I need a very simple and easy to understand explanation for why when I delete someone from my Address Book, they stay in the Contacts folder? I've been doing this for years and now with 2010 -- I have delete them from BOTH locations and I'm still not sure they are gone.

When you delete a contact from contacts folder, this also deletes the entry from the Address book. But when you delete a contact from the address book, the entry would still shows up in the contacts folders.

If you want to delete a contact from both contact and Address book, then delete the contact from Contacts folder.
