key features and components of the Microsoft 365 Email service

Here are some key features and components of the Microsoft 365 Email service:

  1. Microsoft Exchange Online: Microsoft Exchange Online is the cloud-based version of the Exchange Server, Microsoft’s email, calendar, and contact management server. It provides business-class email functionality with features such as shared calendars, contacts, tasks, and more.
  2. Email Hosting: Microsoft 365 Email provides email hosting services for businesses and organizations. Users can have email addresses associated with their custom domain, and emails are hosted on Microsoft’s servers in the cloud.
  3. Outlook Web App (OWA): Users can access their emails, calendars, and contacts through a web-based interface known as Outlook Web App. This allows users to access their email and productivity tools from any device with an internet connection.
  4. Integration with Office Apps: Microsoft 365 Email integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft 365 applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. This integration allows for collaborative editing and sharing of documents directly from within the email environment.
  5. Security and Compliance: Microsoft 365 Email includes security features such as anti-spam and anti-malware protection. Additionally, it provides tools for compliance, data loss prevention (DLP), and eDiscovery to help organizations meet regulatory requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is included with Microsoft 365?

Microsoft 365 includes best-in-class Office apps, like Word, Excel, and Teams and more, plus intelligent cloud services, and Outlook, the industry-leading secure email.

What happened to Office 365 plans?

Office 365 plans are now Microsoft 365 business plans. Microsoft 365 includes everything you know in Office 365, including best-in-class Office apps, intelligent cloud services, and advanced security. There are no price or feature changes, only an updated name.

My business has an existing Office 365 business subscription. What does the change to Microsoft 365 mean for me?

No action is needed from you. Your Office 365 subscription will automatically be renamed to Microsoft 365. You will see the name of your subscription update to the new name across your Admin Portal and monthly billing statements.

Why should I buy Microsoft 365 from PowerHoster if I already have Office apps on my desktop?

If you purchase our Advanced Security or Business Professional plan, you’ll get the latest Office apps, featuring the latest versions of the desktop applications you know and love — Excel, Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, Access (PC only), OneNote and Publisher. And whenever Office apps are updated, you will automatically receive the latest upgrade at no additional charge so that you always have the current version of Office apps.

Our Microsoft 365 plans give you the ability to easily and securely share and collaborate on documents using OneDrive for Business and Online Office apps. With Online Business Essentials and Business Professional you can also create a domain-based email address and share calendars and contacts with people inside and outside of your company. Finally, unlike the Microsoft 365 you currently have, Microsoft 365 from GoDaddy gives you real-time meeting and screen sharing.

With the Advanced Security or Business Professional plans, can I download the 5 installs of Office on my employees’ computers?

The desktop Office app licenses that come with the Advanced Security or Business Professional plans are associated with an individual user’s account, including that individual’s sign in and password information. Downloading a copy onto an employee’s computer would give them access to your documents.

We highly recommend that anyone in your organization needing the latest desktop version of Office apps have their own Advanced Security or Business Professional account. 

Will the Excel, PowerPoint and Word programs I already have installed on my computer work with my cloud storage and Office Online?

OneDrive for Business Professional cloud storage and Office Online work best with the latest version of Microsoft 365. With these versions of Office apps, you can select files stored in the cloud and edit them using your desktop applications instead of Office Online. Simply open the file you wish to edit, click ‘Edit in Word/Excel/PowerPoint’ and when you click ‘Save’ within those applications, your document will sync back to your storage.

Will the latest version of Office apps work on my computer?

To use the 5 desktop downloads you get with the Advanced Security or Business Professional plan, you must be on one of the following operating systems:

PC: Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2019 or Windows Server 2016.

Mac: the most current version of macOS and the previous two versions

If you are running a different operating system, remember that you can still use Office Online, browser-based versions of your favorite Microsoft tools like Excel, Word or PowerPoint, which are included with the Online Business Essentials or Business Professional plans.

I am part of a larger organization – can I use Microsoft 365 from PowerHoster?

Our plans are designed for businesses that require fewer than 300 accounts. You may purchase up to 300 accounts of each plan (up to 900 accounts total.) If you have questions, just give us a call at 1-866-882-5482. Our award-winning team is here to help 24/7.

What is the cloud?

Working or storing files in ‘the cloud’ means that your files are stored securely on the Internet — not on your hard drive — so you can access them anytime, anywhere, from almost any device connected to the Web.

You don’t need to buy additional software and you’re not dependent on your computer to get work done. Plus, since your documents are stored on secure servers, you have peace of mind knowing that, even if your hard drive crashes or you spill coffee on your computer, your documents and programs are safe and accessible from any web browser.

I have a Mac. Can I still use Microsoft 365 from PowerHoster? What about the Advanced Security and Business Professional plans?

Yes. Office Online is compatible with Mac. And if you choose the Advanced Security or Business Professional plan, you’ll be able to download the latest version of Office apps for Mac, which is fully compatible with MacOS.

What is Office for iPad?

Office for iPad includes the full-featured, touch-friendly versions of the most popular Office apps: Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Office for iPad is available with the Advanced Security and Business Professional plans, which include a license that’s valid for up to 5 iPads or Windows tablets, as well as up to 5 PCs or Macs, for a single user.

What is Office Online?

Office Online features versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote that are designed to use within a web browser. You can access Office Online from your cloud storage to create new files, edit existing files, share and collaborate online with clients or colleagues.

What is online document collaboration?

With our Online Business Essentials and Business Professional plans, documents created or stored in your OneDrive for Business cloud storage can be simultaneously edited with others inside or outside your company – anyone with a link to a document can make edits at the same time as you. You can even see each other’s edits as you go, so you’ll always be on the same page with the latest version, all without having to send documents back and forth via email.
