Flash is not needed to move email and I have never seen that Exchange needed it. Just uninstall it. I am not sure why Flash would be on a server in the first place.

You shouldn't need it.  Most likely came along with the Desktop Experience feature.

If you remove that feature you can still add the standard desktop icons by using:
"%Systemroot%\system32\rundll32.exe" shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,0
