Dear expert:

We are going to purchase Office 365 E3 plan.
However we don't want to give certain department exchange online but we will give them office professional plus on their computers and accounts.

My understanding is that all users must have exchange online account.
I am wondering if we can create user accounts without granting them access to exchange online.  But they can still login the cloud to use sharepoint, Lync and 2010 Office professional plus.

Any other recommendations!
