Microsoft licencing has put my head in a spin. I can't get enough clarity from Microsoft so I'll give EE a shot. I want to tidy up my Office 365 for business situation. I'm a single user running my own small business from my home office. I only need one Office 365 Business Premium account but I want more than one email addresses. Microsoft say I would need to buy two O365 Business Premium licences to get 2 email accounts. This would be a stupidly expensive solution. I figured out the only solution was to have the one O365 BP account and also buy one O365 Business Essentials licence. Sometimes it seems this is allowed and sometimes not.
I already have 4 Exchange online licences as well as a separate Office 365 Small Business Premium account. Surely there is some way to have only one account. It seems to me the simplest solution would be to upgrade one of the Exchange licences to O365 Business Premium and leave the remaining 3 licences as O365 Business Essentials. Is this possible? Microsoft seem to be saying it's not.
