Migrating a large email store to Office 365

My big email switch: Why I picked Office 365 over Google Apps
The bizarre moral of my migration story: I would actually face fewer service interruptions and more service continuity for my existing mission-critical Google services if I switched to Microsoft Office.

Apparently, Microsoft takes this Office 365 support thing seriously
I cannot over-emphasize how important good support is, especially when you can no longer lay your own hands on the server. I also can't over-emphasize how impressed I've become with Microsoft's support for Office 365.

    2) Have you tried faxing from your MFP using google voice?
