What is Plus Addressing in Exchange Online?
Plus addressing is an email feature in Exchange Online that allows users to create an individualized address—known as a plus address—for each recipient. For example, when sending an email to email@example.com [firstname.lastname@example.org], a plus address recipient could be email@example.com [firstname.lastname@example.org]. This is especially useful for organizations that want to track incoming emails to specific recipients or when sending messages to multiple recipients.
Benefits of Plus Addressing in Exchange Online
