    Hi Forum,

    Like many of you I just got Lion, looks good.. But I accidentally created a contact group in the new Address book and I don't know how to delete it.. Backspace doesn't work - nor does it work in combinations with any modifier keys - and 'edit - delete' is greyed out.. Does anyone know?

    Go to group view, click (highlight) the group name, then go to the menu Edit > Delete Group

    Deleting still not an option

    Doesn't work for me; clicked on the group name, Delete Group is grayed out. If it matters, the group was created by adding an Exchange server in Mail, but that Mail account was deleted. The Address Groups seem orphans that can't be gotten rid of.

    In Address Book, look at Preferences -> Accounts. If that Exchange server is there, delete it from there as well.
