Right click on it and choose Remove. It will take a minute for the right click menu to come up, so be patient.
Also make sure that you have removed any public or system folder replication to that machine, otherwise the queues will build up.

I just move all the old server mailbox out and then deleted it from system management. Any other things I need to concern again?

If the old server was the only Exchange server in the org, then you should attempt to complete as much as you can of this article.

Depending on how you installed the replacement server would affect how much or how little of that article you need to complete.
