Office 365 does not replace your domain controllers etc, it replaces the need for Exchange.

You can get many different versions of Office365.  If you want office you can get it cloud based, i.e. it is online and nothing is on your computer, or you can get the full office package with the right to istall it on up to five computers for a single user, which is a local install so not effected by connectivity.

As I said at the top Office365 does not replace your DC so it does not do group policies etc.

It is simply a mail account so the computer does not need to be part of a domain.  Outlook will prompt you for credentials when you open outlook.  there is a rubbish "Kiosk" account you can get that is 1GB, all the other packages are 25GB.  However some packages come with unlimited archiving which allows for growth.

You get a sharepoint site for sharing files if you get a package that has it.

Yes your's PC's affiliation with a domain makes no difference to setting up the outlook account.

Cheers,

Tony

Sorry, just to clarify I know Office 365 also does LinkedIn and other things but the author seemed to be asking about specific questions.

Up to you.  locally on your machine or if you purchase one of the bigger 365 packages you can save them on a sharepoint site.
