Doesnt make sense to tell all our 500 users to go to new site for webmail.

There should be way,

install with same name, test with single machine (change host file point to that new IP for owa.contoso) towards owa.contoso.com if all working good
switch over DNS to point to new IP

Wondering if anybody has done it this way,

i'm talking about the server name, but you can use the same URL OWA name

for example you user will still access to the old URL OWA name
