    Ok, thanks everyone for the help.

    After waiting another day for Microsoft to get back to me, they have now stated "A2 Plan that you have has the rules options under that mail flow tab. It should not cause you any issues. Rule can be created and it should work fine. "

    So I'll ignore the first two Microsoft employees, and take this advice

    Currently in the process of moving over to Schools Broadband, having read the nice sales man email "Our solution also includes Microsoft 365 email with as many email addresses for staff & pupils as required" I didn't give it a second thought and assumed this would be suitable for our pupils.

    I know that our current provider (LLN) filters emails based on keywords etc. to make emails safe for children, looking into Office 365 the safety is not that comprehensive...I was considering using mail flow to block external emails, but have found that to be licensed to use this you have to be on the A3 plan - which for amount of staff/pupils would be way too much (going from completely free A2 to around £9000 A3 is ridiculous licensing). I have contacted Schools Broadband but they never got back to me.

    If anyone has any opinions that would be great, I know other primaries are with Schools Broadband so would be interesting to know there thoughts. Is our only option to buy into some type of pupil safe email / VLE package? Or would Outlook on Office 365 be OK in this environment? Is there any guidance/restrictions email solutions for children?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Beany,

    sorry for the late reply. I've been at Fortinets Global Partner Conference in Mexico for a week. There's lots of nice new features coming your way in v5.2 which we'll be looking to roll out probably around April / May time.

    I'll get one of my techs to answer this for you as unfortunately I'm no Office 365 expert.

    I'll be in touch.

    @synaesthesia, as a secondary school we can setup Office 365 for you no problem. Only our gold package comes with Office 365 for primary schools or for a small fee we'll upgrade them. If you've got quite a few you'd like to upgrade to do let me know and I'll get your account manager Craig to do "a special" for you

    Cheers

    Dave

    No worries, we've already got O365 in place at our secondary, one of the primaries also via their Academy chain are similar. Cheers
    Mexico though, eh? It's alright for some!
