Change default email address Office 365 group (Manual)

Office 365 Groups are easy to create. However, changing the primary domain name when creating the group might not be that easy from the GUI. However, with Power Shell you can change this easily.

First we will need to open a Power Shell Window, and connect with Exchange Online.

$Credential = Get-Credential

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri -Credential $Credential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection

Import-PSSession $Session

Next, we just need to change the 2 value’s below, and run it. After running, you don’t get a confirmation. It might take up to 30 minutes before changes are visible in all Office 365 and/or Azure portals.

Set-UnifiedGroup –Identity "Group name" –PrimarySmtpAddress
