    Exchange 2003 to O365 Migration




    We are coming close to the end of our staged migration of Exchange Server 2003 to Office 365 hosted Exchange (plan E3).

    When we are finished, and the MX records have been updated to point straight to the Office 365 servers, I was wondering how I go about creating users in our local AD (I have AD sync setup).

    I want to get rid of our exchange server, which means I won't be able (I don't really want) to create a user with a mailbox and then migrate it.

    So can anyone tell me how I go about creating a mail enabled user (Active Directory in Windows Server 2003 R2) once the migration is complete and we no longer have an on premise exchange server?

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    To enable a user in 365 with a mailbox, you have to give them license for exchange and that will create it for them. ALl you have to do is ensure the user in 365 through your DirSync. Try it now with a test user and you'll see how easy it is.
