Prior to 2008 Outlook Express was part of the default user profile when you created Terminal Server users and was a messy thing to get rid of.  With 2008 R2 and RDS is that no longer an issue?

Sorry for the confusion. I am trying to find out whether Outlook Express is still built-in with 2008 R2 or  not? I am not trying to replace it. I just want it gone as not in the default user profile and thus doesn't show up every time I try to create a new user.
