Microsoft Exchange 365 email combined with locally hosted open source POP mailboxes - a hybrid solution for the cost conscious African business.

Our control panel is faster and more intuitive than the 365 admin interface, giving you ultimate control over your licensing.

With your needs in mind we've built a single interface for all your 365 licensing. Manage users and subscriptions and minimise your monthly 365 expenditure by reducing unused and partially used licensing. With pricing that rivals Microsoft's own retail cost there is little reason to choose any other solution.

We offer a free migration service to new customers migrating from on-premise or hosted Exchanges.

Free expert migration

Already using Exchange in a on-premise, hosted or 365 configuration? We're experts at migrating mailboxes with no loss of data and zero downtime. Our engineers go the extra mile to ensure you minimse your licensing cost and maintain a happy and productive email environment.

Spam and virus filtering

In addition to Microsoft's own Exchange Online Protection, Databias offers added spam and virus protection for free with all 365 email licenses. You can always add additional Microsoft filtering in the form of Office 365 Advanced Threat Detection, but you probably won't need it.

A world class control panel

We've spent years developing an industry leading control panel so that you can be in control of your organisation's email at all times. Licensing, domains, email, billing and support all in a secure, easy to use interface.

Centralised and secure

Along with being perhaps the cheapest Office 365 licensing available in South Africa, centralised billing and fanatical support, Databias offers all customers an easy to use web interface so you can manage your own Microsoft licensing from anywhere, anytime.

We're here to help you

Microsoft licensing can be a little daunting to understand and new, targeted offers can significantly reduce your monthly costs. Not sure what licensing is best for you? Drop us a line via email, phone or live chat and we'll figure it out together.

Licensing changes with you

Don't worry about making the wrong choice; you can instantly upgrade / downgrade your mailboxes and software at any time - just another good reason to choose Databias as your Microsoft Cloud Services Provider.

Our most popular 365 email licenses

Here are some things to be aware of
