You can use the Shell to uninstall an existing transport agent on a computer that has the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Hub Transport server role or Edge Transport server role installed. You can uninstall transport agents configured on the local computer. When the transport agent is uninstalled, Exchange unregisters the DLL files used with the agent. Exchange doesn't remove any files, registry keys, or other objects added by the installation of the transport agent. For more information about transport agents, see Understanding Transport Agents.
