For companies of 11-250 persons, its called Office 365 Midsize Business. It has a more advanced Administration UI and more capabilities.

For companies of 250+ persons, its called Office 365 Enterprise, which has an Education variant (which only has a different licensing model) and a Government version that is only available in the US and has a completely isolated Data Center.

Sending e-mail from SharePoint Online

When creating emails in workflows in SharePoint Online, they’re being sent from the following e-mail address: This can’t be changed as the e-mail address is maintained at the farm level and therefore is the same for all customers.

What to do? Create an e-mail forwarding account that SharePoint Online sends to. Use custom code to process the incoming e-mails and send them out via the “official” e-mail address. For more info, see:
