    mail app doesn't access contacts


    Hi all,

    can someone tell me how to get the new win10 mail app to access my contacts or how to add
    an address book to the email client. I'm get mail through a pop3 optus server not gmail etc.
    If I begin typing a name or email address in a new email the only adresses/ names that are there [autofill] are
    ones who I have recieved mail from, my contacts aren't there. [added csv file to contacts I exported from live mail before upgrading from win8.1] where are the contacts from recieved emails stored?, can I add my contacts there?
    I notice that recieved email contacts aren't stored in my contacts app contacts folder. I would like to just use the win10 mail app than install something else. Thanks for any help, Regards Chris
