Removing "Exchange Attributes" from a disabled user template

We have several disabled user templates that we use when creating new employees. I am in the middle of moving over to a new exchange server but these user templates have one of the old servers listed as the home server. since they don't have mailboxes i can't move them, i only get the option to remove exchange attributes. When i choose to do so it comes up with a long error (cant remember word for word) basically saying "make sure you know what you're doing. this should only be done under certain circumstances."

If i do this will i be able to uninstall exchange from that computer or should i rehome them a different way?

Removing exchange attributesis normally ok - it can cause corruption in the AD if the user records have not been properly closed; you should be fine to remove attributes in this instance.
You should probably also check whether the user templates are associated with any public folders, as this would also prevent you from closing the exchange cleanly.
Hope this helps

I was able to remove the attributes. Exchange then let me uninstall but during the uninstall it gave me a ton of errors and didnt remove itself correctly. That is another round of questions i suppose. I would retry the uninstall but i dont want to compromise my existing Exchange server that the messages are flowing through.
