How to disable Exchange on SBS2003

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.

"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.


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.

ok, I disabled all the services already but wanted to make sure that there was no other steps to take.

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.
