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.

Backup the data first just in case

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!

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

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.
