I have the same question. I am a consultant to small non-profits. Office 365 has great potential, but subscription costs will be a major factor. Thanks, Jeff
Same question. I don't care to have to pay.
I'm paying my current Wordpress hoster. Just want to know how much before to migrate.
Yes I too worry about the cost, the best I can tell is that it will cost me $6.00 per user and e-mail thats $72 a year. OLSB I am paying $15.00 a year for 5 users and plenty of email acounts. Not looking good and I have turned a lot of folks over to OLSB and they like it! They are not going to like it when i tell them within a year you will have to change over to O365 and pay more:(
Here are the basics for Enterprise:

For EU it's 5.25€/user/month
The Office Subscription Plans are as follows:
Small Business: www.microsoft.com/.../about.aspx
The P1 link doesn't appear to mention price (or available upgrades) once.
It does not mention the price, other than $6.00 for SMB at this time. We do expect to receive updates as each day progresses
I am hopeing that they may keep domains at $15.00 a year at lest. Doubt it! But there is always hope!
When can we expect to hear more about pricing details?
With Office Live Small Business you can create up to 100 email accounts (see smallbusiness.officelive.com/.../FAQ ). So how many email accounts can you have per $6 user on Office 365? I am praying that it won't be $6 per email account. At the moment my current webhost offers me unlimited IMAP email boxes on each of my domains and whilst I certainly don't expect Office 365 to match that I'm really not sure that I want to pay $6 for each extra address. For example, if I bring my vanity domain into Office 365 and set up a user with an email address like John.Smith@mydomain.com I really don't want to have to pay $6 each time if I want firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc, etc. Am I correct in assuming that this is the way it will work after the Beta ends? If so I will need to try to consolidate down as many of my existing email address as possible to minimize the costs or alternatively I will need to take my vanity domain back out of Office 365 (which sadly makes Office 365 a little bit redundant for my needs).
If anyone can confirm/deny this then it would certainly save me a lot of time upfront. Many thanks!
OLSB mail ran on hotmail, 365 mail is Exchange so as I understand it you need a 365 account to get an email account. Exchange is a more robust email service but if cost is the main factor there are other ways to get free domain based email addresses..
