"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In cutover migration we migrate mailboxes from on-premises to office 365. Once the migration is completed we route all the mail traffic to office 365 and start using office 365 mailboxes.

For further understanding you can refer the article from MS.
