  • Hi,

    If that user only know the secondary email address of a shared mailbox. If that user can't see that shared mailbox in address list. Then it can be done. But on the recipient side, no difference, it will show the primary SMTP address of shared mailbox.

    So is there any reason why you want to do this?

    Best Regards.

  • Hi Niranjan,

    I believe this isn't possible without using 3rd party software, you can only send as the mailbox's primary SMTP address. A workaround could be to configure a POP/SMTP account in outlook for the address disabling receive but you would require a recieve connector on exchange that allowed it.

    Thanks

  • Hi Daniel,

    I too believe we can't reply from an alias email address but just checked on the possibility.

    Could you please explain on the Receive connector part? I just want the user to send mails from an alias email address from the shared mailbox.

  • If you were to setup the user to send using SMTP through exchange then you would need a receive connector on your exchange server to listen on the internal address for the connection from their outlook client, it would have to allow exchange users (assuming you had authentication enabled)

    This guide is quite detailed for the external relay
