Office 365 Send E-mail and Recieve E-Mail from a Distribution Group

Last Modified: 2015-03-02
I have a requirement in Office 365 to create a group of users that will send and receieve emails as "operations@mydomain.com".

I appreciate I can create a Distribution Group names "Operations", however I can not send as operations@mydomian.com

Outlook web app doesn't allow me to select operations@mydomain.com as a Send From.
If I do this in the Outlook 2013 Locally I can setup this From address and it will send out correctly.

Upon reply the email does indeed get sent back to operations@mydomain.com and everyone in the distribution group receives a copy of the email.

This is where the problem lies, If the user then does a reply the email is sent back as the user@mydomain.com not the required operations@mydomain.com.

Is there anyway to control this mail flow?

I have looked at the Experts-Exchange Powershell way of doing this and waited over 24 hours to make sure any replication is required on the servers and I'm still unable to achieve this.

Thank you.
