Ok, i try to explain the problem. I want to uninstall Exchange 2003 and i followed all steps in the Microsoft support webpage http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822931/en. The problem is in the last step beacause i can't uninstall trought the add/remove program the i uninstall manually.
In the last step (again) i have a problem beacause when i try to delete the server in the exchange manager i can't, The message said that i have some mailbox in this server. OK, i search this mailboxs but the only mailbox in this server is SystemMailbox and then what can i do in this situation?

1. Bring up Active Directory Users & Computers.
2. Right-click your domain name at the top, and choose Find.
3. In the Find combo box at the top, select Custom Search.
4. Click the Advanced tab.
5. Paste in the following LDAP query and then click Find Now.
(&(objectclass=user)(msExchHideFromAddressLists=TRUE))

This may bring up what you're looking for.

You might also try a straight users search from the first tab; you can sort by the ExchangeHomeServer attribute.

In this case to finish the uninstall i needed to enter to ADSIedit and remove the old server in the exchange part
