Dear All,

After releasing office 365, I want to ask for the following:

2-      Can I connect blackberry smartphones with office 365 so they can send and receive emails?
3-      Can I host my public website in office 365?

Office 365 combines the online offereings.  It is available in different configurations to implement any combination of these services.
2-      Can I connect blackberry smartphones with office 365 so they can send and receive emails?
Blackberry smartphones can fully participate with Office365 accounts for email, contacts, and calendaring.  There is a FAQ to address this on the web site.
3-      Can I host my public website in office 365?
You can post a public facing website in Office365.  To offer a specific YES for your public website would require knowing more about what server services you require.

Additionally, Office365 includes SharePoint Access services so you can publish Access web databases to the Sharepoint.   You can use SharePoint Designer for workflow and site development, too.

Microsoft offers a free trial for you to validate all of this before committing.  Give it a try.

3. the answer is NO. you are given a sharepoint website so unless you want to migrate to sharepoint, the answer is no.

Thank you accepting my solution.

BTW, ve3ofa is incorrect.   Yes, you can use the public facing website and SharePoint.   There is an option to use your own web development tools.  So, you do not HAVE to migrate to SharePoint.   You do not HAVE to use the public facing web page, either.
