    how to import people from Outlook.com to windows 10


    Problem:
    · Had to restore computer to factory settings...lost everything. Found people at Outlook.com. Reinstalled Windows 10. Somehow that listing showed up in my computer's Windows 10 "people" app. But when start to list address nothing comes up automatically like before even thought the name I'm typing is in the People listing. Tried finding something like "Auto enter addresses" in settings, but see nothing. Any suggestions? I'd like to use my hundreds of people listed without having to look up and physically enter each one when I want to use it.

    Suggested Solution:
    Open the "People" app and in the bottom left corner, click the gear icon
    Note the account name it is associated with
    Open the "Mail" app and confirm that under "Accounts" it is using the same




    Resolution attempt:
    Opened people app, clicked on settings gear... two accounts listed Gmail & Cox (my isp), but not Outlook, which is one of the 3 mail accounts that are linked in my Windows 10 mail account. Tried to add an outlook account to people app using my email address and outlook password and tells me "account already exists". Still have to manually input any addresses. thoughts? Would "link profiles" or "share contact" options on individual listings help? thx

    :)

  2. how to tranfer contact from outlook to nokia lumia 520

    Hi Mayank Gautam



    Thank you for posting to the forum.



    Like Garym123's question marks, there is a difference between Outlook and Outlook.com.



    Outlook.com contacts sync automatically in case you are using the same account on Outlook.com and on your phone.



    If you are using Outlook on a pc, please go to

    to see how to sync contacts from different Outlook versions.

    How to define contact groups for Windows 10 email client

    Bought a new computer with Windows 10. Imported contacts from a .csv file into Outlook.com. Contacts are available to email in Outlook.com and to the email client in Windows 10. Need to define contact groups. Tried adding a new “Contact” containing all addresses
    of the group members. Winows 10 email did not recognize the new “Contact” (though the "Contact" showed in the People App), Outlook.com email used only the address of the first group member. How do I get groups into Windows 10 that are recognized and usable
    by the Windows 10 email client?

    how to import people from Outlook.com to windows 10

    I find the problem most likely is the difference between Outlook [installed E-Mail Client part of Office] and Outlook.com, the online/Webmail replacement for Hotmail.com. The People I have in Hotmail/Outlook.com don't show up in the Contacts under Users on Win10.

    Thx. If I understand correctly, Outlook.com/Hotmail has my original people list, but not the Windows 10 people list. Is there any way you know of to duplicate that list on my Windows 10 computer mail app without physically having to enter each name and email? Thx

    In Outlook.com on the Your People click Manage and you can Export as a spreadsheet .csv file which most installed E-Mail Clients can use to Import to their address book/Contacts. It mentions Microsoft Excel but most spreadsheet programs recognize the format. Can even use Contacts in C:\Users itself to Import.

    Very helpful, but still not completely there. Exported people as .csv file...arrow went to downloads...opened, clicked and dragged to C:/users/philallen/contacts and it showed up as an excel spreadsheet. Now can't find it.
    How do I get it from there to windows 10 mail so I don't have to physically look up and type in every address I want to send something to? As before, can see all contacts in Peoplel app, but Windows 10 mail doesn't seem to connect to or recognize them.
