What happens to the online mailbox if the O365 license is removed and the account is disabled. I can't find it in get-mailbox and I don't see it as soft deleted 

 

Get-Mailbox first.lastname@company.com

Get-Mailbox -SoftDeletedMailbox | Select-Object Name,ExchangeGuid

 

If I assign the license again, the mailbox shows back up with items.

How long until an unlicensed mailbox gets removed or is deleted?

Hi! This is the official documentation about mailbox removal and what happens if you do:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/recipients-in-exchange-online/delete-or-restore-mailboxes

It seems you’ve followed the correct steps for hybrid setup!

Also have a look here:
