Exchange 2007 on SBS to Office 365 migration

We are migrating users from onsite Exchange 2007 running on SBS2008 into Office 365.

The main concern is to disable Exchange without breaking anything.  There are a total of 17 Microsoft Exchange Services listed under services and from what I have read, it is better to disable Exchange rather than uninstall.

Are there special considerations to take into account when migrating from Small Business Server?  We need to continue using Active Directly and all other components, except Exchange.

Can this be done?  Is there any licensing issue with SBS that all components need to be running on the single SBS server?

I will post another question about the exact steps, but if it can be done, it should be a matter of disabling exchange, possibly adjusting cname or other settings on server, downloading 365 connector to workstation..I will need to iron out the details in the documents I am currently reviewing.  Any pointers are appreciated.

Disabling stuff will not bring things, and it do, you can simply enable them back.

Thanks,  We switched the users over so they log on to local computer, instead of Domain, for now.  I will disable services as needed.
