    I can not delete an unwanted contact.


    Two questions in one:
    After the one month of using Windows 10, will the old Windows folder be deleted along with Windows live mail?
    If so, is there a way to preserve WLM, I really prefer to keep using this program.

    I do not know how this contact got into my address book, but I can not delete it.
    It is the echo sound service from skype.
    All other contacts can be deleted with a right click and delete, but not this one.
    I suppose it got added by installing skype.

  3. Windows 10 Mail App Suggested Contacts

    I had the same problem in getting rid of unwanted suggested contacts using Gmail account. To solve this, I logged into Gmail account and deleted all unwanted contacts, including the "Other Contacts” group. After that, I came back
    and deleted Gmail account in the Window 10 mail. After including Gmail account again, the unwanted contacts were finally gone!

    I agree with all replies that said why such simple problems had to be so hard to solve!
