What's a handy?  A cell phone or tablet?

Add the E-mail account using ActiveSync and change what syncs if you don't want e-mail.  If the device you're using doesn't have an email app that supports ActiveSync (the vast majority do), look at Touchdown for a third party app.

Handy == cell phone

It is just the calendar that requires transferring, not the e-mail.
Is ActiveSync a function built into android or an app on the google store or part of exchange server/outlook client ?

As I said - Add the E-mail account using ActiveSync and change what syncs if you don't want e-mail.  If the device you're using doesn't have an email app that supports ActiveSync (the vast majority do), look at Touchdown for a third party app.

One further note - iPhones support disabling sync of Mail but Android devices have varying mail apps and it would difficult to say how to do it on your specific device - best thing to do is simply look over the various settings your device offers.

(Unless you've explicitly disabled ActiveSync or blocked it via your firewall, there is no settings on Outlook/Exchange - it's purely on the phone).

Sorry for the delay, I've passed the info onwards plus a couple of links I have found concerning using ActiveSync.  I'm still waiting for feedback.

(The usual story - how do I do this it is urgent, followed by no time to try that it will be next week at the earliest).

I've eventually got some feedback.
Apparently they have installed a Samsung Kies update (software to transfer between the handy and a PC) and noticed it said synchronising.  Checking what was being synchronised they found the calendar amongst other things.  Apparently there has also been an update done on the server.

So, it looks like this ActiveSync isn't actually required after all now.

I assume it will work, there were links on the internet about how to achieve what was requested using ActiveSync hence I will award the points based on the expectation it would work.
