How to delete a pst file in outlook 2007?

I am trying to delete a pst file in Outlook 2007.  When I attempt to delete it I receive the following error: "You cannot delete this outlook data file.  Configuring information if the file is being copied to your new default data file. You can delete the file after this information is copied."

Please advise if there is a way to get around this.  We use Exchange 2003 and I have no need for a personal data file.

Thanks

I would just go to the control panel and open up mail, remove the uses profile, this will break the connection between the pst.  now go to the pst file and delete it.  After that just simply resetup the users account to as if outlook has not been used.
