"Connect to" dialog box for old Exchange profile keeps popping up after Launching Outlook 2007 and connecting to new Exchange profile.

I just switched from one hosted exchange service to another. I'm in Windows XP and using Outlook 2007.  I set up a new profile for the new Exchange acount and deleted the profile for the old account.   Now when i launch Outlook I get the logon for my new hosted exchange, which works fine, but for some reason the old exchange host logon pops up shortly afterward.  I don't understand why this is happening since I deleted the profile for the old hosted exchange account.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Found the solution look for Old host server name in file called "redirect.xml" in
%userprofile%/Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.

I deleted the file and the popups for the old host went away.

Go to Control Panel and open MAIL (without Outlook close).
Select Show Profile under the Profiles section and see if there is more than one profiles within.

When you open Email Accounts, check if you have anything setup in Internet Calendar  Address books?

I am also having the same problem.  I went as far as uninstalling Outlook and then reinstalling.  I then deleted all profiles before setting up the new one and it still tries to connect to the old host.  This happens on both machines that I have set up so far.
