Our organization has changed from a FirstNameLastInital@Domain.com alias format to FirstName.LastName@domain.com. I would like to create a transport rule to pre-pend the subject line of messages that are addressed to people with the old alias.

The questions is can a transport rule be created (maybe using an expression) to take action if a . (period) is not present in the to: email alias.
Example: Take action if a message is addressed to JohnD@domain.com but not if it is addressed to John.Doe@domain.com?

didn't try such configuration before, but you can try the exception, so create the normal rule that applies to all emails, then apply exception from the exceptions tab to not apply the rule if it has . in the to, tricky and needs testing.

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
