Contacts in Deleted Items Folder - Can't be moved

We are running 1 Exchange 2000 server (sp3) on a Windows 2000 sp3 supporting 400 users who are using windows 2000 and Outlook 2000.  I have one user who has somehow moved his contacts into the deleted items folder. He swears he doesn't know how they got there. I tried to move the contacts back but receive an error message:    Can't Move the items. Special items, including the Inbox, Contacts, Calendar, Notes, Tasks and journals cannot be moved.

How did they get there in the first place if you can't move them?

Thanks in advance

(obviously substituting the contacts folder for the calendar folder mentioned in that article).
