Exchange Online Office 365 integration questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,
    I am about to setup a pilot and wanted to ask a few questions.

    I am planning a multi-domain exchange deployment...where I am hosting my main email on site with a domain of and I want to host and on my office 365 Exchange online implementation. To do this do I have to define the new domains on my current exchange server and then setup the users on office 365?

    one of the things that my user base wants is single sign on but they won't be using rich clients. I know this works well for rich clients, but can single sign on also sign on to Office 365 web and one drive?

    I will be implementing ADFS and DIrSync for AD replication and ADFS for single sign on.

    How does licensing work? if my entire directory replicates to Office 365 and I only want some users over there activated, how do those I want activated. Can I easily activated a bunch of users for only some services at one time? If I deactivate or delete an account locally, will  those changes take at office 365? How does that work with licensing? do my licenses get automatically freed up?
