Windows 10: Sending Email From Outlook.com Aliases in Windows 10 Mail App Solved

    Sending Email From Outlook.com Aliases in Windows 10 Mail App


    According to the Mail App 'What's New' details, it says the following:

    What's new in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10

    New features in the latest update:
    - Send email from Outlook.com aliases
    - Open & save Calendar .ics attachments in email
    - See multiple upcoming events on the wide Calendar live tile
    - Drag and drop calendar events to reschedule them (PC only)
    - Print Month view in Calendar
    - Use Mail and Calendar on HoloLens

    According to the details it should work, however, it doesn't work for me. Are there any non-insiders who can clarify whether they're able to send email from an Outlook.com alias in their desktop Mail App?

    It works OK for me on Windows 10 Mobile, however I'm not seeing any drop-down box in the desktop app.

    This feature only seems to be available to insiders at the moment.

    Works fine for on the desktop - running 14393.82 in the Mail app - don't ever use it due to having outlook 2016 installed.

    not available to me on the mobile though - running 14393.67
