I think you're right. The first starting point is to find out whether you have POP3/IMAP access to the email server for these accounts.

£373 based on your 60 users.
If you have imap access to the easymail servers and you should have then Migrate IMAP mailboxes to Exchange Online: Roadmap - Office 365 for enterprises makes it look possible to be able to do it yourself.
If you want to PM me some more info we can look at it together if you want.

I am about to do the same thing you are doing. I also spoke to SWGFL about 4 months ago about the migration and they said it was a free service but there were a few delays - that has obviously now changed. I have since synced all users via windows azure link up and verified an alternate domain name ready, so mailbox migration is the next step...
I just wanted to add that after looking at the imap migration tool, I think it should work for you. Have you ever set a user up at your school with an imap mailbox on outlook? The incoming mail server just gets set to imap.domainname.gloucs.sch.uk.
Let me know what stage you are at and we can probably do the project together.

@witch @speckytecky doing some testing with the details Geoff provided me at the moment.
SWGfL Electronic Service Interface
If you can setup an outlook client and get it to connect to your service via imap then you are good to go and you can use the built in Office 365 migration tools but you will need to have the usernames & passwords for all the accounts.
If you don't have imap access ask if it's possible to get it.
Alternatively if you only pop3 access what you could do is setup your new users in office 365 and then they add their easymail accounts as external ones which will then suck in all their old emails.
Contacts and calendars are going to be more difficult and probably not achievable if you only have pop3 access.

Sorry - stupid here - don't understand what you mean by "setup an outlook client and get it to connect to your service via imap"
(I've got all the usernames and passwords -well nearly all of them)
I have made several phone calls this morning and no one seems to know who to speak to to get imap access, or even if it is possible.
I dont know if I only have pop3 access - I'm presuming so...
I did wonder about having external email accounts. TBH I haven't ever set up an Outlook account or anything - at home mrwITch has done all that!

So are you saying that we HAVE got imap access? This is getting more complicated by the second

@witch did you read the SWGfL link I posted? you add an account in the full outlook client with imap as the connection type just to test if you already have imap access.
I just added the test account Geoff gave me as a connected account to my Office 365 account.
Interesting thing about that picture is that the connection port is 143 i.e imap so a migration using the Office 365 tools should work.

I'm utterly lost
Presumably you mean Outlook in Office 365. I don't have an account yet
I can't even find where to go to set up an Office 365 A2 free account.
I am sure to get it all wrong and lose everyone's emails. How on earth I would do it when I am only part-time and not here when the teachers aren't is beyond me.

No I mean outlook as in the Microsoft email client or any other email client that supports imap connection, thunderbird will do it as well.
Just to setup with your own account details to test if you can connect to the current service via imap this is nothing to do with Office 365 at this point.
