After migrating a user to the hosted cloud account, emails to this user are stuck in local queues.  This is a staged migration.  MX record still points to on-premises while migration process modifies ADSIEdit entry for user to temp domain in the cloud.

Have you converted the mailbox-enabled user to a mail-enabled user with the .VBS script yet?
Is the targetAddress attribute set correctly for the user?  Should be something like "SMTP:user@domain.onmicrosoft.com".

Local delivery queue contains messages that are queued on the Exchange server for local delivery to an Exchange mailbox. You can follow below articles to troubleshoot the issue :

@footech - I'm not aware of the VBS , but ADSIEdit is showing the target address pointing to the x@x.onmicrosoft.com address.  

@michaelalphi - Thanks for the links.  I have looked through them briefly and will use them for some more troubleshooting.

The targetAddress attribute is set when you run the migration batch, and that appears correct.  Is the batch still running?
The .VBS script is part of step 6 in the staged migration instructions.

I ended up identifying two things that seemed to improve my situation. There were some public DNS server entries within the Exchange server configuration which I removed and the account that had been migrated had a forwarding rule with the check-box enabled for deliver to both email boxes.  I disabled this and email flow began to behave much better.

@footech - Thanks for the link to the VBS instructions.
