Outlook public folder - cannot delete an item.

Trying to delete an item in my all public folder and get a message "The item could not be deleted.  It was either moved or already deleted, or access was denined"

I do have editor right to this public folder.  Any ideas?

Determine folder access through permissions
Permissions to public folders are usually determined by an administrator or someone in your organization who owns a folder for a specific project or subject.
For the folders you have permission to access, you typically can read items and add items to the folder but you cannot delete items other than the ones you add.
