Note that EWS does support OAuth in Office 365, for both code and client-credential flow. The only difference to the Rest APIs is the permissions. EWS only supports "full access to mailbox" while Rest APIs do only support the granular permissions specific to a class of resources (Calendar, Mail, Contact). We recently updated the permission strings in the Application registration portal to better signal what is available for EWS. From a OAuth protocol point of view there is no difference. Note that maybe you had some issues in the preview phase where we marked the "full access to mailbox" permission as "admin only", meaning they required an admin to consent. With GA we removed this restriction. All permissions are now consent-able by an end-user. More here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/dn903761(v=exchg.150).aspx
