Exchange 2010 to Office 365

I have a couple of email boxes that need to be migrated from exchange 2010 to Office 365. I couldn't find anything out there that fits for my scenario so I'm hoping I can get some help here.

I have 3 2010 Exchange mailboxes that end in .local and are used only for sending email(receiving email is an IMAP client). How do I get to migrate those mailboxes to Office 365? Is there a way to do it or just save their mailboxes as PST and migrate them that way?

Thank you!

If those are only used for sending (i.e. no actual mailbox or messages to migrate), why bother? Simply create a new mailbox/DG/contact or whichever you prefer for them in Exchange Online.

Otherwise, the UPN/domain suffix doesnt really matter, if it's something not routable, it will just be replaced with the default one (@tenant.onmicrosoft.com).

For 3 mailboxes however, you can also just do the .pst export/import. Cutover migration doesnt allow you to choose only specific mailboxes to migrate, staged one will require a dirsync (and if you need it for only those 3, it's a bit of overkill), hybrid is even bigger overkill. So either do a IMAP or just pst export import.
