Office 356 Kiosk Alternatives

Office 365 Platform Disables Support for POP/IMAP Protocol, Owing to High Risk. Office 365 Kiosk/F1 Users Impacted


Options available for Kiosk/F1 users

It is advisable for customers to explore below approaches:
  • Kiosk/F1 users can continue using the existing plan with only web access and limited 2GB space.



  • Switch to a higher plan of Office 365 like Exchange Online Plan 1, Business Basic plan, etc. But upgrading to a new plan may be an unnecessary cost.



  • The most economical solution is our bespoke Office 365 – Cloud Zimbra hybrid where you could park power users on an Office 365 plan and general users on the Cloud Zimbra platform, both sharing the same domain name.
