The users should first be added to MSPComplete using the vanity domain name. A MSPComplete subscription can then be added to each user. Be that as it may, before beginning the migration, the user addresses should be changed to utilize the .onmicrosoft.com domain names at both the Source and Destination, rather than the vanity domain names.
Using the BitTitan Sync Tool. Read the BitTitan Sync Program article for more information.
Test mailbox access.
Note: Test access to the tenantname.onmicrosoft.com addresses, not to the domainname.com addresses. Make beyond any doubt that the tenantname.onmicrosoft.com account is attached to each mailbox in Office 365. Naturally, it should be attached, but if not, it will need to be added as an alias to each account. This can be done through the Office 365 admin portal or via PowerShell scripts. Read the How would I test mailbox access? article for more information.
Click the Provide Credentials radio button, and enter the admin account credentials.
This should be a global admin account. If creating a separate admin account for the motivation behind migration, allude to the Office 365 section in the How would I create an administrator account for login? article.
You should utilize the tenantname.onmicrosoft.com address, for the admin account domain name.

Add users to your MSPComplete customer. From your MSPComplete customer dashboard, click Users > Add Users > Add Users Through an Endpoint (Recommended).
Apply a User Migration Bundle license to each user. From the Users tab, select all the users that you wish to subscribe, click the Apply User Migration Bundle License button, and confirm. Read the Apply User Migration Bundle licenses to the Customer’s Users article for more information.
Send DMA to users. Once DMA has been sent to users, check the Users tab in MSPComplete. This will be populated with the user accounts that have DMA installed. DMA can be sent by either of these options:
Via Group Policy Object (GPO).
Note: This is the recommended methodology because no closure user interaction is required. Read the How would I send the Device Management Agent with a Group Policy Object? article for more information.
Go to All Products > Device Management, then click on DeploymentPro on the far left and pursue the prompts to launch.
Select a customer from the list by clicking on the customer name.
Note: The status column will show Enabled when a customer account has had DMA conveyed to users.
Configure customer DeploymentPro module:

Save and continue.
Activate DeploymentPro module for users.
Either select all users (by putting a checkmark in the case to the left of the Primary Email column heading) or select the individual users (by putting a checkmark in the boxes to the left of the user email addresses).

DeploymentPro cannot be purchased as a standalone service license, and it cannot be added to the single-use mailbox migration license. If you wish to remotely configure Outlook mail profiles using DeploymentPro after a migration, purchase the User Migration Bundle license.
Scenario: Migrate using a third party migration tool
This scenario assumes that user, gathering and other objects from the Fabrikam Company will be manually created in Office 365, imported into the portal via script, or converged into the Contoso Active Directory through Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) consolidation.
Create Administrator accounts in source and target tenants for use in migrating from Office 365 to another Office 365. Some migration tools may require more than one admin account in the source tenant to optimize the data throughput.
To create the resources in the target (Contoso) tenant:
If the Azure AD Connect tool will be utilized to sync all objects from the Contoso Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), the objects from the source (Fabrikam) tenant AD DS must be created in the target tenant (Contoso) AD DS through consolidation.
Verify that all new users and groups are synced to the Contoso.com target tenant via directory synchronization. The objects should appear as email@example.com in the new tenant since the Fabrikam domain has not been moved over at this time. The primary email address for the users and groups can be updated to @fabrikam.com after the domain move is complete.
After migration, the Auto-Complete List (also known as the nickname cache) will have to be cleared on all Outlook clients. To remove all recipients from your Auto-Complete list in Outlook 2010 later, see Manage suggested recipients in the To, Cc, and Bcc boxes with Auto-Complete.
Change your primary MX record from Office 365 to domain that is not reachable, for example “unreachable.example.com”. Internet mail servers attempting to convey new mail will line the mail and attempt redelivery for 24 hours. Using this method, some email may return a non-conveyance report (NDR) depending on the server attempting to convey the email. If this is an issue utilize a MX record backup service. There are many third party services that will line your email for days or weeks. Once your migration is complete, these services will convey the lined mail to your new Office 365 tenant.
Set the Fabrikam.com email domain as the primary address on the new users. This can be done by selecting/editing multiple unlicensed users in the portal or by using Windows PowerShell.
If you are not using the password hash sync feature, pass-through authentication or AD FS, set password on all mailboxes in the target (Contoso) tenant. If you are not using a common password, notify users of the new password.
With cutover relocation, you can climb to 2000 post boxes, however because of period of time it takes to make and move 2000 clients, it is increasingly sensible to move 150 clients or less.
Move post boxes in clumps (organized relocation)
Utilize this sort of movement in case you’re running Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2007, and there are more than 2,000 letter drops. For an outline of organized movement, see What you have to think about an arranged email relocation to Office 365. To play out the relocation errands, see Perform an arranged movement of Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange 2007 to Office 365.
Relocate utilizing a coordinated Exchange Server and Office 365 condition (crossover)
