Hi Experts,

Now we like to start with O365.

We have no tenant and no subscribtions.

Please can you help me with some links and news, how to start with O365 setup ?

Hi EPRS_Admin,
Are you looking for a hybrid setup or move to cloud?

In hybrid you can have few mailboxes onpremise and few mailboxes in cloud.

If you provide your requirement I will explain in detail.
