    Hi all, the instructions for activating Office 365 Internal Use Rights for eligible Australian partners have been updated.  Login to, click on GET BENEFITS and follow the link "Partners in Australia, learn more about additional options that apply only to you".

    Hi, are these available yet? My telstra rep tells me there were 'limited' licenses available this week, i signed up but get 'there are no subsriptios available to you'

    please help?

  4. Hi Jasons, Marlon

    Just got the news that the Australian details will be updated on Wednesday with the right contacts to make sure everything goes smoothly. Apologies for the delay.

    Hi, any update IUR for Australian Partners?

  6. Hi  Jason, Marlon, Jason

    We've got a couple of people who are out of office at the moment, as they come back online full details will be posted, we were supposed to have something mid week.



  7. another Jason says:

    Like Marlon requested, when does Australia get the IUR licenses?

  8. Marlon Marescia says:

    Can australian partners sign up for these licenses yet? The cloud essentials website says that Australian partners have extra conditions they have to meet or there is a delay in the roll out of Office 365 Internal User licenses.

    Hi Jason,

    The answer to how you get the seats we dont have yet, Microsoft Corp is currently working on a solution for partners who need more than 250 seats.  We are hoping to have an answer for partners available over the coming week.


  10. Hi Jason

    I haven't seen the final details yet, but with BPOS partners could purchase additional seats over 250 for additional users, and these were at a discounted price. I'll chase up more details and get back to you.

    What happens if we need more than 250 users?
