Hi

I have moved the mail to a different system, however the SBS will continue to be used for everything else

Whats the best way to disable or decactivate exchange so no system resources are wasted on it?

Simply disable the exchange services or is there a better way

thanks

You can uninstall Exchange 2003 from the SBS 2003 Setup CD/DVD, just make sure you've migrated all your mail properly first.

If you are migrating to SBS 2008 or a newer version of Exchange, you will need to do some additional migration tasks before removing the legacy Exchange server.

So you don't want shared calendars or anything like that any more either?
Has the Exchange account been removed from all the client PCs?

I think that disabling the services would be the only way to stop it from running, but I wouldn't recommend that unless your system was seriously under-resourced. I'm pretty sure if you turn off the Exchange services, you'll start to encounter other issues on the SBS server. Off the top of my head, I think the health check and monitoring notifications rely on Exchange, and there may be other system services which start acting unusually. I would just leave the Exchange services running to be honest, otherwise you risk causing other issues.

dont want to uninstall, just disable

the outlook clients do not connect to the SBS exchange server in any way now, there is no exchange account

Simply want to disable the exchange system as part of SBS, but not nuke it so i could reenable without to much drama, in the unlikely sistuation i needed it

From memory the exchange setup is a small collection of active services including mail handling, mailboxes, maintenance etc

Start Menu, Run, services.msc, order by Name, See how many begin with "Exchange" or "Microsoft Exchange"

Post them here and we should be able to tell which ones you can disable from automatically starting.
