Yes, when migrated and by who.  Couple of ways.

Before starting a hybrid-migration, I recommend turning on advanced logging in Domain Security Policy.  This logs specific LDAP events to domain controllers.  You need a Syslog Server and client minimum to capture those events giving complete audit trail.

Next, this information is stored on the DIRSYC server, but it depends on how recent.  Using the metasearch option simply locate that users primary SMTP, for example.

Third, requires Global Admin and a few other rights in 365 portal and then you can easily pull audit logs from the cloud side.

Exchange is a schema update.  Any attribute you change in Exchange or ADSI Edit for example get logged to AD and to DIRSYNC.

Using the Online Compliance and Reporting tool you can pull a report on that mailbox.

The easiest way, IMO, is enable the logging as I stated and have a Syslog server from day one so you can hand anyone a report stating here is every attribute that changed, when it changed, who did the change.

Which one would you like to discuss further?
