Ignite 2020 Announcements
So, first thing first, let’s explain what Plus Addressing is.
This feature has been used by many providers like Gmail and others, but it was not there in Exchange online.
Let us take an example to understand it, My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I want to subscribe to newsletter on some site.
Instead of using my email address I can just subscribe as email@example.com and can still receive Newsletter from that site.
This helps in managing the emails as you can create rules and auto move emails based on that.
Enable Plus Addressing on Exchange online:
Connect to Exchange Online Shell and use below command:
By default, AllowPlusAddressInRecipients is set to False
Let us change it to True:
Set-OrganizationConfig -AllowPlusAddressInRecipients $true
Now let’s test it out for Office 365 as well
It worked, so now We can make rules and manage these emails with ease.
