Cannot move certain contacts from one folder to another in Outlook
Posted on 2013-05-26
In Outlook (2010), what would prevent me from being able to move certain contacts from one contact folder to another?
I created 3-4 temporary folders to use while going through my contact list and doing some sorting. However, I am now unable to move some of the contacts back to their original folder.
For example, one temporary folder contained about 145 contacts. I selected all of its contents and dragged them to the main contact folder. However, after doing so, 23 contacts still remain in the temporary folder and I cannot find any way to move them.
I tried dragging one at a time, I tried right-clicking followed by selecting Move, I also tried copying to paste (but that is not given as an option) and I've made sure there is not already a duplicate file. Nothing pops up such as an error message but it just does nothing at all.
Any ideas regarding what the problem might be?
