Implement email address policy
On-premises Exchange had Email Address Policies which allowed administrators to define the email addresses (SMTP:firstname.lastname@example.org,smtp:email@example.com) that would automatically be added to mailboxes.
Office 365 desperately needs this functionality so we don't have to resort to over complicated PowerShell scripts.

Please implement this. ASAP

You can configure the email address policy, only the "apply" button is missing. This is simply a bug, and a really sloppy one.
Ever since the first business mail servers, it was possible to define address creation rules for mailboxes. The fact that the official microsoft response is to set email addresses manually for each mailbox is like going back to the stone age...

This functionality must have to added into tenant admin features in O365 to smooth management functionality for administrators.

This impacts Exchange Online stand alone.
This is core Exchange functionality and is a requirement to administer mailboxes and mail enabled resources.
This has my vote.

I cant believe its not already part of 365, its a much needed tool, Come on MS, add it in quickly. We're going to 365, but without this, I may reverse and offboard everyone if its not added quickly. 365 is great but with tools missing, its tripping itself over.

I concur. This needs to happen quickly!
I agree. I user Office 365 with DirSync and multiple domains, based on branch offices. Exchange ONLINE fucks up all my email addresses and its extremely complicated to enfore policies by hand. I absolutely cannot understand why they removed it from Exchange Online.

I hope this idea will be implemented.
