Deleting cached usernames from outlook 2003/2007 login drop-down window

I have an outlook client that has three different profiles and each profile corresponds to a different email address. When I connect to a particular profile, on the window that prompts for the username and password has a drop-down menu that stores previous  credentials. How do I delete these cached usernames?

Here is a screen shot of the window I am referring to if my question is not clear. This is the login window that pops up when you try to login to an email profile. As you can see what I am trying to delete are the saved "User name" drop down cache. Thank you

EndureKona, thans for the info. I tried what you said and it worked great. I was able to add the necessary usernames into the drop down menu following your instructions. But let me ask you this, would you happen to know how to actually delete an entry that is in there that is not associated with a username for a profile or server connection. Even if i delete all the connections using your method i still see one or two user names still in the drop down that i do not know how to delete. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

hummm...so from the drop down you still see usernames but the list is clear?  
What I would do is open the registry from the top level run a search for geiap\geek to see where the key is located and this might give a hint.
