Simple question-but the help files just go in circles:
"..your company already has a vanity domain ... it enables you to create
email addresses, Microsoft Lync Online accounts, and distribution lists
that use your own domain name..."
But the linked article doesn't even mention email accounts.
I've added a domain to a P1 account-how do I set up an email account for that domain?
Thanks for the feedback.
First of all, make sure you your domain has been added. To add a domain, please follow the steps below.
1, Click Add a domain in the left navigation bar of your Office 365 Admin Panel.
2, Type in your domain, and click Check domain to verify this domain information.
3, If the domain has been confirmed successfully, click next.
4, The guidance will appear to help you create a CNAME value in your domain provider.
5, One or two days later after you creating the CNAME, get back to Add a domain in your Office 365 Admin Panel to verify if it works.
6, After confirming the configuration successfully, the domain has been added to your Office 365.
Then you could go to Exchange Control Panel to create user with your domain.
1, Click Mailboxes under User & Groups in ECP.
2, Click New->User Mailbox.
3, Under Microsoft Online Services ID category, you could change the drop down list to your own domain.
I will this could help you with your problem.
Thanks. the domain part is done no problem
But where do I find the :"Exchange Control Panel" ?
Login as admin, click Manage Exchange
There's no manage exchange link. As I said this is a P1 account, is exchange not available to P1's?
Clearly I didnt read closlely enougn.
Sorry. I dont have the beta P1 at this time so cant really help.
Since you said there is no Manage Exchange link, you may access to the manage panel through your e-mail account.
1, Login your exchange online mailbox.
2, Expand Options on the right top side of your mailbox, click See All Options.
3, In the coming page, change status from Manage Myself to Manage My Organization.
In this way, you could access the ECP of your organization.
According to the Office 365 beta service description, the first license (P1) includes the following as a group or individually selectable:
If you have selected Exchange Online, you can find Exchange Online at the Admin Overview page as outline with blue in the following capture. Click Manage to access the ECP. Anything unclear, please feel free to let me know.
Tried that, but I get an access denied error when I click options.
That option isn't available on my admin overview page.
It seems that you don't have the permission for exchange online. Please check if you have assigned exchange license to this account using the default account for Office 365 and give it permission for exchange online.

Under assign licenses:
Exchange Online (P1) is checked
And if I click "manage exchange settings" I get this:
Sorry! Access denied
You don't have permission to open this page. If you're a new user or
were recently assigned credentials, please wait 15 minutes and try
The same error I get when I try "options" in Outlook.
Could it be your permissions? I noticed as the only user I still didn't have full control and had to change this. Sorry if I'm way off on this, I found MSOL differcult!
