I have an Office 365 email account ("Exchange Online Plan 1") with over 300 "aliases" or "proxy" addresses. This is to give each company that I deal with a unique email address, for example, *** Email address is removed for privacy ***
A recent change has meant that the limit is now 200 addresses. I have no idea why this limit was introduced or why this number was picked, but it was. Therefore my mailbox is in an "unsupported" state and I cannot do anything about it.
If I try to remove an address via the web admin service I get the error "There are too many proxy addresses: 324, and maximum supported number of recipient proxy addresses is 200". If I try via a powershell I get the same error.
My questions are therefore:
a) How can I raise this limit to restore the functionality I had until a week or so ago and allow unlimited or more proxy addresses?
b) If the limit cannot be raised, how can I remove proxy email addresses to get below the new limit, given that trying to remove an email proxy address gives an error?
Thanks for any advice.
