    Accepted Solution

    Please go ahead there are no risk but make sure,

    There are no Exchange 5.5-based servers in your organization.
    There are no plans to add Exchange Server 5.5 servers to your organization in the future.
    Your organization will never require interoperability between Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003 and servers running earlier versions of Exchange Server.
    Your organization does not use any connectors or gateway programs that run only in Exchange Server 5.5.
