hi

If your POP3 account supports IMAP, you would be able to run IMAP migration to migrate from your current POP mail server to Office 365.

If it does not support IMAP migration, you would need to import Outlook items from an Outlook Data File (.pst)file into your Office 365 account.

For more information about IMAP migration, please refer to the links below:

@ Chretien - thanks for your quick response. Just need this clarification - can I keep the old email addresses or do I need to completely switch over to Microsoft?

You can also use Connected accounts, which will basically fetch all the messages from your Earthlink/Mindspring account and copy them to the Office 365 one. This is a lot more user friendly process, but the downside is you need to configure it on a per-user basis.
