Capture smtp aliases in M365

Having assigned aliases would be incredibly helpful for situations where a user errantly has a license removed and needs to have aliases rebuilt. Also it would be fantastic for hunting to see who has an alias assigned to them - currently you either have to hunt one by one or else pull up powershell

    Hi Everyone! Thank you for your votes. Currently retrieving SMTP alias's is a possibility in the Microsoft 365 Inspector. This data is located in the data print under each `User` object. User[].proxyAddresses . You can also make this value viewable in the UI by enabling the Proxy Addresses column in the inspector's user data table.

    Here, try this query and turn on Change Detection.

    Users[?mail != `null`] && Users[?userType == `Member`].join(', ', [to_string(displayName), to_string(mail),to_string(proxyAddresses[])])| join(' | ' @)

    Also built off this one to check Guest accounts and also monitor for changes.

    Users[?userType == `Guest`].join(', ', [to_string(displayName), to_string(mail)])| join(' | ' @)

    Could you not create a metric for this? Users>Object>proxyAddresses

    I might work on this, it sounds like a good idea. If I can make it work I'll repost here.

    I would add that there are other situations that could lead to aliases being wiped, but just in general, it's a good way to round-out the documentation. We recently setup our first Azure AD sync with our own on-premise AD and when we did that we lost aliases for more than one user, and had to "rebuild" them from the AD side. Unfortunately the aliases were not documented so the rebuild was completely from memory.
