Hosted Exchange to E1 Plan RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a prospect that would like to start small with only Hosted Exchange but before they do that they would like to be sure that they can add features and say move to E1 Plan.

    Can anyone tell me for sure one way or the other if

    1. Is it possible

    2. What is involved

    3. Is there added cost for migration services

    Thanks.

  • Hi Bill, it´s possible to move inside E plans but not between P and E plans. For example:

    If you have an Exchange Online subscription you can upgrade to E1, E2, E3 and E4 plans, but not downgrade to Office365 P1, P2 and P3 plans, and viceversa.

    The differences are in the services available (exchange, sharepoint, Office Web Apps...) and the option to get the latest version of Office Professional Plus and assign the license to users inside the subscription.

    You can also mix licenses, because maybe you have some users that need office but some others that don´t, or even sharepoint, lync, etc...

    Anyway, here are some of the differences between the plans:

    I highly recomend the E plans because they´re more complete :)

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi Alberto

    I'm gonna jump in here and ask some questions if that's okay.

    What is the process of upgrading from "Exchange Online (Plan 1)" to "Microsoft Office 365 (Plan E1)"? These names are what I can see from within the Partner Create PO screen. How would I as an administrator do this for my users?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Mike, simply buy the license and assign it to the desired user by using the subscription button, add more licenses, and once you finish the buying process, go to the users area and assign it to the user you want to inside the details. Hope i answered your question...
