This post talks about how to enable folks to use Multiple aliases to send email from the BPOS suite. Jeff Medford provided the following blurb below: In order to have a user be able to send from multiple aliases, you’ll want to set up distribution lists and set up send-as permissions. For e.g., say you’ve thomas@domain.microsoftonline.com as your user, but he wants to have an alias thomas@domain1.com to be able to send as that. You’ll then set up a distribution list in Administration Center ( Service Settings > Exchange Online > Distribution Lists ). This distribution list will’ve address thomas@domain1.com with user thomas@domain.microsoftonline.com as sole member of that list. Once you've done that, you’ll want to set up send-as permissions for that user so that he can send as thomas@domain1.com. You’ll be able to set this up through PowerShell. User’ll need to have PowerShell 1.0. Once open, follow instructions: At PowerShell prompt, type following, Add-MSOnlineMailPermission -Identity john.doe@contoso.com -TrustedUser jane.doe@contoso.com -GrantSendAs $True -Credential (Get-Credential) –Verbose (The user specified for the trusted user parameter will be given send-as rights to the mailbox specified for the identity parameter.) Then you’ll simply repeat this process for every other alias that you would like to set up.
