ChooseFrom for Exchange Online/Office 365

Purpose

Office 365 mailbox may have multiple SMTP addresses. For outgoing messages Exchange online service always uses the primary SMTP address. For example, John Doe has a mailbox with [email protected] primary SMTP address and [email protected] secondary smtp address. John Doe can easily receive the message addressed both to [email protected] and [email protected], but he cannot send the message as [email protected] because Exchange online rewrites the From address to default one.
ChooseFrom application allows Office 365 users to send a message with any of their own SMTP addresses as the From address.
The application is a cloud service.

We’ve recently released a new feature: sender address rewriting aka Unconditional sender rewriting rules.

Current version: 1.0.0.1
