I'm a consultant running Outlook 98 who has had a LAN connection (with remote dial in) to Microsoft Exchange Server from my laptop. The assingment at the client has ended, and I have all the email files I want to keep downloaded on offline copies. Having had a synchronization disaster before, I'm somewhat skitterish abouth simply deleting the exchange server, in that I don't want my offline files to dissapear when I next open outlook.
1. Is it safe to simply remove the exchange server from the services.
2. Is there anyting I need to do to protect myself.
