Microsoft Office Account for Home and Business

Recently Microsoft has made some changes to Office 365. End users are able to choose between two types of accounts: Home or Business accounts.

In a real sense the home can only be associated with one person. If you choose to start a business account you’ll need all your employees. If you’re not looking to share your files with anyone else in your office, then your home is the best option. If you have multiple computers at work then the home account is ideal since you can have the same email address on all of them. If you have only two or three computers in your workplace, then a corporate account is better. This will allow you to transfer files to other users and facilitate managing them.

Maximum 5 email addresses per account. These addresses will be used to send principal mail. The first address is the primary address. The second address is an alternative address. This feature is not available for accounts at home, however it is available for business accounts. You can set up a home account and the first email you receive will be your primary. But, any subsequent emails will utilize the same user name as the sender. This can cause confusion as they may appear like they were sent by your account even though they were sent by someone else within the company.

File size limit: Home account has a limit of 20GB. If you have large files to send the files to, a business account would be more suitable. Each user is able to access 1TB of storage space through 365 webmail (Hotmail/Outlook) that is virtually unlimited in file size.

Home accounts are designed to be used for email sharing between you and family members. It is not possible to share documents however, there are no other limitations. The Business account however has no limitations whatsoever on whether you can share files , or not. However, it doesn’t allow users to share emails with other people (so all users has their own email address).

More information: Microsoft Live/Outlook/Hotmail accounts can be linked up to five users. This means that to create a brand new address it is necessary to have at least two accounts. Business accounts don’t limit this and can be added to as many as you require.
