Sending from a Proxy Address (Outlook on the Web)

We’re excited to announce that Outlook on the web will natively support the ability to choose a proxy (alias) address from a drop-down list right within the compose pane. When the mail is received by a recipient, the FROM and REPLY TO will show that alias, regardless of where the recipient’s mailbox happens to live.

Update to Meeting creation and expiration policies

We have made changes to how Teams meetings and join links are accessible for meeting organizers who have had their scheduling capabilities revoked. Today, Teams meeting URLs can be accessed before, during, and after the scheduled meeting time, even if the scheduling permission for the meeting organizer has been revoked after the meeting was created. To implement this change, we have adjusted the behavior of some settings in csTeamsMeetingPolicy to give additional control to the Tenant Admins.

We apologize for not communicating this change sooner. We are working to ensure we communicate changes prior to them being available, in the future.
