I have done research and still not confident. I have an Exchange 2010 server and Edge server. I will be moving the Exchange server this weekend to a new location. I inherited the server and would like to remove the edge server. I believe I should remove the edge subscription , create a new connector and  install anti spam agents on the exchange box and all is good. Is this correct or am I missing a critical step?

That is pretty much it.
I would actually do it the other way round though - install the agents, create the new connector and then remove the subscription. That way you don't get email flow issues.

Thanks Simon. You have been a big help to me over the years. I am move the server to a new location. I would like to have a way back if something goes wrong and minimize downtime.  I just need to remove the subscription and I can just shut the edge server down in case I need to reverse correct?

If you increase the cost on the Send Connector created for the Edge server it will not be used. That will allow you to test mail flow before you shutdown the server. However if you want to remove the Subscription and then shutdown the server then that will work as well. The Edge server shouldn't be a member of the domain so wouldn't need to be removed gracefully.
