Recipients in EOP
Applies to: Exchange Online Protection
Topic Last Modified: 2013-06-10
In Microsoft Exchange Online Protection(EOP), recipients are comprised of two groups, Users and Contacts:
- Users Users are the recipients within your EOP managed domains. You can create transport rules for specific users and assign users roles in your organization. Users with management role group privileges can access the Exchange admin center (EAC) and perform certain management tasks. To learn more about user roles and how to assign user roles in EOP, see Manage Admin Role Group Permissions in EOP.
- Contacts Contacts represent recipients outside of your EOP managed domains who can be displayed in the shared address book and other address lists. You can use contacts when creating transport rules. Contacts have email addresses outside your EOP organization, and they can't sign in to the EAC.
