Listed under Contacts folder besides my "Contact" is listed Contacts in iCloud and Local Contacts in iCloud. trying to get rid of the iCloud ones. I click on them and I get the error "The set of folders cannot be opened. An unexpected error has occurred. MAPI was unable to load the information service ...APLZOD.dll. Be sure the service is correctly installed and configured" Well I switched from an iPhone to a Samsung phone and did away with my apple account, iTunes and iCloud. Obviously I should have taken care of Outlook first. Any suggestions or solutions to get rid of these two extra folders? I also have an extra Calendar called iCloud calendar which gets the same error. Thanks,
Did you sign out of iCloud on the desktop? If not, sign out.

If signed out and it's still left behind, in Outlook, go to file, account settings, data files tab and remove the iCloud data file.
Thank you so much!! Worked like a dream. Did not know to do that.

I'm trying to remove icloud from outlook 2007. I signed out of icloud, uninstalled icloud software but I'm left with two problems.

1. When creating a new email clicking the "To" address returns and error (address list cannot be displayed) as it is still looking for iCloud address book. If I clicking the error message twice I reach the normal window and can then select Contacts from the Address Book down arrow.

2. In Contacts the iCloud group is still there with no contact listed. I receive the error message at the start of this thread when I try to remove it.

Any help would be appreciated.
on the To: open the Address book (Ctrl+Shift+B), click it's Tools, Options and select your contacts folder at the bottom.

Is the iCloud addin enabled in file, Options, addin?
Thank you for your response.

I located a remanent iCloud file listed under Tools, Account Setting, Data Files, just above the normal Outlook.pst file. The deletion of this file fix my two issues.

Thanks again.
When I try to check out of iCloud it warns me that doing so will delete all of my distribution lists in Outlook, in spite of the fact that I am not using the iCloud address file and it currently contains no records. Am I going to lose these things in Outlook if I log off iCloud and then uninstall iCould from my PC?
No, that only means anything in the iCloud will be removed from outlook and you'll lose the icloud contents if you don't have a backup.
you can retrieve your files by yourself and there are lots of programes to do that such as Ipad Manager I used it for times and it is free,work as excellent as you think,The main thing is to stop using the external hard disk until you use this tool, and avoid writing any files to it.
