  1. Correcting an entry in Windows 10 Mail Address Book


    I have a very strange issue with the Windows 10 Mail Address Book (People). I made an error in an entry (reversed two numbers). I selected Edit and corrected the entry. Then when I entered the first letter in a new email, BOTH addresses appeared and I had to choose the correct one. So I deleted the person's name entirely--and even rebooted. Now...when I enter the initial, both names and addresses still appear!
    Is this just a glitch in the Windows 10 Mail program? Or is there some way to make only the correct address pop up?
    (Is it possibly relevant that I have never initiated the People app outside of the Mail program?)

    :)

    Win10 Mail - where's the address book?


    That’s now the People app. Correcting an entry in Windows 10 Mail Address Book :)
    If you know the contact's name or email address & they’re listed in the People app, you can start typing the first few letters of their name or email address and Mail for Windows 10 will suggest matching contacts.

  3. Address Book for Windows 10 mail app

    suggest you learn about your products before answering these questions, try reading my answer to this question, the address book for the new Mail client is hidden in system files, the old contact list that we all would like to use cannot be used by the new
    Mail app, it only picks up email addresses that we either have already replied to or send to manually, so to add to the address book all of my previously used contacts I need to manualy imput their address in to TO box & send them an email then that address
    will store, there is no import address book contacts for this app or even an link to the address book, so it is rubbish, suggest you pass this on to someone higher up, & respond to me when you have built in an Import/export & accessible address book, until
    then I will use a decent & simple email client like Thunderbird.

    Address Book for Windows 10 mail app

    The address book for the win 10 app is hidden in the system files & only collects the address when you either reply to an email or manually type in an email address, it is not able to be accessed to remove or add to, there is no import or export, so its
    totally useless, the most ridiculas thing is that all your previous contacts are sitting in the contacts folder & list stored in windows that if the idiots had built this new win 10 properly the app could of simply tapped into like other email clients that
    have a simple import/Export for the address book, again Microsoft you have made it harder not easier, I suggest that anyone wanting a simple email client to use Mozzilla Thunderbird & simply import the address book from the windows contact list, something
    their stupid app should of done from the start.

    Strangley Microsoft have not given this info as an answer to any of your questions as to were the address book is on Mail, I dug deep to find this as a * at the bottom of a list???

    Shame on you Microsoft, have the decency to tell the truth when some one asks something not give a load of bs,

    simple answer to were is Mail Address book, is, it is hidden in system & cannot be accessed/added to or deleted by an ordinary person in any simple way.????
