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?

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.

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!
