Client has an 11GB PST file, moving from Outlook2003 to 2010, the PST file was put on the SBS2003 server, so when client starts Outlook2010, complete lockup while that big files chugs away on the network.  How can I open Outlook2010 with no Personal Folders?  I want to sever the connection to that thing.  In older Outlook versions, I believe I could right-click, Properties, and mess with the client settings.  And there used to be a switch /cleanpst but that is no more.  on a different computer, I created smaller PST files as per http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/Pub0009/LPMArticle.asp?ID=52
but how do I get rid of the Personal Folder that is trying to load?

Yes.  Where do I do that?  Every time I start Outlook, off we go to the Personal Folders lockup.  How can I remove a profile from Outlook 2010 without starting Outlook?
