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.

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