Office 365 Groups change Primary SMTP Address

Several settings can only be changed via PowerShell.

One of this in Office 365 Unified Groups is the SMTP Primary Address.

First you run PowerShell in Admin Mode and login to Exchange Online:
Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
$credential = Get-Credential
Connect-MsolService -Credential $credential
loading the Exchange Online Module:
$exchangeSession = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri "" -Credential $credential -Authentication "Basic" -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $exchangeSession -DisableNameChecking

Next listing all your Office 365 Unified Groups:

Get-UnifiedGroup | fl name,alias,*smtp*

Once you identified the group, you change the SMTP:

Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity sfbusergroup-cologne -PrimarySmtpAddress

Further more, you can change the all other attributes.

Outbound Call ID Overwrite with Call Queues (CallingLineIdentity)

As usual, the way how you can modify more parameter is strictly by using PowerShell. I need stepping into one PowerShell scripting to present the outbound calling ID overwrite.

For example, if a Call Queue represents a Support Team, you want that each dedicated person in this team to not expose their DID. You need to configure a Distribution Group for those team members used in the Call Queue. Next step is creating a “Calling Line Identity” policy, where you enable the User Overwrite. The Service Numberyou are defining should be this you have assigned to the Call Queue! The Calling ID Substitute should be the name of the team.
New-CsCallingLineIdentity -Identity "SupportTeam01" -CallingIdSubstitute "Support Team Office 365" -ServiceNumber 498912345678 -EnableUserOverride $True –Verbose
Note :
The key here is not to use “+” before the Service Number assigned to AA or call Queue to make it work:

do this -ServiceNumber 4989123456…
