We just rolled out Office 2010 to our pilot group & we are finding that users are seeing 2 profiles for Outlook, there own profile & a default outlook profile. As long as this default outlook profile exists my users have trouble sending email, things just pile up in the Outbox. If we delete the default outlook profile mail flow just fine.

I am looking for a way to delete the default outlook profile via a script since I have over 5000 users once this rolls out to my folks. Powershell would be my prefered method if possible.

TIA.

Hi,

Profiles can be named darn near anything by users. They're all in the same place in the registry, though:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles

You can write a VBS (or whatever language you prefer) to use WMI to access the registry and remove what you like. But you'll have to wade through the various keys looking for the identity of the old server before you'll feel safe nuking a profile.
