Is there a way to mass delete outlook profiles?

Hi Everyone,

I am currently leading a project to mass deploy Outlook 2013 to organization.

The workstations that we are deploying currently have a profile and outlook 2010.

We are performing an in place upgrade from Outlook 2010 to 2013.

What we are finding is that the profiles will staying on the workstation after the upgrade occurs. This is a negative as we are changing email hosting providers and we would like all profiles removed to add the new profiles of the new mail hosting provider. (we do not want the old mailbox or profile on the system).

Note this is volume install of Outlook 2013 only and we are using the Microsoft office customization tool to configure the install.

I was not sure if there was a way to mass delete all outlook profiles via a script or via through the Microsoft Office Customization Tool.

If you want them all gone, then you just need a script or GP setting that deletes the content under
