I just spent the weekend working performing some SBS to Office 365 migrations.
Here are some useful links that make the process a whole lot easier.
Export mailboxes to PST for Exchange 2010 (SBS 2011 Standard)
Export mailboxes to PST for Exchange 2007 (SBS 2008)
Import PST files to Office 365
- The above link neglected to mention that the Mailbox Import Export Role must be assigned to the account that is performing the migrations – http://www.alexandreviot.net/2016/01/12/office-365-import-export-role/

Getting Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 to work with Office 365
- The following link lists the minimum requirements needed to quickly get your Outlook desktop client running with Office 365.

AND if you happen to still be using SBS 2003 (I certainly hope not!), you can use Exmerge or Outlook to output individual mailboxes to PST. Do it soon!
