Hello,

Migrating my Orange email to Microsoft 365 Here are the steps I plan to perform: Uninstalling your Microsoft 365 Apps for Business currently installed on your different machines Installation of Microsoft 365 Business Standard on the 16 user stations (1 MS 365 user account = 1 user = 1 station) Configure Microsoft Apps for Business to connect to current mail ORANGE Back up the mailboxes (will be done just before the switchover) Switching messaging to office 365 (Insertion of MX, TXT and CNAME records) Concerning outgoing emails it will just be enough for me to send a press release to users on the other hand for emails coming from outside, will the steps that will be carried out allow me to not lose my emails coming from outside?

Best Regards

    Hi @YETIANRI EMMANUEL OUSMANE SORI

    Once you have verified the domain and created the corresponding mailboxes with the same email addresses in Microsoft 365, you can update the MX record of your domain from Orange email to Microsoft 365.

    It may take some time based on the TTL of your MX record, and based on the frequence that the public DNS server updates the cached information.

    Once the MX record is updated, new incoming emails will start being routed to Microsoft 365 mailboxes.
