    Contacts Folders (MSO 2003)

    I have an add-in from Sperry Software for removing duplicates -- emails and contacts.

    But, when I run the Contacts part, it asks me for a folder to put the duplicates in, and the one I selected it said "The default item type for this folder is not Contacts..."

    How do I set a folder to be a Contacts folder type?

    Regards,

    When you create the new folder, the dialog has a "Folder Contains" dropdown where you select the Item type - so you should select Contact Items.

    John:

    Yea, I just found that part...I had set up the folder originally on the folder list with right-click, and you don't get a choice there, nor can you, apparently, change types after that fact.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    ? When I right click the folder List and select New Folder, I get a choice of item type.

    No, you can't change the folder type retroactively.
