This procedure will show you how to achieve the reconfiguration.

Configure a forward email address:

2. Create a new forward mailbox with the initial distribution list email address. To achieve this, create a user account and assign a mailbox to it

4. Grant your own email account Send As permission on the newly created forward mailbox. To proceed, use this procedure and check the 'Send as permission' instead of 'Full access permission'.
