This configuration can be found by opening up properties for a user and selecting the Office 365 tab. From here, you can click on “Proxy Addresses,” which opens the following form:

In Easy365Manager, the “Proxy Addresses” configuration corresponds to the ‘ProxyAddresses’ attribute of the Set-ADUser PowerShell command.

The “Set-ADUser” PowerShell command serves to configure proxy addresses for Active Directory (AD) user objects:

Set-ADUser -Identity "lene.hau" -Add @{proxyAddresses=""}

It is important to note that the “proxyAddresses” attribute is a multivalued attribute, meaning it can hold multiple values simultaneously. However, care should be taken while using this command to avoid unintentional overwriting of existing values. Incorrect commands could inadvertently replace existing proxy addresses.

The foremost advantage of utilizing the “Set-ADUser” command for proxy addresses lies in its efficient management of user email addresses within the Active Directory ecosystem. By incorporating multiple proxy addresses into a single user account, organizations can streamline email communication while accommodating diverse aliases. This proves especially valuable when users hold distinct roles necessitating separate email addresses.
