How to set up a distribution list for email aliases in Office365. – wintips.org

If you want to know how you can create and configure a distribution list to “Forward” as email aliases in Office 365, continue reading below. As you know, an “Email Alias” is an additional email address that can be associated with a primary email account to receive emails sent to that email address.

In simple terms, this means that if you create an email alias for an Office 365 user, all mail sent to the alias address will be delivered to the user’s primary mailbox. Also, if the user wants to reply to these emails, the emails will be sent through their Office365 account and the user’s primary email address will appear in the From list. To avoid this, you can configure Outlook to send from an email alias, or to create a public mailbox with an alias address, or create a distribution list with the email address explained in this article.

This guide provides instructions on how to send email from an email alias using a distribution list in Office 365.
