Disconnecting PST files from Users Outlook 2010?

I have found the GPO that can disabled auto archiving which works well.
I'd like to know if there is a way of removing psts from users inbox's using GPO...?

Thanks

Sorry about that.  Still early.

Remove all PST files except SharePoint Lists

I don't know if there's a way to do it via GPO, but here is a script that works pretty well.

If Stores(i).ExchangeStoreType = 3 Then
  If Stores(i).DisplayName <> "SharePoint Lists" then
   Set objFolder = Stores(i).GetRootFolder
   objOutlook.Session.RemoveStore objFolder
  End if
Else

Now the problem with this is that it will simply get rid of the .PST files, there will still be references in the user's profile and they will receive an error message.

I don't think there's a GPO to modify the profile to get rid of the .PST references.
