    Hey Guys, first post in a while, :rolleyes: been meaning to post for ages work keeping me busy :p
    our company is a Microsoft Cloud Partner :) so today I set-up our office 365 beta and at first glance it seems good :biggrin, just wondered if anyone else is trialling it yet or have experience using it yet if so what are your impressions of it?

    We use BPOS and have been getting the bumf delivered to my mailbox but to be honest I don't see much difference between them. I could be wrong though :D

    yes we have the BPOS for free 250 seats iirc for being cloud partners but being geeky having the beta makes it so much more fun xD!

    Been playing with it as well. O365 vs BPOS doesn't bring a massive amount of new stuff Exchange wise (apart from O365 running on 2010 versus BPOS running on 2007), but with O365 you do get fun stuff like Lync 2010, which is always nice.

    And there's some improvements (still being worked on) with the admin interfaces versus BPOS thanks to customer feedback.

    One thing that I never liked was the storage allowance for SharePoint (5GB) compared to the outlook storage (25GB) just seems silly
