Outlook for Windows will support sending mail from alias
Alias are functions in the email system. The so-called aliases mean that users can configure multiple different email addresses such as proxy addresses to send emails.
Proxy address sending email has been used in various webmail systems for many years, of course, it is also used by many scammers to send emails posing as well-known companies.
However, there are also normal uses. Users sending emails through proxy addresses can help protect their email addresses and prevent their email addresses from being leaked.
The proxy address can also be used to send or receive mail. This function is used by enterprise users in most cases, and of course, it also supports consumer users.
The alias sending function is expected to arrive in Outlook for Windows in March 2021, allowing users to use aliases to send and receive emails after configuration.
This function requires the support of the mail server used by the user. After the POP or IMAP mail server is configured, it can be sent through the domain name preset by the administrator.
This is a good feature for companies with multiple brands. Employees can use different brand domain names to send emails to customers according to their needs.
Before this function is supported, users can also add and use multiple different mail accounts, so that when sending mail, you can drop down and select the account in the sender.
