Congratulations! You’ve come to the end of the course! Let’s review what you’ve learned. We kicked things off by looking at the two fundamental email migration options: migrations and coexistence. 

After looking at these fundamental migration options, we dove into the specific ways you can migrate from an on-prem Exchange environment to Microsoft Exchange Online. We also looked at how you can build coexistence between an on-prem Exchange environment and Exchange Online.

We wrapped up by looking at the specific ways that you can migrate from 3rd party mail solutions, like Gmail, to Exchange Online. At this point, you should have a good understanding of what options are available for deploying and migrating to Exchange online.

To learn more about Microsoft 365 Messaging Migrations and Deployments, you can, and should, read Microsoft’s published documentation. You should also keep an eye out for new courses on Cloud Academy because we’re always publishing new ones.
