Again, an updated set of the Office 365 for Enterprise Service Descriptions. Just as in JanuaryFebruary, and early March, I did a comparison of the changes. All major updates are listed below. The document that has received significant updates is (again) the Service Description for Exchange Online, and a smaller change was done to the SharePoint Online SD.

Exchange Online

•	Outlook 2003 via POP and IMAP only o	POP and IMAP protocols offer email-only access with a substantially reduced set of functionality

Mailbox size	1 gigabyte (GB) **** Outlook Web App  (regular and light versions)	Yes POP	Yes IMAP	No Outlook Anywhere (MAPI)	No Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync	Yes****

****The availability of a 1 GB mailbox and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync® for a Kiosk user will vary. These updates are expected to be deployed to all customers in April 2012.  However, until these updates are deployed, a Kiosk user will continue to have a 500 MB mailbox and no Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync® access.

Outlook 2003 Outlook 2003 is notonly supported for use with Exchange Online. via POP or IMAP. Using Outlook 2003 with POP or IMAP enables standard email functionality, but does have key limitations including: •	No calendar information •	No free/busy information •	No Global Address List •	No push email •	When connecting via POP, all messages will be downloaded to the client and there will be no synchronization between multiple computers or devices (such as between a laptop and a phone)
