@Nuno Silva I am not sure if this is what I asked exactly. I was looking for adding additional and separate email accounts without having to assign license to them. so they just act as email account and no Office apps or Onedrive etc is assigned to them.
let's say you want to give someone a temporary email account or for any reason you don't want to pay additional license fee for just creating additional email account.
in the other words, there are many email services which really cost a dime and let you create hundreds of additional email address with no additional charge but with Office 365 It doesn't make sense to pay another 10-15$ just to create another email account.

I must say I start regretting for using Microsoft as a domain for a start up. The services are made for big companies and mainly support massive internal cooperation.
I also do not understand why is is not possible to add a new email account without the 365 subscribtion. It does not make any sense. It is a basic need for any growing company. In todays world you work with many free lancers and in networks and you need to provide an email for people who are not working fulltime for you. It´s called Network business model.
Your solution is to create a shared inbox? It is not the same as a private email is it. @Nuno Silva

@parsarvin I'm a sole proprietor and I had the same question. I understand the answers you gave.
I have a temporary second person working for my firm for a few months. I have created an email user account for her, but have not purchased a license. Could you answer a few more questions I have about the distinction?
1. Does my second user need a license just to access her email even if she doesn't use any of the Office applications?
2. If my second user already has a license to use the Office software through another entity (her school) can she use the apps (Outlook, for example, for email and Word to edit documents I share with her) without me purchasing a user license for her?
3. If I want her to be able to access my firm's folders on OneDrive, does that alone mean she needs a license?
Thank you for any info you can share.

The only solution I have found is $4.00 per user per month (Exchange Online - Plan 1) or $8.00 per user per month (Plan 2) checkout the link below.
You can go into a chat and have the licenses added by a rep if you are an admin, I would recommend this because the instructions were not CLEAR when you do it yourself, really painless using the rep, they want your Co Name, Email add, Comp address and phone, they add the license(s) and you then admin the license. Easy. The cheapest way out that I found.
It seems like the Microsoft folks do not understand the question, or want to ignore the obvious (probably they don't want to answer) either way its like a circular firing squad. I didn't want to waste any more time on it

If you go to your admin section of office 365 go to Billing>purchase services>and select the service you want. The $4.00 or $5.00 per month license sounds more like what you need rather than the standard business license. Once you get the license, you go to users and then add then add user. You will have the option to apply this new reduced license to the user. Hope this helps.
