2 e-mailadresses and 1 account

This question has suggested answer(s) This question has suggested answer(s)

I have 2 e-mail addresses of my organization. Is it possible to receive messages of both email-adresses on 1 Office365 account.  And when I send messages, I want to choose if I use e-mail address # 1 or # 2 as sender. Is this possible?

    According to the tags you added, I'd like to confirm if you are using Office 365 pre-upgrade for enterprise.
    If yes, you can refer to the following steps to achieve this feature:

    1.Create a shared mailbox with your first email address.
    2.Grant Full Access and Send As permission of shared1 to user2, then user2 can send emails with shared1 address by changing the From address when sending emails.
    You can run the following command line in Windows PowerShell:
    Add-MailboxPermission <> -User "user2" -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All
    Add-RecipientPermission <> -AccessRights SendAs -Trustee <user2>
