Add an Alias for Exchange 2013


An Alias is an additional email address against your mailbox that you can receive emails to. Emails sent to an alias will arrive to the main mailbox's Inbox as normal.

An Alias can be promoted to become the main email address, known as the Primary SMTP or Default address, of the account. 

If you need to send as the additional address, it should instead be configured as a Distribution Group, which you can grant Send As permissions over.
