Question: Uninstallation of Outlook for Mac

Could anybody please advise on how to uninstall Outlook for Mac and Lync from a MacBook? I have followed instructions listed in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2398768, however, Lync and Outlook for Mac are still present.


Thanks in advance.

MacBook Air (11-inch Mid 2013), OS X Yosemite (10.10.1), Outlook for Mac & Lync

Answer:

Reformatting the drive to get rid of one app is massive overkill. It's just a matter of finding it.


What you linked to is not part of Office 2011. Outlook in Office 2011 is version 14. The download is version 15, and is a desktop portion of Office 365.


There are only four items installed by this package. Locate and remove:


1) Microsoft Outlook - /Applications


2) Microsoft AutoUpdate - /Library/Application Support/Microsoft/MAU2.0/


3) com.microsoft.office.licensing.helper.plist - /Library/LaunchDaemons/


4) com.microsoft.office.licensingV2.helper - /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/

Outlook is part of Office for Mac 2011. If you deleted the folder Microsoft Office 2011 from the Applications folder, which is step 2 in the linked instructions, then Outlook couldn't help being removed with it since it's in that folder.


Have no idea what Lync is. That isn't part of Office.
