Outlook requests credentials that are not mine

Outlook 2010
Exchange 2010

I have previously added another persons email account to my outlook 2010, when Outlook started it understandably requested both my username and password and the other accoounts. I have since deleted this account but the login box that appears still has the other accounts info filled in and requests for that account credentials? How can I get rid of this? Tried uninstalling outlook and re-creating profile.

Buried in Control Panel> Manage Credentials, you should find the credentials that you are prompted with - simply delete the credentials and they won't appear again.

Perhaps I'm thinking too simple but did you try 'use another account' and then tick 'remember my credentials'?

Go into registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Exchange

There are several profiles for your Outlook. Some of them contains REG_SZ keys like this:

/o=your_domain/ou=Exchange Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=your_mailbox_name
or
/o=your_domain/ou=Exchange Administrative Group/cn=Recipients/cn=deleted_mailbox_name
and some profiles doesn't have any of these keys.

Delete all profiles which contain other (deleted) mailbox name keys.

No, a reg entry for the deleted mailbox does not exist.

I actually tried deleting the entire 'profiles' folder from that reg path, it prompted to recreate the profile, which I did, but the same log in box with the other user as default appears.

Did you change permissions on the other mailbox in order to give yourself full access? If so - try to remove these permissions on your Exchange.

Are you sure you zapped all the relevant credentials from the Credential Manager?  It usually works for me.
