    Where do Deleted Contact Subfolders Go? (Outlook 2003)

    When doing a merge to email via Word 2003, when I get to the point where I select recipients, the list of contact folders includes all the contact folders and subfolders, including the ones I've deleted. I can not find where they may be so I can make a permanent deletion. In the mean time, things can be a little confusing.

    Thanks in advance.

    Any deleted Folders, including Contacts Folders, are usually subfolders (not items) under the Deleted Items Folders. Each PST and Server Mailbox will have its own Deleted Items Folder. You can permanently delete Folders from those Deleted Items Folders.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Jake000 on 17-Aug-04 08:41. )</P>Hi John, I guess I should have said I've done that. Each session deletes all the files in the deleted items folder. That's why I'm mystified! Is there a registry entry somewhere that the mail merge function calls?

    Since you clarified the situation, and I'm not a mail merge user, I don't have any insight. I assume the Merge Wizard is listing whatever it used in the past. Can you post a PNG graphic of what this selection list looks like? Can you highlight the "ghost" and delete it from the folder listing presented at the merge? If you deliberately select one of these ghost folders in the merge, what happens?
