(Node.js) Auto-Refresh O365 Access Token when Sending Email

See more Office365 Examples

Demonstrates how to automatically recover from an expired access token when sending email from smtp.office365.com using OAuth2 authentication. If the server responds with an error indicating that the access token is expired, then we refresh the access token and retry.
