I have made my own Contacts folders in Outlook 2007. I would like to get rid

of the empty, default Contacts folder. Is that possible? If not, is it at

least possible to make one of my custom Contacts folders the default? Thanks.

Neither of those is possible. The default folder is always the Contacts

folder in the default information store. Why not just move your contacts into

that folder?

You can't delete the default. You can't make your custom folder default. You

can copy the contents of one folder to the default folder and delete the

custom one.

Note: we don't recommend using multiple folders. We recommend using one

folder and categories to separate the contacts.
