Migrating to Office365 (Exchange Online)

I am in the process of creating a test pilot for exchange online (office365) migration.

I have set up adfs, adfs proxy and dir sync is working like a charm. I've migrated the first test account to the cloud yesterday,

While trying to configure outlook client today it turns out that I have to convert the mailbox to a Mail Enabled Contact. Which I managed to do after 3 hours on the phone  with MS support.

...so now the good news :) Launch outlook client and receive the attached message. The support eng. tells me I have to delete the existing profile and create an new one.

Is this for real?  I can't see myself having to do this for every user I migrate. Somwhere I read that you had to go to accounts>add account and simply time the user@domain.com/password again .

Any help would be greatly appreciate it.

The support eng. tells me I have to delete the existing profile and create an new one - Yes cause your moving to a total different environment.

If its Outlook 2010 03 2008 it can bind itself with your Login into the Machine and automatically create a Outlook profile for you or else you have to go to -> Control Panel -> Mail -> Show Profiles -> New and run through it.
