We are able offer the Microsoft Office365 serivce on a monthly subscription basis; whether you are just for Exchange email or the complete package including email and the latest Microsoft Office software for Windows or Mac then we have a service for you.
How the Service Works
The Office365 email service is a fully integrated system for your email, calendar, contacts, tasks and notes. All of your data is stored within the Microsoft network.
Any computer, smart phone or tablet that the email account is configured on synchronises with the server; what this means is that if you are away from your computer and you send an email from your smart phone, when you get back to your computer the email that you sent will also be in the sent items on the computer. Another example, if you are checking your email on your tablet and delete or read a couple of emails, then when you look at the email on your computer or smart phone, those same emails will either show as deleted or read.
The system is ideal for anyone who has their email on multiple devices and wants the convenience of synchronised email, calendars, contact, tasks and notes.
With each mailbox you get:
› 50GB Mailbox
› Outlook Web App
› Mobile Email 'push' Technology
› Shared Calendars and Contacts
› 10 Email Aliases
› Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus Scanning
› 1TB OneDrive Storage
If you have the Office365 Business, Office365 Business Premium, Office365 ProPlus or Office365 Enterprise E3 package then you also have access to the desktop pakcages, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher and OneNote. This are downloaded from the Office365 portal and installed on your Windows or Mac computer.
You can install each users account on upto 5 devices, however all the devices need to be used by that user. So for example, you cannot have 3 people in an office each using a different computer and install the software on all 3 computers using just one users account.
You can also mix the types of account you have; so if you have 3 users and 2 of them already have Microsoft Office on their computer, but the 3rd people does not, you can have 2 users with the basic email accounts (Office365 Business Essentials) and the 3rd users has the email account plus the Microsoft Office packages (Office365 Business Premium or Enterprice E3).
What you Need
To use the service on a Windows computer or laptop you can use either the Outlook Web App or you will need Microsoft Outlook 2010, 2013 or 2016.
The system is compatible with Mac Mail and also Outlook for Mac 2011 or 2016.
Smart phones and Tablets
iPhones and iPads - the system is fully compatible with iPhones and iPads running ios 6 or higher. iPhones and iPads will also synchronise your Notes and Tasks.
Android and Blackberry Smart phones and Tablets - devices running Android version 4 or higher, or Blackberry version 10 or higher are compatible with the system for email, contacts and calendar synchronisation.
What the Service Costs
The cost is based on a per user/mailbox basis. The various packages are:
Business Essentials – email service only – £4.70
Business – Microsoft Office software only – £9.50
Business Premium – Email service and Microsoft Office software – £10.40
ProPlus – Microsoft Office software including Microsoft Access only – £11.10
Enterprise E3 – Email service and Microsoft Office Software including Access – £15.70
For example, if you have three email addresses, info@yourdomain, sales@yourdomain and support@yourdomain and you want to be able to send and receive email for all three addresses then you would need the Business Essentials package for three mailboxes, costing £14.10 per month.
However, if the main email address used is info@ and you are happy to send all email from the info@ address then the sales@ and support@ email addresses can be setup as aliases of info@. This means that any email sent to sales@ and support@ will be delivered to info@, but when you reply to the email it will be returned to the sender from the info@ email address; therefore the cost would be £4.70 per month as there is only one mailbox.
All prices are per mailbox, per month, plus VAT. The service can be paid for on a monthly, quarterly, biannually and yearly.
