Create a placeholder for your Powershell Session towards Exchange Online.
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection

Import your Powershell Session to connect to Exchange Online.
Import-PSSession $Session
