Office Live 365 – We Are Now Online

Okay, so five minutes after hitting the post button in Windows Live Writer our SharePoint site came online.

Now that DNS has had a chance to propagate for our new domain we are trying to get our Outlook connected.

Step 1 – Get that info in:


Step 2 – Authenticate:


Step 3 – We are connected:


Step 4 – Outlook wants to restart:


Step 5 – Outlook shows the mailbox:


Now, let’s test to see just how the system will handle spam:

With the above address being integrated into my Outlook, please feel free to e-mail me there however with Microsoft announcing that the O365 service is going live in a few days there is no guarantee on how long this beta based mailbox stays alive.

We will not pay for this service as we are already properly licensed in-house and utilize OWN’s Hosted Exchange for our client’s needs as well as our own.

So, let’s see just how long this lasts! :)
