outlook 2010 exchange 2010

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

James .... simply remove your account from the "Manage Full Mailbox Access" from those Additional accounts in Exchange and then restart the Outlook if not work a new Outlook profile and check

This may help,

try running outlook.exe /resetnavpane or outlook.exe /cleanprofile

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?
