What you need to know before buying Microsoft Office account for home and business

Microsoft recently made some changes in Office 365. Users can select between two kinds of accounts: Home and Business accounts.

Home is always linked to one person in the true sense. You will need to count all of the employees within your company when you sign up to a business account. If you don’t intend to share your files with anyone else in your office, then home is better. A home account is more suitable when you have multiple computers working. You can use the same account for each of them. On the other hand in the event that there is only two or one PCs in your office , then business is better because that way you’ll be able to share your files and folders with other users and it will be much simpler to control your files.

Email addresses Each account can contain up to five separate email addresses associated with it. These addresses are used to send principal mail. The first address is your primary address. The second address is an additional address. Home accounts do not allow this feature but business accounts do. It is possible to set up a home account and your first email will be the primary email you use. But, any subsequent emails will be sent using the same user name as the sender. This can lead to confusion since they might look as though they were sent by you even though they were delivered by someone else in the company.

Limits on size of files: The Home accounts are limited to a size of 20GB. If you’ve numerous large files to share then a business account would be the better choice as for each user and each office 365 webmail (Hotmail/Outlook) mailbox we have 1TB of storage which is virtually unlimited in terms of file size.

The primary use of a home account is for sharing emails between you and your family members. There are no restrictions regarding other things, aside from the fact that you can’t share any documents. The Business account however has no limitations whatsoever regarding sharing files , or not. However, it does not allow users to share their messages with anyone else (so the majority of users has their own email address).

Some more information There is a possibility to add up to five different individuals to one Microsoft Live/Outlook/Hotmail accounts this means that if we were to establish a new email address we would need at minimum two of these accounts in order to allow up to 10 people into one account. Business accounts do not come with this limitation and can be added as many times as you’d like.
