Microsoft released a new update for Microsoft Office version 2202 that will now allow you to send emails from a proxy account. The new update is currently rolling out as build 14907.20000 to the Office Insiders who are registered under the Windows Beta Channel. Your tenant admin must enable this feature to make it available to users.


Microsoft Outlook will soon send emails from a proxy account


Send emails from a proxy account

Outlook has traditionally supported receiving email at addresses other than your default address (known as a proxy address, or alias). Now you can send mail from those proxy accounts as well by choosing the desired outgoing address.


To use this feature, click Home > New Email. In the message window, click the arrow on the right side of the From button and choose Manage List. You can then add additional From addresses to the dropdown menu. Once that’s done, click the address you want to send the email from (via the From menu). Compose your email, and then click the Send button.

Along with this, Microsoft also fixed two issues in the Outlook client for Windows. The first one is an issue with Outlook Search that caused incomplete results when using the OnPrem service search. The second one is an issue where a message using Digital Rights Management (DRM) could not be opened.


Microsoft Office Version 2202 (Build 14907.20000) also adds a new feature that will now provide a better coauthoring error recovery experience in MS Word.


When enabled, this feature will quickly restore users back to a connected state after experiencing coauthoring errors. This automatic refresh synchronizes all changes among different authors, so you’re seeing the most up-to-date document possible.



Dropdown lists are a handy way to make data entry and validation more efficient in Excel. In the latest Office update, Microsoft added AutoComplete functionality, which automatically compares the text typed in a cell to all items in the dropdown list and displays only the items that match. This will help you in spending less time scrolling through lists, dealing with data validation errors, or writing complex code to handle this task.
