Hello,

I deleted manually contact folders that were created with VBA

These deleted folders still appear in the list "Show names from the : " in

the address book

The contacts themselves still apparear in each deleted folder!

I do not understand why. Did I miss something when I created them with VBA?

How can I clean that list with VBA and fix the situation ?

Many thanks

Do those contacts folders show up in the Folder List? Where are they now,

under Deleted Items? If so just delete them from there.

If you delete something using the Outlook object model it gets sent to

Deleted Items. If you want it completely deleted from there you need to find

the items in Deleted Items and delete them from there. You can also handle

the ItemAdd() event of the Items collection of the Deleted Items folder and

when that fires you can do the deletions if the item being added is one you

want to act on.

In fact I first did not notice the difference bewteen "delete from my

contacts" and "detele" when I right click on contact folder

"delete from my contacts" (I translated it from my french version, so may be

not the exact english wording) did not really delete they and they still

showed up in the list of folders

I then just delete them and had a confirmation message then but the deleted

folders still appear in the list "Show names from the : " in the address

book

I haf to go in the "E mail Accounts" settings "Directory/View or change

existing directories or address books to delete them completely which is not

very convenient
