Migrating form local 2007 Exchange to MS Exchange Online

Posted on 2011-04-23
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I am migrating from my local exchange 2007 server to MS's Exchange Online. I am doing co-existence so I can do a slower more controlled migration. Currently I migrated my inbox to exchange online, but my mail is not flowing to exchange online. Incoming email comes to my local exchange server and then stops. Any ideas on what I need to check or configure?

    Don't you need to change your settings so mail flows directly to the Online exchange?

    This is probably an MX record change where your domain is hosted.

    not in co-existence. mail is suppose to flow to the local and then hosted.

    Accepted Solution

    Using the migration tool from MS was the final step I needed, as you migrate users with this tool it creates a "contact" with a msol address and forwards all email coming to the local server to the exchange online server.
