Hello - I'd like to use Outlook on my mac and iPhone. I am an iCloud email user but I have several aliases.

Looking in preferences there doesnt seem to be anywhere to add the alias so I can send / receive from it

I think I read something where it USED to be in Outlook but got pulled

Anyone using aliases worked out a workaround?

Thanks

Been a while since I fiddled with Outlook but as I recall, you could use AN Alias with Outlook app - basically you set up the email on the primary account, then once it's working you go into Preferences > Accounts in Outlook, and change the email to the alias you want to send with. Of course, you're receiving all the aliases anyway so send is the only thing to worry about.

What Outlook doesn't let you do, but Mac/iOS Mail does, is change Aliases on the fly.

Tried on iOS app but couldn’t flip the address :(
