And with services hosted by Microsoft, you can have peace of mind knowing that experts are managing your IT and that your services will be available when you need them.

Sign In Made Simple One small but immensely helpful part of BPOS is the Microsoft Online Services Sign In tool, a sort of dashboard applet the gives end-users one-click access to their BPOS services. From the AdministrationCenter site (admin.microsoftonline.com), you can see the Sign In tool available for download in the Downloads area. Simply download the tool, run the installer, and walk through the wizard. This can be repeated on every end-user’s system. The one instance when you may not want to use the Sign In applet is if multiple users share the same system.
Exchange/E-Mail E-mail and calendar functions — Exchange Online delivers e-mail services including spam filtering, anti-virus protection, and synchronization of mobile devices. Through Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, Outlook 2007 and Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access, you can use the advanced e-mail, calendar, contact, and task management features of Exchange Online. Office Outlook Web Access enables users to access their e-mail messages from almost any browser—whether the user is in the office or on the road.

Office Communications Office Communications Online delivers robust instant messaging (IM) and presence functionality that enables real-time person-to-person communication via text, voice and video.
On the software side, the operating system is simple enough: Windows XP (Professional or Tablet Edition, both SP2), Windows Vista (Business, Enterprise, Ultimate, or Home, all SP1), or MacOS X 10.5.
For browsers, Microsoft recommends at least Internet Explorer 7, Safari 3.1.2 (on OS X), or Firefox 3, although Firefox won’t support the Microsoft Online Services Sign In tool.
Email clients must be Outlook 2007 or Entourage 2008, and the platform supports Windows Mobile 6, Nokia E and N series, and iPhone (firmware 2.0) handsets.
