can't you just resync it with the correct address book and let Outlook be the winner on conflicts?

Try synchronizing via the desktop client with Intellisync set so that the desktop overwrites the handheld and make your source be an empty address-book. For example, if your source for the address book sync is an ASCII text file with either nothing or a single empty entry in it.

I haven't tried it myself so I won't garuntee success ... But it should work out for you. If it does, post a reply and let me know.

If you have Desktop Manager installed, you can open up Backup, choose Advanced, and clear the address book from the handheld that way. Not sure if that's what wou were asking.
