From the SBS Essentials forum - the question was asked if the Office 365 integration piece was ready for testing.  Short answer is no. Not yet. That said, it might be wise to start looking at the various hosted exchange platforms you might want to roll out.

In this corner is the Office 365 offerings -- http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=6c6ecc6c-64f5-490a-bca3-8835c9a4a2ea Now keep in mind that the Lync Online won't do telephone dialing without an on premise lync server (which kinda defeats the purpose of the essential box)

If you are an ExchangeDefender customer check out the beta for the essential integration - http://www.vladville.com/2011/04/sbs-2011-integration.html

If you are an intermedia customer - ask them about their plans - http://www.intermedia.net/products/business-productivity-suite.aspx

Bottom line start sniffing around your vendors and asking them what their plans are.
