In Office 365 Exchange Online you may create an alias on a user in order to “translate the username better” e.g.

for the user hshfs34@haukeberg.com might not make sense and mabye the name somehow does not Sync correctly which could make it hard to find the user.
Add an Alias: havard.Siegel@Haukeberg.com

When you share files you may look up the alias in the search dialog Box like this:
