Clearing ALL information from Outlook 2010


Outlook version
Outlook 2010 64 bit
Email Account
It has been a few years since I have used Outlook 2010, it is still on my computer. And with the problems I am having with my other email program, I have decided to go back to Outlook. There are still OLD accounts, emails and address's in the program. Is there a way to clear all and put the new I have backed up in to Outlook 2010 with out doubling some of the information and such?

Go to Control panel, find Mail and delete the profile to start with a fresh profile.

If you want to clear out old pst files, there are either in Documents \ Outlook Files or in %localappdata%\Microsoft\outlook (type or paste in it the windows explorer address bar and press enter) . %appdata%\Microsoft\outlook also has some files you might want to delete.
