Outlook.com (past Live Mail / Hotmail) allows creation of email aliases associated to one main account, which is very convenient.

Using Exchange ActiveSync with an iOS device works really well on all tasks, but one can't send/reply emails using one of those aliases.

Is there any productive way of using these outlook.com aliases on an iOS device?

I haven't found any actual answer for my question, but instead found a very good alternative.

Basically @icloud.com accounts also allow the creation of aliases that can be used in all iOS Mail apps, with one particular advantage: the alias allows changing the name of the recipient as well, something @outlook.com account aliases does not allow.

You can create @icloud.com aliases using the web interface options.
