but have you removed all the data and public folders and global catalogue etc from this server?

you can reclaim that space if you run a defrag (eseutil /d) against the database.

Just put go into add/remove programs and click change/remove on Small Business Server, it will then load SBS setup (you will need the SBS CDs). Then just choose to remove exchange.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

I am assuming that he knows the implications of getting rid of exchange, in which case all he needs to do is remove exchange as per my suggestion - which is the same as the second KB article posted, i.e. go into add/remove programs.
