  4. Click Save changes.
  5. Allow 24 hours for the new aliases to populate throughout Office 365. The user will now have a primary address and an alias. For example, all mail sent to John Smith's primary address,, and his alias,, will go to John's Inbox.

Note: If you get an error message "A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'EmailAddresses' it means that it's taking a bit longer to finish setting up your alias, or your custom domain if you recently added one. The setup process can take up to 4 hours to complete. Wait a while so the setup process has time to finish, and then try again. If the problem persists, contact Microsoft Support and they will perform a sync for you.
