Delete Contacts from personal address book (fax from desktop)

Product Name: AltaLink B8145 / B8155 / B8170 Multifunction Printer
Operating System: Windows 10


When faxing from desktop, I cannot figure out how to delete a contact from the personal address book.

Even when editting a contact in the personal address book, it seems to actually create a whole new contact retaining the old information as a seperate contact.

I found this but it does not seem to give instructions as to how to delete a contact altogether:


Thanks in advance,

Re: Delete Contacts from personal address book (fax from desktop)

Hello gmclennan, 


I searched our online knowledge base and found the below article that should help you to delete contacts from the address book.  Towards the bottom of the article step 8 talks about removing a contact. 


Add or Edit Contacts or Recipient Groups in the Device Address Book


If you are still having issues after trying these steps, I suggest that you call into our support department for assistance @ 1-800-821-2797 or 1-800-835-6100
