Can’t find how to use alias e mail

  john bunyan 18:26 20 Feb 2019

I use Outlook ( part of Outlook 2016) as a platform for a number of email accounts for my wife and self, both Outlook ones and a couple of others. I mostly use [email protected]

To avoid using this for buying etc I created an alias on this one. However when I launch Outlook, I can, if I press the new mail, from, button the drop down list doesn’t include the alias. I think I saw it when I launched it another way but can’t repeat how to do it. Any suggestions?

Because I like, with an Outlook e mail IMAC account, to get notifications or sending on desktop, iPhone or laptop. Theoretically the alias will show outgoing as [email protected] but sill come in to [email protected] I prefer to keep the list of e mils small.

IMAC = IMAP sorry

Try New, From, Other E-mail address and add alias in the From box.

I have created an alias in Outlook. Assume it is [email protected] Theoretically I should be able to send from it , but when I do so it appears on the outgoing mail as eg john.bunyan . This defeats the object. When I try to tell it where to send from , only my and my wife's accounts are shown as from. How to solve it?

This wont let me show the sideways arrows! It appears as john,bunyan (left facing arrow) joe,[email protected] (right facing arrow)

Last question - no answers yet. Alias , on arrival, shows my true name pus the alias. How do I make an alias work in Outlook? I want it to use foe Amazon etc to stop harvesting of e mails.

Give up using Outlook

No, only just moved to it from Talk Talk. Too many contacts to tell. It should work, I will crack it or maybe get a gmail one for trades

According to outlook aliases should be possible. Hopefully someone who uses it will share their experience
