Support for Dynamic '+' Email Aliases in Office 365
I am familiar with using a plus sign following my email alias to create dynamic unique addresses for a Gmail account. e.g. email@example.com will arrive at my Gmail mailbox, where I can then apply rules based on the 'To:' address. See this page for details: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/22370
I tested this on my Office 365 address and it works, but only for email addresses in my parent domain. Using the aliases on subdomain addresses results in a 'recipient not found' NDR.
Does anyone out there have more information on this feature or if it even is one for 365 / Exchange?
I’m pleased to announce that the plus addressing feature is now available for Exchange Admins to enable. This can be done through Powershell using the following command:
Set-OrganizationConfig -AllowPlusAddressInRecipients $true
For instructions on how to use Powershell, you can find out more here:
The setting may not instantly take effect so please expect a delay before you can start using plus addresses.

Is this rolled out 100% yet? Are there instructions how to enable it? Thanks...

Any update of the instructions for enabling this feature in Office 365? This is preventing the final step in my migration from Gsuite to M365. Thank you
So if understand it correctly then I should be able to enable the feature because it is currently rolled out WW?
Maybe one of the beta testers could be so kind share a short info where to find the setting as long there is no official documentation available?
I'd like to be able to choose which symbols to use for aliases.
The plus sign is generally used.
However, this symbol may be blocked by the mail form.
It is desirable to be able to use other symbols as well, such as underbars.
Any update on this?
Any way to get into the beta for this?
I just tried it on a hotmail address and it worked for me. I didn't opt into any beta program, but that address may not be in scope of the original request.

As we approach the end of August, is there any update regarding the feature release date?

Hello, we are interested in this feature as well. Is it too late to be a beta tester for this? Thanks!

I will be more than happy to join my tenant in the beta tests.
I've sent an email as requested here before, but I haven't received any reply regarding that topic.

@Sean - Excellent! How do we sign up to be beta testers?
Please ensure that when viewing an email in Outlook that we will be able to see the dynamic alias that the email was sent to.
Currently it's not even possible to see the standard alias that an email was sent to without inspecting the headers.
Be nice to hear if this is still expected to be on time

This needs to be fast tracked!
