I've got an annoying issue with an Exchange 2007 Server. It looks to me like the last Engineer removed Exchange 2003 somewhat incorrectly.
There is a queue with reference to a Public Folder that is constantly filling up. The emails are unimportant as no one in the office has laid claim to them.
I've managed to find several references to the old Server in ADSIedit but I am unsure if I can safely remove them. The majority are listed under 'first administrative group' from the original install, I'm pretty confident I can remove these without issue.
There are a couple of references outside of the old administrative group, like under the routing connector for the new server, there is reference in the properties to the old one.
Are these safe to remove?
