Remove Exchange server from the domain

We are migrating to a Hosted Exchange solution.  I will be removing our current Exchange server from the domain once the migration is done.  Is there anything I need to do to in Active Directory before removing Exchange, or can I just uninstall Exchange from this server once all users have been migrated to the hosted solution?

Thanks,

cja

The newer version of Exchange servers can be uninstalled and let the AD be running.

Unlike Exchange 2003 they do not require AD cleanup.

yes 03 is a mess as i posted, 2007/2010 are much cleaner, but i still like looking into the schema to make sure the bits and pieces are gone.
