I have two Contacts Folders in Outlook 2003 - I need to rename one to distinguish it from the other

Following running a detect and repair tool on a users machine we had to completely re-setup his pop3 email accounts and then repoint Outlook at his old PST and Archive folders.

He now has two contact folders - one blank and one with all his contacts in.

We have set the default folder to the correct contacts list, however the user wants to remove the empty one to limit future confusion. The issue with doing is that both folders are named contacts.

Is there a way to rename one of these folders so that we can distinguish between the two and ultimately delete the empty one?

Right click on one of the folders and select properties. then change the name. Then go to your "accounts" and select the one to want to delete.

Then remove it.
