Mail migration to Office 365

Posted on 2014-02-16
Last Modified: 2014-02-17
We have a customer who has mail hosted at SherWeb  and he wants to move to office 365.  He is asking us for documentation, detailing how we are going to do this.  

I could sit down, spin up a lab and then do a step by step document, but I suspect there is a document out there already that has what I need in it.  

Can anyone recommend a link that details the process, including ADFS et al?

Of course, I'm googling, but I always post first in case someone already knows where to look.
