You can use the Shell to remove an existing Foreign connector in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. A Foreign connector can only be installed on a computer running Exchange 2010 that has the Hub Transport server role installed. A Foreign connector uses a Drop directory to send messages to a local messaging server that doesn't use SMTP as its primary transport mechanism.
