I would like to if there is some plan or set of steps i can follow for Decommissioning of Exchange Environment - Step by Step i dont think is very easy but to read articles

If you are sure all users are moved i would suggest to check relay to ensure nothing is using the old environment, also hope you dont see any Mailboxes on old server once check the HomeMDB value on the DB's to ensure no users show exept default entire for System mailboxes

I have already worked with EXMON for Mailbox or any activity on server ..... Good point about SMTP logs i guess as you have mentioned

I had few more queries
1. When is the Best time to change MX ?
2. I have run EXBPA all is fine .... any other such tool i can check something with ?
3. I have taken a Online and Offline backup so good on that part
4. Can i use these old servers for some good task ?

Yes i meant SMPT logs ... sorry on my part sometimes run in myself :)

1.) If you have a Firewall and thats the main point you dont need to until the receiver is changed
2.) There could be others but if Exmon is good and you will be checking SMPT logs i cant think of anything else
3.) Good but not sure why both
4.) You can surely use the old servers depending on their Performance for File server or some other Applications you might have but not very heavily used
