I think you are talking about removing the settings on a workstation.  If so, on the PC go into the control panel and go into the mail settings.  Delete profile that you no longer want.

Good point jamie gillespie.....

Keep in mind all data should be in exchange anyway and deleting the profile on a PC I believe does not delete the OST file.  I am not sure what happens to the NK2 file or any of the other outlook files though, so in what is always good advice do as jamie gillespie says and BACKUP, BACKUP, test your backup, and then delete!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

To map the NK2 file to a new profile, just rename it to match the profile name.

Always best practice to backup anyway, even if you think you can get away with it =)

you need to close MS Outlook and then go to control panel and then mail settings. by default should be exchange or outlook profile. before deleting make sure there is no pop3 account or any local setting and then delete it.

If you want to remove the files as well go to c:\documents and settings\[user name profile]\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook\  in this directory you need to delete all the files except any archive pst files. it is better to move them to backup directory. once you create new setting the exchange will create new files.
