A lot of testing and planning. Never believe that migrations are something you can rush over the weekend. For any good project to be a success, you need to allocate enough time and resources to completely scope out and complete the project. Cutting corners or not thoroughly testing out your scenario can only lead to a big problem. E-mail is like oxygen -- take it away for any length of time and your users will be extremely unhappy!

Happy migrations!
