How do I disable 100% exchange server on a SBS 2003? I have a customer that uses a cloud solution now and I just want to disable all exchange functions on the server to make sure those resources are being freed to use by other services.

Thanks!

MS does not recommend removing it because SBS relies on all the apps ti run correctly. I would recommend just disabling all of the exchange services.

No, that should be it. Just make sure all of the services pertaining to exchange are stopped and disabled and you should not have to do anything else. SBS will stay happy without you removing it.
