Support for email aliases
Would be great to have account support for email aliases per provider.

Put the aliases from my outlook.com back in my From selector.
I used to be able to configure the From email address. I moved to an outlook.com account with a personalised domain name to make things simpler. Now I have to use OWA to send and email from me!
Pleased to see we now have the ability to add iCloud accounts to the new Outlook "using Microsoft sync technology." However, my iCloud default e-mail address (my apple ID) is not the e-mail address i've been sharing with contacts for the past 10 years. Would be great to be able to select one of the e-mail aliases set up on my iCloud account.
iCloud aliases support was the main reason, for which I've chosen Outlook for Android, but after it suddenly stopped working I have no reason to use this app anymore. I don't use my iCloud login as an email address and I can only read emails on my mobile, but can't send them.
Aliases support didn't work perfectly, because even if I had an alias marked as default, it never appeared as default when replying an email, but at least I had a chance to choose it from the list.
The use of aliases if very common, in part of security reasons. Outlook for Mac is one of the only e-mail clients on macOS that does not support aliases at all, not even for Outlook.com or Microsoft Exchange accounts. Outlook for iOS DOES support aliases. Outlook for Windows and Android support aliases. Outlook.com's web interface supports aliases. You already have the technology and you have the modular backend to support aliases. Please deploy them! Support should be automatic: by virtue of adding my Outlook.com account to Outlook for Mac, all my aliases should automatically appear and be available without further steps.

This has been working faultlessly for years on Outlook for Mobile and suddenly, late 2019, support was apparently dropped. it will sometimes work again after a complete reinstall of the app but soon stops working again!
