…Microsoft stopped advertising like this:
You see, the problem is that you cannot in fact mix these two plans. Even though they are displayed side by side on the Microsoft website. If you actually read the details, you can see that the M plans, like the P plans, cannot be mixed with E plans.
The problem here is that most of the “Midsize” businesses I deal with actually DO require a mix of the Midsize and the Hosted Exchange Online Plan 1. They need to introduce a M Exchange Online equivalent, even if it is slightly more expensive that can be mixed with the M plan.
Right now, this is not pushing us and our customers towards the E1, E2, E3 mix, but is simply pushing us towards alternative products.
Please fix this Microsoft, and quickly!
