I want to use Microsoft Exchange Online to host my emails. I understand this involves changing MX records to point to Microsoft's servers.

My issue is that in cPanel I have some piped email address that forward to PHP scripts which I cannot lose. Is there a way to host some emails addresses remotely while still keeping some addresses processed by my cPanel server?

Yes this is possible. Depending on if you are talking about sending email FROM those addresses:

It's similar to allowing a lob app to send through an account on O365:


OR if you are talking about mailboxes residing on the cPanel server:

If you are wanting to share SMTP namespaces with Exchange Online you can see my answer and comments here: Office 365 routing of internal domain messages

You need to research these options and then if necessary ask a new question with details on what you tried if you run into issues.
