Disabling Exchange Server on SBS 2008 install

LeeBons asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We are planning on outsourcing our email  to an email service.  Once the transition for email is complete, what should I do to disable Exchange?  One of the reasons for outsourcing is because we do not have Exchange running on a dedicated server and it seems to suck up lots of the server's resourses and is really dragging our server down.  So, once all of the email is transitioned, I would like to disable Exchange to free up some of the load on the server.  Also, Sharepoint is installed and is not being used.  Not sure if there is any dependence with Exchange.
