Quick answers that’ll help make your Office 365 experience even better.
Office 365 combines the familiar Microsoft Office desktop suite with cloud-based versions of Microsoft’s next-generation communications and collaboration services so you can be productive from virtually anywhere through the Internet. Specifically, Office 365 provides the newest versions of the Microsoft tools you’re familiar with — Outlook 2016, Word 2016, Excel 2016, PowerPoint 2016 — and introduces you to several others that you’ll soon find indispensable, like OneDrive for Business, and OneNote 2016.
Your new mailbox will be much larger than what you are used to. It will be 50 GB. It is quite an increase from your current mailbox size – and you’ll be able to send attachments up to 25 MB!.
OneDrive for Business is an online storage space in the cloud.. Use it to store your work files across multiple devices with ease and security. Share your files with other users of OneDrive for Business, and edit Office documents together in real-time with Office Online.

Two-factor authentication is an extra layer of security that requires not only your username and password to access applications, but an additional validation factor such as an authentication code sent by SMS, or verification by a phone app. Going forward, you will be prompted for the additional validation factor when you log in to Office 365 from a new device or when logging in from outside our company network.
