I currently pay $5/mo for
Office 365 Business Essentials and I have one email account under my domain (ie.
email@example.com). I need to create a 2nd email address, whose only purpose is to send me (
firstname.lastname@example.org) a notification that someone has paid for our app. In other words, when someone pays for the app,
email@example.com will send
firstname.lastname@example.org an email notification. That's it.
From my understanding, if I want to create a 2nd email address with my domain, I need to pay Microsoft an additional $5/month. I don't want to pay $5/month for an email that will send me an email about 3-5 times per month and possibly receive an email once every three months.
Office 365 Business Essentials, does it make sense that a 2nd email address with its own password will cost an additional $5/month?
2) I don't mind using my current email address to send these emails to myself. The problem is that it has to have a different password. Can I create a mailbox alias or a shared mailbox with a different password? Or maybe I can use my email address but somehow use a different password for this purpose?
What other options do I have? I want to continue using
Office 365 Business Essentials, but I don't want to pay another $5. Eventually, I'll need to add two more emails, which means $20/month.
