now at the point where i should be removing the 5.5 exchange server from our 2003 exchange org, everything looks fine, just lost my nerve

no public folders are replicated,
free busy, forms systems folder routing calculation connectors all moved or deleted.

no mail boxes.


the server doesnt have a delete option anywhere?

and any other pitfalls to look out for?

(server has been offline for a coupel for weeks with out any one noticing.

If you follow the article from top to bottom and everything goes as planned. Just make sure that the system and public folders have been replicated over to the new server and users are able to do all tasks (send/receive internal and external emails, schedule meetings and access public folders) when the old server is offline.
