Certain Office 365 plans include hosted “Exchange Online” which is business class email that allows you to stay connected wherever you are.

Office 365 syncs emails, calendars, and contact information across your devices (computers, android based devices, apple devices, and Blackberries) in real time. So it’s up to date, no matter what device is in your hand.

Worry-free, clean, and ad-free inbox: spend your time communicating—not managing email accounts, worrying about how to protect your email and privacy, or slogging through an inbox cluttered with ads. With a simplified admin center and built-in security, Office 365 takes the work out of managing your email.

Built-in tools for managing: you can access the admin center from anywhere to set up new user emails, restore recently deleted accounts, create custom scripts, and you can wipe your data from lost or stolen devices remotely to prevent unauthorized access to your information. No need for planned backups or maintenance as Microsoft Data Center staff take care of this included in the price.

Built-In Email Anti-Spam/ Email Anti-virus Protection is included in all Microsoft Hosted Exchange Plans and is called Exchange Online Protection. Five financially backed Microsoft SLAs (Service Level Agreements) attest to a high quality of service, including protection from 100% of known email born viruses and 99% of spam. No email is lost or bounced by automatically queuing email if the destination email server becomes unavailable for any reason. Globally load-balanced network of datacenters helps to ensure a 99.999% network uptime. This is one of the reasons that Office 365 Hosted Exchange is one of our recommended solutions.

In some plans, you have email archiving capabilities for legal discovery and compliance, plus eDiscovery to identify, hold, and analyze data across your business.

All plans* include a 50GB mailbox and support 25MB attachments. Users can connect the following versions of Outlook* (included in some plans) to their business-class email, so they can use the rich client application they already know: the latest version of Outlook, Outlook 2010, Outlook 2007 (with slightly limited functionality), Outlook 2011 for Mac, and Outlook 2008 for Mac. *This does not include Exchange Online Kiosk or Office 365 Enterprise K1.

Microsoft Online Advanced Mailbox Threat Protection

Microsoft Online Advanced Mailbox Threat Protection (ATP) is included in the E5 plan offering, and is available as an adder on the following plans: Exchange Online Plan 1, Exchange Online Plan 2, Exchange Online Kiosk, Exchange Online Protection, Office 365 Business Essentials, Office 365 Business Premium, Office 365 Enterprise E1, Office 365 Enterprise E2, Office 365 Enterprise E3, Office 365 Enterprise E4, Office 365 Enterprise K1, Office 365 Enterprise K2, Office 365 Education. $2.50/mailbox.

With Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection, you can protect your mailboxes against new, sophisticated attacks in real time. By protecting against unsafe attachments and expanding protection against malicious links, it complements the security features of Exchange Online Protection to provide better zero-day protection.

Protect against unsafe attachments
With Safe Attachments, you can prevent malicious attachments from impacting your messaging environment, even if their signatures are not known. All suspicious content goes through a real-time behavioral malware analysis that uses machine learning techniques to evaluate the content for suspicious activity. Unsafe attachments are sandboxed in a detonation chamber before being sent to recipients. The advantage is a malware free and cleaner inbox with better zero-day attack protection.

Protect your environment when users click malicious links
Exchange Online Protection provides protection against malicious links by scanning content. Safe Links expands on this by protecting your environment when users click a link. While the content is being scanned, the URLs are rewritten to go through Office 365. The URLs are examined in real time, at the time a user clicks them. If a link is unsafe, the user is warned not to visit the site or informed that the site has been blocked. Reporting is available, so administrators can track which users clicked a link and when they clicked it.
