I have edited one of my scripts that I use to remove other properties to provide a starting point.

Hopefully you will get the idea of what its trying to do:
first part is to enumerate all the objects in the specified OU.
 the for each of these objects check if they have a "MAPI" protocol and if so remove it.
if you update line 10 for your DN name \ ldap path to OU it will just display the objects it will be checking.
I would suggest you use it to pick on one and test it by uncommenting line 4 & 5 etc.

Just ensure you test it first !!!!

SySConUN=""
SySConPW=""

'x=getdata("LDAP://Servername/CN=test account,ou=Users,DC=test,dc=local")
'wscript.quit

 Set objAdRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
 varDefaultNC = objAdRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")

 SQLSYSTEMS = "SELECT adspath,cn, distinguishedName,displayname FROM 'LDAP://Servername/ou=user accounts," & varDefaultNC & "'"
 Set SySConn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
 Set SysCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
 SySConn.Provider = "ADSDSOObject"
 Sysconn.Open "Active Directory Provider" ,SySConUN,SySConPW
 set SysCommand.Activeconnection = SysConn
 SysCommand.commandtext = SQLSYSTEMS
 SYSCommand.Properties("Page Size")=100
 'wscript.echo SQLSYSTEMS
 Set SySrs = SysCommand.Execute

  if SySrs.recordcount >0 then

    MailboxesinIT6=SySrs.recordcount
    Do While Not SySrs.EOF Or SySrs.BOF
    ' x=getdata(SySrs.fields("adspath")
    wscript.echo SySrs.fields("adspath") ' diable this line once its working!
    SySrs.MoveNext
    Loop

  end if
 SySConn.close
 Set SySConn=nothing


function getdata(byref userDN)
 Set RefUser= getobject(UserDN)
 x= Refuser.protocolSettings
 newcnt=0
 Userupdate=0
 dim y()

 if isarray(x) then
  for pass= 0 to ubound(x)
    if left(x(pass),4)<>"MAPI" then 
      redim preserve y(newcnt)
      y(newcnt)=x(pass)
      newcnt=newcnt+1
    else
     'MAPI found so we will update the record
     Userupdate=1
    end if
  next
  if Update=1 then 
    Refuser.putex 2,"protocolSettings",y
    refuser.setinfo
    wscript.echo UserDN & chr(9) & "MAPI Removed"
   else
    wscript.echo UserDN & chr(9) & "Ignored"
   end if   
  'for t=0 to ubound(y)
  'wscript.echo y(t)
  'next
  else
  'not an array code here if needed.
 end if
end function
