Our Exchange email currently is managed off-site by another division that is part of the same Active Directory.  We would like to find a way to take over our own mail delivery.  We need to do this with no down time and unnoticeable effects on the user community.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.

If you're in the same forest as the other division, then you would have to build a new Exchange server as PART of the existing Exchange organization.  

You would need to work with the organization owners to do this.  If you are able to install one, then you'd need to configure it, replicate public folders, and finally move the mailboxes.  With the exception of moving the mailboxes, everything else can be done without any down time (assuming you have a dedicated server to install Exchange on).  A user can't be in their mailbox while you move it and that's the extent of the downtime.  You could easily do that after hours.
