    I would start by double checking that you have the proper permissions.  You also probably need to be the owner of the folder.  If that doesn't work you could trying deleting it from system manager on the exchange server.

    I am not the owner of the folder,  the owner of the folder has asked me "how to delete the folder".   How does the owner of the folder delete the folder then?
