I would go for moving mailboxes using move request, new-moverequest, this way the user down time is minimal and the mailbox gets deleted from the old server only after it's being moved to the new one, outlooks will be auto configured to the new server, the users may work even while moving the mailboxes and will be notified to close and reopen the outlook to connect to the new server.
There are lots of articles over the internet on how to do this process depends on your destination Exchange version.

Good luck.
