From the safety of the cafeteria
First job - lower the ttl to something ridiculously small (1 or 2 minutes)
at your name servers.
Then wait for a period at least as long as the original ttl before doing
anything at all.
The rest rather depends on the current set up. perhaps ...
transfer the mx records late Friday afternoon.
wait till your clients tell you incoming mail (on the old server) has
dried up. alter any other relevant DNS records and give them details for
setting up their client apps on the new mail server. bingo - all mail
should be present and correct.
unless you have complete control of every detail you cannot do this
without keeping your clients in the loop.
Save the drama
for your Mama.
