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?

Server Manager.

2.In the Features Summary section, click Add features.

3.Select the Desktop Experience check box, and then click Next.

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.
