I need to transfer the FSMO roles from one server to another because we are decommissioning an older DC. Is this something that I can safely do during the day or is it better left to off-hours when no one is really using the network and email?

I would do this after hours or over a weekend, since if something gets hosed up, you have time to fix it.  But you can transfer the roles while the servers active without a reboot if that's what you're asking.

you can move it during the the day, make sure it moved smoothly  with no errors
especially the PDC emulatur.

by the way, i did it my self  during work day, move FSMO roles doesn't require reboot.
but if think that somthing mey go wrong so QuiteSupersonic right and it will be better
to do it after work time.
