Windows 7: Outlook 2010--Remove Imported Contacts?

Outlook 2010--Remove Imported Contacts?

About the time my husband left his old job we got our new Windows 7 laptop, purchased and installed Office 2010, including Outlook. Since his new job is in the same industry, he wanted to "bring home" his Outlook contacts. He exported his contacts at work (PST file) to a jump drive. I imported these to our new Outlook. Little did I realize just how many contacts he had!

As I am thinking about getting a new cell phone to sync with Outlook, I really don't want to carry around his business contacts with me! I think I will just save his PST file until he really needs it.

Now... how can I remove his contacts I imported? If necessary I could "empty" all my contacts (if that's possible to do) and re-export/re-import my personal contacts from my old laptop.

So glad to find this Windows 7 forum! Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks,
Lisa

Hi Lisa

Welcome to Seven Forums

You could try the following from Office Support:

Remove an address book

  1. Click the File tab.
  2. Click Account Settings, and then click Account Settings.

  1. On the Address Books tab, click the address book that you want to remove, and then click Remove.

Hope this helps in some way
