If any Customers are accessing Office 365 mailbox using Outlook 2007, it will be important to upgrade by end of October after which access to the online mailbox will not be possible.  The reason is that Outlook 2007 access Exchange Online mailbox using Outlook Anywhere , also called RPC over HTTP protocol .
