on the Modern Lifecycle, GraVoc wants to ensure your GP environment and all of your users and systems are able and ready to consume these program files and database updates in time for year-end 2022.

Dynamics GP 18.4 and 18.5 have significant security and compliance changes you should consider for your environment. These latest versions have the necessary updates to keep GP’s email functionality in sync with Microsoft’s shift from Basic Authentication to Modern Authentication, effective October 1, 2022. Many customers are experiencing the inability to send emails now, and this update will help resolve those problems.

Effective October 1, 2022 Microsoft has removed the ability to use Basic Authentication as well as disabled SMTP Auth in Exchange Online and Office 365 tenants. If your business processes emails from within Dynamics GP and is still utilizing SMTP Authentication, you will no longer be able to access this functionality until your system has been updated to use Modern Authentication. For any business still using Dynamics GP 2016 or older versions, your version does not support Modern Authentication, and will need to be updated to GP18.5 to accommodate these critical security changes.

If you have 1099 vendors, this software update could be especially important as it reflects several IRS 1099 layout changes, including dynamically printing the Tax Year which the IRS removed from the pre-printed form. The new 1099-INT, 1099-DIV, 1099-MISC, 1099-NEC, 1099-R, and 1096 Summary form field changes, as well as updates to luxury auto depreciation fixed assets are included in this year-end update for Dynamics GP 2018.5.
