Thought of this as well, since I need to do that soon at our company.
I had the idea of creating an additional database in Exchange. Move the account/mailboxes to that one. Detach, copy this to other server and attach again, then then move mailbox from the additional db to the target database.

But that is just a thought, perhaps someone can verify if this is correct.

The two domain are not on the same forest, so i cant use cross forest move mailbox.
i think i go with PST file.

my q is?
i use outlook 2010,
there is a limitation PST file size to 2GB or there is have larger file that i can move the 20GB mailbox once?

or i need to create 10 PST files of 2GB each?

To setup cross-forest migration with ILM is overkill for 6 users, as the cost is way to high for such small group of users.

Easiest would be to export the 6 mailboxes as PST-files, create new accounts on the target server, import the PST files and add a second accepted domain in Exchange if they want to keep their old email addresses (remember to update the external DNS to point to the new exchange server).

Exchange can export to PST-files from any mailbox, on the exchange server itself. It does not matter if your clients are using offline or online mode from Outlook.
