If we have redirection setup using cname, we will not even hit httpd
with the old addresses. Also, when using cname, wouldn't the domain
name the users see still remain the old .com domains?

The best way I can think of is to setup a http 301 redirect. But if we
are aiming to create the best/hardest impact, I'd suggest that we
setup a landing page that warns users about the deprecation and then
redirects after 5 seconds. This should frustrate users enough to have
them start using the correct domain names.
