How do I remove a server from the ESM that isn't being used?  Whenever I try to connect to my exchange server using outlook 2007 it defaults to the old installation.  Whenever I try to right click the old installation (Exchange1) and select 'remove this server' I get the following error:

1:  You cannot uninstall this server as there is at least one postmaster account currently homed on this server.  Please move this account to another server before attempting to uninstall.
2:  One or more users currently use a mailbox store on this server.  The users must be moved to a mailbox store on a different server or be mail disable before uninstalling this server.

I am currently using POP3 and IMAP on the current version (Exchange) but want to switch to exchange.  Can anybody help?
