i have access to certain email boxes because im an administrator.
i added some and now i am trying to get rid of them but i cant.  the email boxes show up in the left pane of outlook.  I can't open the email boxes and i also can't disconnect or delete them through the advanced email account settings.  the reason i can't delete them is because they are not listed.
i know they  still there though because my ost grows to an enormous size.  49 gig on the local machine.  i only have 500 meg on the email server.

any ideas on how i can get rid of these previously used accounts that are showing up in my left side pane

here is where it gets strange to me.  I have wiped this laptop clean with a new windows install.  reinstalled microsoft office 2010.  connected outlook back to my profile only....
and those old emailboxes still show up in the left pane.  and i can't delete them.
and my ost file grows to 49 gig when in exchange it is 500 meg.
any ideas?

1 - Close Outlook
2 - Go to Control Panel -> Mail (Make a search with Mail as a keywork)
3 - Mail Setup - Outlook will pop up
4 - Click on Email-Accounts
5 - Remove all mailbox that you don't need
