MAILBOX may not be running Exchange or even be running, but have you tried
pinging the IP address that was associated with that server?  If it pings,
then you may have your DNS set to resolve that IP to that NetBIOS name.  If
true, E2K may think that Exchange server is still up and running?  I don't
know, just a SWAG, since I'm not running E2K.

In response to both your posts -
SRS is running, and when i connect with exchange 55 admin and try to delete
the phantom server i get the following error: "you cannot delete the
exchange server because it is still active. Shut the server down and try
again." needless to say, there is no server active with that name.

Strangely, there does appear to be an entry for the phantom server in the
computers OU.  I think it was grandfathered in due to a static mapping in
the DNS server. I've removed both entries - AD and DNS, and continue to get
the same error. We are on E2k SP1, and the errors that were generated in the
event log are specifically:

If there is an SRS service running on your upgraded server then you could
try attaching to that server using Exchange 55 Admin and deleting the
directory entry for the phantom server from there.  This would be part of
the normal process for removing the last 55 server in a mixed site/admin
group.

Question 2:
My experience is that you can stop this service without any problem on a
stand-alone server with nothing on it than ExchangeServer and an AV-Product.
Question 3: On 5.5 I would have suggested to edit the registry and remove
the entry. But on E2K I've not looked for something similar. But it's worth
a try to check the registry. In the AD you don't see a computer object for
it? You're on SP1 or SP2, right? And yes any EventIDs to your error
descriptions?
