In ActiveDEMAND, a list is just a view of contacts. Deleting a list will not delete the contacts. 




Bulk deleting contacts can only be done via the 'All Contacts (Contacts->All Contacts) screen. This can be done by bulk selecting the contacts you want to delete, either by building a temporary contact segment in the all contacts segment builder, or by selecting an existing contact segment or an existing contact list.


Go to All contacts (Contacts->All Contacts)

Click the 'All Contacts' drop down to select your list or segment. Once  the list or segment is selected and used to filter the all contacts table, click the checkbox on the top left column


Click the bulk edit button that appears on the toolbar


Select Delete Contact from the dropdown, and click Submit


This will fire up a background process that will delete your contacts. Note, depending on the amount of history associated with a contact, this may take several hours to complete. You will get a notification once the background task is complete.
