Migrating from Exchange 2016 to Office 365

Last Modified: 2018-04-16
Hi all

Currently I am working with a customer who want to move their email hosting from Exchange 2016 to Office 365.  I was wondering if it is possible to have two MX records while the migration is going on.  I want to setup the Office 365 environment up first before migrating mailboxes  The Exchange 2016 provider host multiple domains so a hybrid version is not really an option.  I am wondering what is the best way to achieve this migration.  Thanks in advance.
