Hi,

 

I have a group which we have created long back. Recently we have made few changes in the organization and decided to rename the group accordingly. But renaming the group doesn't change the email-id for obvious reasons. But I would like to know if there's a way to create an Alias or an alternate email for the outlook group.

@Anwesh Gangula  - You can add a new email address and make it the primary address with this cmdlet:

Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity "O365GroupName" -PrimarySmtpAddress "NewEmailAddress@YourTenant.com"
Thank you for the reply Keera. But i'm not an IT professional/SharePoint Admin.
It looks like this should solve the issue. I'll reach out to my Admin about this.
