Outlook won't remove Exchange Mailboxes: "This group of folders is associated with an email account. To remove the account...."
What a way to start the morning: Outlook added 25 account folders to my list of folders. (perhaps that's why it took four minutes to open.) Selecting a folder, then Right-click to close "Ted Kelly" brought up a message: "

1. Use Exchange Management Shell Powershell to turn automapping false:
-User -AccessRights FullAccess -InheritanceType All -Automapping $false
