migrating emails

By r0nn1e ·
I wonder if the title makes justice to my question.

If a company has its emails set up with Microsoft Exchange server with email ids ending as:

Now if, for some reasons, they decide to shift onto a new domain (also say a newcompany name), i want to receive all the mails at the the address

I also want my old mails from the email address. What is the best way to migrate without any glitches?

Why migrate the mail server?
Just have a second MX record created by your ISP. - a.b.c.d with the same ip address as your existing MX record, being: - a.b.c.d.

Configure your mail server to receive mail from
Give all users a new e-mail address, <users> and set it as the reply address.
Maintain the old addresses <users> to receive messages to the old address.
Inform the users of their new e-mail address and have them inform their contacts so you can remove the old addresses and the old MX record in a few months.
