Disable 1 Outlook 2013 account and keep the other

I have a user who has 2 accounts in Outlook 2013 on ExchangeServer 365.  I deleted one on exchange server.  He wants to keep the inbox, sent, etc from that account for some time for searching purposes.  I cannot figure out a way to make outlook quit trying to receive mail from that account.  I tried the following, but outlook still periodically tries to connect to that account and, thus brings up the annoying login box:

    You can open the Send/Receive Groups dialog by pressing the CTRL+ALT+S keyboard shortcut or as an alternative use:
        Outlook 2007 and previous
        Tools-> Options…-> tab Mail Setup-> button Send/Receive…
        Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013
        tab Send/Receive-> button Send/Receive Groups-> Define Send/Receive Groups…
    In the Send/Receive Groups dialog press the Edit… button.
    In the left section, select the account for which you want to modify the send/receive settings.
    In the Account Options section you can disable the option for “Receive mail items”.
    Press the OK button until you have closed all open dialogs.

If I delete the account from outlook, will it delete the inbox, sent, etc...?   scared to try without confirmation :)

A little late to do this but the correct procedure is for the user to export as a pst the account to be deleted. The user can now remove that account from outlook but still add that pst into outlook. you can then delete the account in exchange.  I'm not sure if the user can still export the .ost (offline store) into the .pst (personal store) but I'd give it a shot.. if it works then great.. otherwise it is a learning experience.
