Setting up an alternative email for an administrator

On one of my blogs on Practical 365, I discussed the need for separate administrator accounts. In my opinion, separate administrator accounts are necessary for adequate security posture.

The question that often comes up is how you can ensure administrators still receive important emails from Microsoft 365 if their administrator account doesn’t have a mailbox.

So in this really quick blog I go over this, after I got the question on Twitter 😉

Azure AD Alternative Email

If you want to update this for the entire administrator profile, you can easily navigate to the ‘Profile’ tab of a user in Azure AD.

Here you can update the Alternative Email attribute to ensure emails are sent to the regular user account.
