I think that you should re-install server completly to remove iredmail

Re: uninstall iRedMail

iRedMail is designed to be deployed on a fresh/new/clean server, this way we can achieve best success for installation, otherwise we have to deal with a lot exceptions like "i have Apache installed, iRedMail installer doesn't detect and use it and it installs Nginx", " i have nextCloud running, iRedMail installer overrides my Nginx config", ...

You can remove the software binary packages installed by iRedMail manually, also their config files and data. It's too risk to remove by a script without confirm one-by-one. Incorrectly removing any data will cause more trouble.

iRedMail is not the traditional "software", it's a solution which installs and configures many softwares for you. you can not simply remove one software as complete uninstall.
