Last week a new setting is being introduce by Microsoft (MS) Exchange Online which allows sending email as an alias. AS it is a new update for us all. I thought I will really be good to discuss with you all. So here is the topic for this article: “Sending Email as an Alias is Possible with Microsoft Exchange Online!
It has been a great requirement for most of the organizations having their mailboxes on Exchange Online (EXO) so far. Earlier, in order to receive emails, we could use either primary or aliases. But, we could only use Primary SMTP address to send emails. What I mean by that, is that we could only use the Primary SMTP address in “From” address while composing or replying to the emails.
Now, in Exchange Online, it is possible to use even Aliases or Secondary Email Addresses in “From” address or while replying to the emails.
In order to do this, we first need to configure the organization settings to enable this feature. For that, we need to connect to MS Exchange Online PowerShell module using the cmdlets below:
Cmdlets to connect to MS Exchange Online PowerShell
$UserCredential = Get-Credential
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://outlook.office365.com/powershell-liveid/ -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Then, run the following command:
Set-OrganizationConfig -SendFromAliasEnabled $true
That’s it. Now you can use Alias in the “From” address.
In Outlook Client, click on “New Email” and choose the alias you want from the dropdown of “From” address.
In Outlook Web App (OWA), you can click on (…) ellipses and select “Show from”. Then you can choose your preferred alias from the list.
Hopefully, now you know how Sending Email as an alias is Possible with MS Exchange Online,
