What version of Office 365 do I need

I am a little confused about what comes with Office 365. Right now I am on a 2003 Server using Exchange 2003. I want to transition to Office 365 and keep the same "Public Folder" concept that Exchange 2003 has.

   What do I need to get? I am looking at Office 365 Premium but am not sure what else I need as far as Exchange goes. Outlook comes with Office 365 and I hear rumors that it has Exchange Online but I can't find out what it really comes with. What do I need to order to replicate the functions of Exchange 2003 and Public Folders?

O365 presently does NOT support the Public Folders as you desire. They indicate maybe in the future but there is not ETA and that promise has been floating for a couple of years.

They DO have SharePoint within some of their offerings which has been able to pickup the slack for many of the clients that I have assisted over the past years.

I am an O365 partner and can guide you through this. I can also hook you up with a free account with up to 25 licenses so you can test for 30 days.

The whole Office 365 affair looks a little daunting. In researching further I have come to find that I might need Exchange Online as an addition service. Is that true?

Here is what I would recommend to look at first.
Since there is going to be a lot of detail, would you mind if we switched to email conversations or voice would even be better. Send me an email at gmiller (at) geekpatrol.com and I will reply with all of my contact info. There is just no way to send this through EE.

I typically work for the client in two ways. If you signup through me, I will hold your hand through the initial phase of install, configuration and cut over. I also give you ongoing advice at no additional charge. After the service is cut over and working, I am available for customizations and administration as you require for a minimal fee.

Full disclosure:
I am a Microsoft Partner and they do pay me a commission to assist you through the decision phase and some light assistance during setups. I take that further and do a lot of the leg work for you for no additional charge, based on the size of the account. You at all times can contact Microsoft Technical support 24 hours a day and is included with the "E" level subscriptions. My goal is to build a long term relationship where I earn any additional fees by providing you with additional spec work you may need in the future.
