The following steps to delete the Recipient Update Service by using Active Directory Service Interfaces Editor (ADSI Edit or AdsiEdit.msc). AdsiEdit.msc is included on the Windows Server 2003 CD in Support\Tools. For more information about ADSI Edit, see ADSI Edit (adsiedit.msc).

a. In ADSI Edit, navigate to Configuration > CN=Configuration,CN=<domain> > CN=Services > CN=Microsoft Exchange > CN=<Exchange organization name> > CN=Address Lists Container > CN=Recipient Update Services.

b. In the result pane, right-click Recipient Update Service (Enterprise Configuration), click Delete, and then click Yes to confirm the deletion.

Actually, I had already done the ADSI to remove the RUS previously as per the instructions. Just now trying to figure out how to uninstall Ex2003 since I get this "Cannot find the RUS responsible for domain". Also, when I did the last SP update to Ex2007 it also gave me the warning msg of "Cannot find the RUS responsible for domain".
