I have an exchange online account:
eh@mybusiness.com

I want to change the account to be:
bee@mybusiness.com

I then I want to immediately add the alias eh@mybusiness.com to the account so it will continue to receive emails while we phase out that address.

Can I immediately add the previous email address ass an alias after changing it so I don't miss any emails?

Thanks.

    No need to remove it.
    Simply add the new address: bee@mybusiness.com
    then make it the primary Reply Address and both addresses will now be associated with that account
