Outlook 2003 help

I have created a few different folder while in contacts.  I ended up moving certain contacts into certain folders based on whether they were family, friends, associates...etc.  Some of the folders I created were "Friends", "Family", "Associates", and so on.

I decided to delete some of those folders and didn't want to seperate the contacts afterall.  While I am viewing the "Contacts tab" (the buton at the bottom of outlook) I can no longer see the folders up at the top.  I now only have Business, Personal, and Contacts folders.  I import new contacts from a database everyday, and while in the importing window I can see Deleted Items, and then all those folders I have created and then deleted are all in there.  I need to scroll up a litle bit to find the contacts folder.  This gets me confused because sometime I import my contacts into the deleted items folders, rather than the correct contact folders.  

Is there a way I can delete the "Deleted Items" folders from viewing there?

I have a screen shot if anyone would like to see it.  It might help you better understand why it is doing that.  Let me know and I can email it.  I cannot see a way to attach a file here.
Any Ideas?

No you can't.

Why not delete the "deleted folders" from the "deleted items" folder?

i ended up deleting outlook and reinstalling.  I don't know what happened, but when I clicked on the deleted items, it claimed tat the folder was empty.  I just reinstalled and it seemd to correct the problem.  Mod's, how do I close this question?  Thanks!

Folders are treated like items.
Once deleted, they appear as sub-folders in the 'deleted-items' folder.

Only if deleted again, will they disapper from the import/export window.
A re-installation was not necessary.

What I should of added was ....
You need to go to the 'deleted items' folder and actually delete the folders from there.
