Search the FAQ for entries containing:

Even though you can configure Office 365 to receive e-mail from multiple domains (john@primarydomain.com, john@secondarydomain.com, john@tertiarydomain.com), there is no easy way of being able to send out e-mails from one of your alternate domains. Office 365 by default only allows you to send out e-mails from your primary domain.

The procedure below will configure a secondary e-mail address so that you will be able to select at the time of sending, which e-mail to use for that message. Your primary e-mail address will not change with this procedure (if you do want to change the primary e-mail address please send us a support request here).

Please note that this procedure will only work if the secondary domains have already been configured in your Office 365 configuration.
