Mimecast Synchronization Engine only supports an Active Directory replication that is On-Premise. Active Directory replication on Office 365 isn't supported.

Active Directory Synchronization using the Mimecast Synchronization Engine (MSE) allows you to automate the following administrative tasks. It uses a secure outbound connection from your organization's network to Mimecast to:

  • Synchronize users from Active Directory to Mimecast.
  • Synchronize groups and group membership from Active Directory to Mimecast.
  • Synchronize user status from Active Directory to Mimecast (optional).
  • Synchronize user attributes from Active Directory to Mimecast (optional).
  • Automatically link user alias addresses to their respective primary address (optional).

MSE Active Directory Synchronization does not allow for authentication using Active Directory / Domain passwords. Authentication is made against the Active Directory server in real time.
