I am able to delete if the item is exisiting in a user created folder using the below given code, but
I want it for the default folders

Set ol = New Outlook.Application
  Set olns = ol.GetNamespace("MAPI")
  Set TestFolder = olns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Folders("test")
  Set TestItems = TestFolder.Items
  NumItems = TestItems.Count

Not sure what you are asking.  If you want to reference the default contact folder use the following line.

Set TestFolder = olns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts)
