Send as permissions versus Authorized send as Addresses

You may be wondering what the difference is between the Send as Addresses tool and the 'send as' permissions mentioned on this page. The difference comes down to what accounts are able to be added as send as addresses. On the this page, users must be in Office 365 and can only add other Office 365 accounts because that page adds an Office 365 specific permission from one account to another. The 'Send as Addresses' page is used to add authorization via SMTPAuth from one account to another. What this means is that users can add external email addresses here (e.g. WiscMail as well as say, Gmail).
