Yes, leave out the soldermask gerbers, but replace your existing fab note with one that explicitly states there is no soldermask on this PCB.
In order to remove the soldermask from entire board ,give the solder mask layer with soldermask property on entire board .The attached board shows the board with " no solder mask ' layer .The blue color shows the mask layer for entire board ,after the fab process there will not have any mask layer on board.Hope this will helps..
Thanks and Regards

That's what I am going to do. In my case, I could have done it differently, please see my other response to Sabitha below.
In my case, for this build, I will be removing the entire Gerber.
However, we had this board looked at by different vendors and some of them (not the one we are probably going with), want the Solder Mask Layer to use for the board outline. For those cases, I would have the Solder Mask Layer as you describe, essentially being a completely filled shape that describes the board outline with no gaps for any pads, etc.
Thanks and best,
Thanks to David and Sabitha for the help! It is very much appreciated!
Glad to see that you resolved your problem
