    Recover Deleted Contacts Group (2000/9.0.0.2711)

    Having clicked on a individual in my contact list, I thought I was deleting that individual from within the group, and when prompted that changes had been made and did I want to continue with delete (or something like that), I said yes. The entire 100+group is now gone. Undo is grayed out. It's not in Deleted Files or the Recyle Bin.

    Can you tell me where I might find it?

    Is it in the Deleted Items folder in Outlook?

    If not, is this a stand-alone version of Outlook, or are you connected to an Exchange server?

    It is not in the Deleted Items ... I checked for it as a folder and as an item, since I'm not sure exactly how a group would appear. I have just finished going through the Deleted Items again, one message at a time.

    This is a stand-alone version.

    In that case, do you have a recent backup copy of your .pst file? If so, you could open the backup copy in Outlook, and copy the contacts you need back to your "active" contacts folder.

    There are third-party utiltities that claim to be able to undelete removed Outlook items; you'll find themsearching Google for outlook undelete items, but I have no personal experience with any of them.

    I do not have a recent backup.

    Last night I sent an e-mail to that group. Can I reconfigure the group from my "sent" copy? If so, can I do all of them simultaneously, or would I have to do them individually?

    Interactively, you can add recipients one by one to your contacts; it might be possible to write a macro to process them all.
