How to remove the SMTP Service from Windows 2012 R2…

Had to install a SMTP gateway on a Windows 2012 R2 host which already had OS SMTP service installed for testing a firewall.  Normally, I would have removed via Windows Features/Roles system but the option to remove feature wad greyed out.  However, using PowerShell I was able to remove the service with no problems in an administratively-elevated PowerShell prompt:

This will restart the machine too to complete the uninstall.

I was then able to install the SMTP Gateways software as normal.  This will also help on Exchange 2013 installation also.
