I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You don't do anything from the Exchange end. You need to remove all of the user accounts from the BES Admin console and that will remove any Blackberry attributes from the users' email accounts on the Exchange server.  Then you can simply uninstall the BES software.

I should say, just to be absolutely clear, that when you delete the user accounts from the BES Admin console, it will PROMPT you to remove the Blackberry attributes from Exchange. Of course, you want to answer "Yes" to this prompt to go ahead and remove them.

Hi,

Don't forget to revoke Exchange and AD permissions for BlackBerry Service Account once BES is uninstalled.
