    Can't delete/edit Outlook contact folder because it is read only


    I've used Windows Live mail as my primary email, but I understand that it's not going to be supported after December 2016, so I opened Outlook and tried to set it up, but the I'm having a hard time importing my contacts from Windows Live mail. I exported the contacts from Windows Live mail to a folder on the desktop, but when I try to import it into Outlook, I got the following error: Error in syncing [800CCCD2-0-0-322]



    And I also found that the Contact folder in Outlook is read only, so I can't Delete any of the contacts.

    Most important to me is how can I change the read only attribute in the contact folder? I would also like to import my contacts from Windows Live Mail to Outlook, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong in importing contacts to Outlook.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Mary

    :)

    Hello, thank you but I already read this article and identifie the problematic folder: my "contact" folder has a CLRF and I need to rename or to delete it, my problem is I am not allowed to rename or to delete it because it is a "built-in" folder in outlook.

    My biggest problem is that my contact folder is read only. How can I change the attributes for this folder?

    Did you follow the information in the link I posted? Instead of asking how to change a folder that is owned by the System, go through the instructions in the link.
