Growth: Office 365 Now Supports up to 150 MB Email Size

Growth: Office 365 Now Supports up to 150 MB Email Size

In the past, users of Outlook have been restricted to attachments onl25 MB or less in total.

However, for those who prefer to attach all files directly to an email through Outlook at once, there is good news: the maximum message size has increased to 150 MB.

 

It is important to note, however, that the administrator is responsible for changing the default settings themselves and users are still set at a maximum of 25 MB unless changed. It is now an option to choose the size setting ranging from 1 MB up to the new 150 MB. There are even ways for restricting or allowing certain sizes to distinct users or groups.

For more information and details about how to change the settings check out the steps here

 


If you would like to learn more about your Office 365 options we would be happy to walk you through it. Give us a call at 800-900-1150 or contact us here.

Comparing Office 365 E1 Plan vs. the Core CAL

 

 

Many clients, especially those with Enterprise Agreements, are being asked by Microsoft to convert their licensing agreements into Office 365 based subscription solutions and are confused by their options.  This comparison is for clients who currently own just the Core CAL (client access license) and are considering moving to an Office 365 E1 plan with a Bridge CAL.  

Let’s start with what is the same.

Both E1 and the Core CAL give you the right to run Exchange Standard CAL, Skype for Business Standard CAL (formerly known as Lync), and SharePoint Standard CAL on premise, in your own data center for your users.  Both plans would require the requisite Server licenses purchases. 

The Bridge CAL completes the traditional functionality of the Core CAL by licensing you for a Windows CAL, System Center Configuration Manager CML, and the Microsoft EndPoint Protection Antivirus service.

What are the real differences between Office Pro Plus and Office 365 Pro Plus?

Office Pro Plus – is the version that is sold in volume licensing.  It is the default package when purchasing under an EA agreement, Select, or new Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA). 

Office 365 Pro Plus – is the version that is sold via Office 365.  Subscriptions for Office 365 can either be purchased directly from the web portal or on a traditional licensing agreement like an Enterprise Agreement, Select, or new MPSA.  It frequently is sold as part of the E3 or E4 packages.  

While the majority of the features between the software packages are the same, there are some key differences to think about when you are making your purchase.

Microsoft Sway for iPhone is now available

Sway for iPhone Rolls Out to New Markets

Sway is an application that focuses on productivity in a mobile and cloud-oriented world. The app assists with pulling together content, formatting, and then sharing it via various media channels and social networks. Microsoft has expanded its rollout of Sway to many countries where English is an official language. A full list of countries where Sway is available can be found at the bottom of the Sway for iPhone blog from January 8, 2015.

What is Sway?

Sway is a single interface application that provides users with access to all of their social networks and media channels at once. The app lets users create, format, and publish content, including links, images, and videos. Users can create and share their ideas with anyone via the Sway app, and can pull content from anywhere. Sway is integrated with social networks and the internet, as well as OneDrive and the device that it is used on, allowing users to gather information effortlessly when creating a post, often referred to as a “sway”.

Sway for iPhone

What is the VALUE of Sway?

Sway can be used in a multitude of ways.  It is great for personal use if you want to make a highlight of a vacation that you took and send it to a friend.  Maybe you are helping to plan a wedding and you want to send a variety of themed ideas to the bride.  Sway has a very real business application as well.  If you are putting together a business presentation for a potential client, a Sway can be built to include videos, images and relevant websites.  Maybe you are planning executive travel and you want to put together an interactive itinerary for your boss.  Sway is great for sparking ideas, business collaboration and knowledge updates, all from the device you like to use, in the place that you like to use it. 

The Mobile Authoring Experience

Users can log into Sway for iPhone with the same user account information they use on the web, synchronizing Sway across all devices. Sway lets users create content that is polished and interactive to share with others, and has an adjustable interface for viewing on any device. Users can combine text and pictures into a layout creator that will finalize the Sway’s appearance, and can modify existing Sways from their iPhone.

Voice-to-text capabilities are accessible on this application, making it even easier to add content on the go. Sway has instant links to share through social media or email, and can be viewed by anyone without additional software needs. The interface also makes it easy to change the layout and formatting features with a “Mood” button, automatically adapting the content to a layout the user desires. Click-and-drag features make changes and adjustments easy, and Sways can be created and modified offline. The application will sync changes once the internet connection is restored.

Global Rollout is the Goal

Microsoft is slowly rolling out Sway for iPhone to English-speaking users in an attempt to perfect the application before it releases a global edition. The goal is to bring in more users to improve the application experience in as many ways as possible before a complete rollout to all iPhone users.
