The Office 365 beta team has made improvements to how you log in to the FOPE Administration Center. Office 365 beta customers can log in to the FOPE Administration Center directly from the Exchange Control Panel without logging in through the FOPE login page. In Exchange Control Panel, on the Mail Control tab, there is a link to FOPE. In the first week of April 2011, the link to FOPE will change to be a direct link into the FOPE Administration Center that does not require users to enter a separate Username and password.

NOTE: After 30 minutes of inactivity, the FOPE Administration Center will time out. In order to log back in, you should close your browser and go back to the FOPE  link in Exchange Control Panel.
