All accounts must be matched or migrated before migrating the groups they belong to, or with the same task that migrate groups. Otherwise, the newly migrated accounts will not be added to the target groups. Workaround: Re-migrate the affected groups after all their members are migrated. N/A
If you migrate a mail-enabled group with non mail-enabled members, some of those users might not be added to the target group. The following error is displayed for each affected user: "Group membership migration completed with errors. Couldn't find object [User GUID]. Please make sure that it was spelled correctly or specify a different object." Workaround: Re-migrate the affected groups. ODM-309

ODM -788
In case of re-migration, On Demand Migration re-migrates mail and calendar items that have changed in the source mailbox to the target mailbox. Also, calendar items that have been removed from the source mailbox will be removed from the target mailbox. Re-migration of other types of items that have been modified or deleted in the source mailbox is not supported. 4781288-1

Address Rewriting
Due to Microsoft's Exchange Online limits on messages sent from the tenant that are calculated according to purchased Exchange Online licenses, some of the sent messages exceeding this limit will not be delivered within 24 hours and will wait in the queue to be send next day. If waiting time will be longer than 24 hours, the sender will receive an NDR.

Workaround: To increase bandwidth you need to purchase more Exchange Online licenses
