Why in God's name allow you to delete an entire Business Contact without

prompting when you accidentally click Delete instead of Remove?????? That is

absurd!!!!

Anyway, several times now I've accidentally deleted a Business Contact. So I

go to the Deleted Items folder under Business Contact Manger in the folder

list, right click on the deleted contact, select move to folder and move it

back to the Business Contacts folder. That's all well and good, but now ALL

communication history is gone and the button to link it to an Account is

greyed out. I NEED this info. It is a devastating loss otherwise.

Is it gone forever?

And for the record, the documentation for this product is the worst thing I

have ever seen and finding answers to incredibly common questions is nearly

impossible.
