Is there a quick, easy way to delete everything in Outlook without
uninstalling and reinstalling it?

I am giving my old computer to a friend and want to make sure everything
(calendar, email, tasks etc) is blank before I do.

Any help would be appreciated.

Uninstalling OL will have no affect on data as it is retained.
To delete data, locate all *.pst files and delete
Also delete the profile in the Mail Applet
Of course to permanently remove *all* data on the PC at the very least
Delete partitions then format/reinstall win.

With Outlook closed, just delete your pst file.
You will have to delete Email Account information separately.

Thanks for the prompt response - it worked (of course!)
