Apologies if I have posted this in the wrong section of the forum. :(

Hopefully this is a straight forward question but its not obvious from Microsoft information.

When signing up for Office 365 you create an ID which is something similar to bob@rsvp.onmicrosoft.com. Normally you use your own name (Bob)and your existing domain (RSVP).

In an organisation with a high changeover of staff often the person who creates the ID moves on. Is it permissible to use a generic name e.g. admin which is not personal and won't change? The ID would therefore be something like admin@rsvp.onmicrosoft.com. As this email does not actually exist presumably as part of the sign up process we would need to enter a real email address for billing and subscription notification purposes, or does the initial sign in HAVE to be a real and active account?

Also I appreciate this creates an initial Office 365 email address but does this count as the first "User" i.e. if you pay for 2 subscriptions is this original email counted as one of the subscriptions. Later on when email is migrated to Office 365 the two accounts required would be accounts@rsvp.0nmicrosoft.com (reducing to accounts@rsvp.co.uk) and info@rsvp.onmicrosoft.com (info@rsvp.co.uk). The admin@rsvp.co.uk would be fictitious and only use for sign in.

I hope I have explained myself clearly. In essence I am trying to provide detailed instructions to someone to create the accounts and subscriptions and its difficult without actually sitting beside them when they sign up.
