Hi all, I want to migrate only one mail account of my hosting mail to office 365 due to storage capabilities.

It's possible to have got for example, [email protected] in office365, and the other mails like [email protected],[email protected],[email protected],[email protected] in my cpanel hosting server?

I read a lot of threads, that using mx records, but for example, if I use mx record for outlook as 0 priority and for my domain like 1, it will be any problem?
It will lose some mails? I don't know if in this way will work.

How can I do for made this change for only one address of email.

appologies... i mis read your scenario, but i'll leve my original response below incase it's of any interest

This might work for you, its long winded, but has worked for me.
Using your email client software (lets say thunderbird or outlook as an example)
Create your email accounts for both Cpanel and Outlook 365, then drag and drop from one to the other.

Depending on how much data you have, it can take quite some time though, so don't expect instant results.
