Hi, I'm not sure if this has been asked before, apologies in advance if this is a duplicate. I've searched everywhere and could not find a response, so this is my last stop.

 

My office, previously used Distribution lists a lot for various specific addresses needed, eg. <accoutnspayable@xwy.com > before microsoft teams came out.  Now we are in a place where we want the office to get into Teams, and using a centralized platform for communication and to help segregate emails and unclutter inboxes.  We want to be able to create , eg. finance@xwy.com (teams group), then create email address aliases eg. (wires @xwy.com , accounts@xwy.com) and link these to the previous address.  

 

So that communication goes to 1 group inbox and the same members. Is this a featuee available in Teams / office groups ?

 

Responses are most appreciated.

You cannot change channel e-mail addresses if this is what you are referring.

Thanks for your email.... we did want to limit the number of email accounts associated with a team.  This aspect can get out of control rapidly.  Any suggestions?

Only thing you can limit is on or off. You can control who can e-mail your channels, but thsoe e-mail don't show anywhere and are random so don't really see what the negative is for having them or why you would want to limit them?

You can change the PrimarySMTPAddress of a Team yes. Set-UnifiedGroup [GroupName] -PrimarySMTPAddress The old one goes into proxyAddresses

Get an email address for the General Channel, and make that a forwarder on the advertised email address you use. If you use the Default Address taht comes with the Team, those mails go into the Group Inbox that you can only see in the Outlook client. But you have to unhide the O365 Unified Group from Exchange Clinets before you can see it, and then you would have to toggle back and forth.

I wrote a blog about this: https://www.neroblanco.co.uk/2019/11/where-do-emails-sent-to-the-the-default-microsoft-teams-email-a...

You can set SendAs on the UnifiedGroup, but that would be for the default email address and would need to be used from within Outlook. But then you would need to check the Group Inbox.

@Shad StarkYes, create the General Channel email address, then set a forwarder directly on the mailbox.  Using the -GroupMailbox switch is the key.

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Contoso" -GroupMailbox -ForwardingSmtpAddress "34694ce3.yourdomain.co.uk@emea.teams.ms"

yes, but you need to be granted SendAs on the Team (UnifiedGroup) Then create the General Channel email address, then set a forwarder directly on the mailbox.  Using the -GroupMailbox switch is the key.  Send items would not appear so you would need to BCC itself

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Contoso" -GroupMailbox -ForwardingSmtpAddress "34694ce3.yourdomain.co.uk@emea.teams.ms"
