Attempting to delete all of a users local contacts ( we are installing a product that will sync public contacts with local contacts folder), we select all the contacts and select delete, we receive an error message from Outlook 2003 (w/Exchange) not enougn memory to compete task or something like that.  There are thousands of contacts, what causes this and are we relegated to deleting a few at a time.

Hello,

You are getting the error because you are trying to delete too many contacts at once. My suggestion is to use a mailbox management policy to purge the contacts folder for anyone you need to. Once your mailbox management policy runs, you should then delete the policy so it doesn't get purged again once you setup the sync.
