First you need to check what version of BES and Exchange you are on: Minimum is listed below

Then you need to set the account permission

I don't think, you need to enable or reactivate it again. If you still have doubt, i would suggest to give a second check with BES vendor.

You will need to configure the permissions on the new exchange server for your BES service account and update your MAPI profile on your BES server so that it is pointing at the new server.  But other than that the migration is seamless to your BB users.
