I hope he listened to Carl instead.

If you are in the same org, a CLEAN swing server replacement is ALWAYS
the way to go.

-------------------------------------------------------If I am
understanding you correctly, then all you need
to do is move all your mailboxes from the old server
to the new one. 

Now if the mailboxes are fairly large say in gigabytes
then ofcourse it will take some time to move. So in
such a case create a Recovery Storage Group and do a
backup and restore after with a proper cutoff.

Hope this helps,
