Can I have an "Email Only" User Account in Office 365?


Is there a way to have an "Email Only" user in Office 365? I'd like to be able to send emails from multiple email addresses, but don't need additional Office licenses, nor the added expense. I have alias set up for receiving emails, but want to be able to send from other addresses too. Any ideas?

Hi Scot B,

It’s not feasible to send emails from aliases in Office 365. Thanks for your understanding. Meanwhile, I suggest you vote for the feature via this link:

Moreover, here is a workaround that you can create a shared mailbox and grant the send as permission of the shared mailbox to you only, then you can send from a different email address when needed.

Let me know if anything is unclear.
