How can I manage an Exhange 2003 replication in order to transfer data from one server to another ?

I have an old server on which Exchange 2003 runs. I want to change the server itself without affecting Exchange data and access. I have a zero downtime constraint. Is it possible to prepare my second server, and launch some kind of replication with the other. And finally, when this replication is finished, I would just have to powerdown the old server. All this is transparent for the users. Is this scenario feasible ? Has someone some experience to share on this question.

The only downtime you have is when you actually move the users, and that will only last as long as the mailboxes are large.

Most of the work is done during business hours, and the client machines never need to be touched.
