Change the domain on my Office 365 email account
Sometimes you need to change the domain associated with your address. Before you can change your domain, it must:
- Be registered with GoDaddy.
- Be registered in the same account as your Office 365 email plan.
- Have an active zone file for the GoDaddy domain and be in the same account as your Office 365 email plan.

- To continue to send and receive email, you'll need to remove your old email address from your devices and add your new one.
- Add my Office 365 email address to my desktop
- Add my Office 365 email address to my mobile phone
- If you change the username, it automatically creates an alias (or a forward) of the previous username so you won't miss any emails sent to the old email address.
