Change Error Report Email Destination for DirSync

For several customers we have configured the Directory Synchronization for Offcice365.

In most situations DirSync reports some Active Directory issues during synchronization, which is delivered by e-mail.

Although most error report and notification are sent to the Global Administrators, the DirSync error will only be delivered to the Technical Contact email address. To configure the technical contact for your tenant you can perform the following steps.

1. Open the Office365 Management Portal

2. Click on the name of your Company (in the upper right for O365 new-style, in the upper left for O365 old-style)

3. Update the technical contant e-mail address and press Save

  1. You saved my day 😉

    • It’s such a hidden place to modify this company information!

  2. Thanks!!! So easy but a little bit hard to find. Not intuitive, i think.

    Does anyone know if there are requirements for this email address? Does it need to have any Office365 permissions? We’re having issues getting the alert to go to the email address we need it to.

    • So far as I know, there are no requirements. Note that You only get a Notification of something that went wrong!

    hello, can you add more than one email address?

    • Unfortunately not, unless you use a distributiongroup.
