  2. Contacts from Mail in Vista to Mail in Windows 10

    Hi Matti,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are facing issues with importing the contacts in mail app on Windows 10. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    I would suggest you to try to perform the below steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: First try to export the contacts in csv file as instructed in below Microsoft Help Article.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/import-export-change-format-contacts#1TC=windows-vista

    Step 2: Then I suggest you to login to outlook.com website and try to extract the contact through it.

    Step 3: After that, you need to configure mail app as IMAP account to receive the contacts.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance on Windows related issues and we will be glad to help.

  3. Contacts from Mail in Vista to Mail in Windows 10

    I exported the contacts as a csv file, but in importing to outlook.com, I received an answer:

    "The file is empty or not in the correct format. Please choose different file."

    It seems to me that I have to type all contacts that I need to People.

    Thanks for trying.

    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?
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-CA/w...backup-restore

    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.
    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...-contacts.html
    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 *Tongueeople: to the mail content as in W7.
