I have a live mail access through Microsoft Outlook with Outlook Conector. On
my desktop at home I use it as defalt mail and I can synchronize it with my
Windows Mobile fine.

On my notebook, I have an pop account as my default mail, but I have my live
mail configured there. I want to delete the contacts folder of the default
mail and use just the live mail contacts folder. I went on Account Config
menu, Contacts and delete the Contacts Folder there, but the folder still

How can I permanent delete it to use just the live contacts as default
contact folder?

Live contacts needs to be set as the default account if you want to use it's
contacts folder. if you just want it listed first when you hit the To
button, press Ctrl+Shift+B to open the address book, then check it's tools,
options menu. Select it to show first and to keep personal contacts in, and
move it to the top of the list for checking names.

Note that you can't remove the contacts folder from your default folder set,
but changing the setting on the options dialog should meet your needs.
