How to remove another user's archive mailbox folder from an MS Outlook Profile

A user added other users mailboxes to his profile using
a) File, account settings, account settings, change, advanced, add (open these additional mailboxes.)

They were accessed and later removed from the profile using the same procedure
b)  File, account settings, account settings, change, advanced, add (open these additional mailboxes.)

However they are still showing up as archive - username on the user MS Outlook profile.

The folders persist from PC to PC so it is not local to the PC.

I think you can just right click on the Archive in the Outlook Sidebar and then select Close and it should close it (might get an error saying it cannot be found).  I have seen where a roaming profile coupled with redirected folders and network archive PST's have done similar things.  Kind of fun to unravel.

Might we have the contents of that error message?  I am assuming it is something about not being able to locate the file?

Just create a new Outlook profile. This will fix the issue.

Microsoft fixed it. IF user A is accessing user's B mailbox then we had to Apply a hot fix to Outlook 2010, give the user A's full permission to user B's mailbox then disable user's A automapping on user's B mailbox.
