Yes. But when you use legacy apps like Outlook 2016 and Skype, you must use an app password if you have enabled MFA.

When I log in to outlook it asks me 6 digit password which I give from my Authenticator app

Do you mean any other app?

You need to create an app password.

Then, remove the mail account and add it back using app password.
