You can't actually delete a user if they've put in any content. You can however deactive them by removing them from all the groups.

For a disabled user the following might work. I'm not sure what the deal is for removed users since they don't appear in the admin list.

If you are the admin, you can:

1. Go to Confluence Admin-> Manage Users.

2. Enable the user if necessary.

3. Reset the user's password (if you don't know it) and make a note of the new password.

4. Log out and then log in as the user (with the new password).

3. Go to the profile page (users/viewuserprofile.action?username=???????).

4. Click Picture on the left and click Delete under the picture set to delete the current picture.

5. Choose a replacement icon or upload an icon from your desktop to use for those no longer with us.

6. Click Set Profile Picture to set the new icon.

Seems like a lot of work, doesn't it? But it looks to me like bulk functions for users are limited in Confluence if you aren't using a separate user management tool (like Crowd or some other LDAP tool).
