Sending from a Proxy Address (Outlook on the Web)

MC252942 – Microsoft’s excited to announce that Outlook on the web will natively support the ability to choose a proxy (alias) address from a drop-down list right within the compose pane. When the mail is received by a recipient, the FROM and REPLY TO will show that alias, regardless of where the recipient’s mailbox happens to live.
