  • As with Live@edu email, you can change your theme and access common functionality seen across the board. The Outlook Web App is simply the looking glass to your email.

    Note: to see Outlook Web App (Release 5) in action, head over to this screenshot gallery. The screenshots are exactly the same.

  • You can access the same settings as students would in Live@edu, such as POP/IMAP settings and other Exchange functionality. Users of Office 365 are also given 25GB of email storage, unlike students who are only given 5GB.

    Note: to see Outlook Web App (Release 5) in action, head over to this screenshot gallery. The screenshots are exactly the same.

  • Connecting your email to a desktop application like Outlook 2010 is simple with Exchange connected. All folders are automatically up to date, emails are pushed through, and you can access all of the functionality that the Outlook Web App provides but from your desktop.

    365 has a nice interface and MS has definitely improved some things. However, at $72/user/yr with Sharepoint the only office app included, it's not enough value compared to Google Apps for Business.
