We have 2 retired Excahgnes servers A&B and are currenlty using C. There are a couple of users that when they logon to their Exchange account, the Exchange server is now pointing to those retired servers. On one of the units under control panel-->User accounts-->Advanced-->manage passwords-->stored User Names and Passwords, the retired exchange servers are there, I remove them and about a week later they come back. How can I remove these retired Exchange servers all together from my domain?

Use adsiedit to remove the servers from active directory and make sure the dns records are gone as well.  Will post more when I get back in the office
