Distribution Group to Mailbox conversion

Our Marketing departments has a couple of DL's (static, not Dynamic) that they use for people to communicate with them. Examples are:



They would like these DL's converted into mailboxes now rather than DL's. But - they want to minimise any downtime where people sending to these DL's would get a rejected/ non-deliverable message.

We have AD sites and Exchange servers in USA, Europe and Asia, and these DL's receive emails from all over.

Is there a recommendation for the quickest and most efficient way to do this?

We are running Exchange 2007 SP2 and AD 2003.
