  • Hi IrwinBats, 

    In my above suggestion, I have provide a link which is “How to Remove an Exchange 2007 Organization”.

    Because you want to uninstall all Exchange 2007, please refer to the following order:

    1. Exchange 2007 that has CAS role only
    2. Exchange 2007 that holds CAS and HUB roles
    3. Standalone Exchange 2007 server [Multi-role] > Mailbox, CAS, Hub roles
