Occasional Visitor

Hello,

 

I am having difficulty adding people to a Distribution Group (via Office 365 Online) that have multiple email addresses in their contact information. When i add a person with multiple email address i get this error:

 

"There are multiple recipients matching the identity "Doe, John". Please specify a unique value."

 

However, i can see no way to select the specific email address to add to the group. Any direction on where to specify which email address to add?

Try using the full email address, or just add the user via PowerShell.
