Searching the Internet for this probably very simple request had brought me nothing.

We apparently have a password reset thing set in Office 365.  I and some other admins get an email when a person requests to have their PW reset. I'd like to change the list of those getting that notification, but can't find where in the O365 environment that is set. Can anyone here help?

They are sent to admins with the Password admin role. If you dont have such, User management admins are next on the list. Lastly, Global admins will receive them if no other types of admins are present. Details are here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_o365admin-mso_manage/change-notification-recipient-for-password-reset/2587fb04-a7a8-4434-b811-0a0f2e90d4cc

Yeah, I found that article already, but it doesn't say where to check or how to check or how to change them. Here's a more specific thing that I'm looking for. I have a "admin" user who's getting the notifications. I don't see that this user is doing anything else and I want to delete him from AD.  However, the only reference I have for him is his tenet email address, which is admin@domain.onmicrosoft.com. However, I can't locate which user that address belongs to . The email address admin@domain.com is really an alias for me and one other admin user I can find in AD is really admin2@domain.com. Where can I find a listing of who has this ability in the EAC?
