Doing a large deployment and have OneDrive and SharePoint deployed. Mail transition off Goog is in a couple months but wondering if there is a work around to send notifications outbound when someone shares a document from OneDrive. Since MS only looks internally first its sending the notification to their Outlook account which we've hidden. Any thoughts on how to send these sharing notifications outbound to our regular MX records?

Credit goes to BitTitan for this solution.
The default mail routing can be manipulated by a mechanism called Criteria-Based Routing (CBR). Instead of dropping the mail in the mailbox on Office 365, we can intercept the message and transfer it to the original email system. The interception is based on criteria similiar to the membership of a specific Distribution List.
This is best explained by using the same example scenario:

For the setup, use PowerShell, because it is faster and easier to set up than working through the Office 365 admin portal. If you need information about how to do this through the Office 365 admin portal, contact Microsoft Support.
When a user is fully migrated, remove the user from the DL, and they will receive their email in their own Office 365 mailbox

We were able to get this working and some of us were forwarding our mail from our google accounts into our o365 mail accounts.
Since this has been working the forward from google to o365 has stop as expected.
Is there any way to have a copy dropped into the o365 mailbox as well again without removing the user from the DL we created?

Basically until we switch over to Outlook we need notifications for when OneDrive docs are share. Additionally some folks like IT and power users are forwarding Gmail to Outlook to test filter and rule creations and just vet the experience. hope this makes sense. Its a temporary stop gap to ensure we test thoroughly and also ensure people are getting notifications when docs are shared with them.

Thanks what you provided earlier works for us in the interim. Appreciate the help. The only issue is the formatting that comes over (even if you just forward manually) is very very ugly. I assume there is now way to change this correct?
Its a bandaid for now so we can live with the ugly links
