    Contacts in Windows 10 mail In


    In Windows 7 I had a long list of contacts in Windows Mail but when I opened Windows Live Mail in Windows 10 there is no contacts list or draft folders.Is there any way I can add these to my mail account?.

    Have you got the 'People' app? They may be in there?

    I think I have given you this link on one of your other threads. But then again, my memory is not that great.

    How do I import and export email, contacts, and calendars with Windows Live Mail?

    The one below is a little "old". It was posted for Win 7 in 2011. However, it is still dealing with WLM and the steps and terminologies are basically the same.

    If I remember correctly, you do have a computer currently running Win 7.
    If yes, the tutorial will work for you.

    Option One is to export Contacts from WLM in Windows 7.
    Option Two is to import Contacts to WLM in Windows 10.

    *** make sure you export Contacts as a Comma separated values (.csv) File ***

    Bang on the nose,but why are they tucked away there and not amongst the mail contents.Another fine example of W10 obfuscating and trying to be too clever.Is there anyway I can move this list from eople: to the mail content as in W7.
