  1. Issues with Contacts from Outlook in Windows 10 Mail


    I have 3 questions regarding issues I'm having with Windows 10 Mail.


    (1) When typing a particular contact's name (same for several actually) within an email, two or more options pop-up. One of them is correct and the other options are totally wrong - i.e. not any contacts of mine. I have no idea where these are coming from. Not being able to locate the weird email addresses, I deleted all contacts in Yahoo and all contacts in Outlook (I have all my contacts in Thunderbird as well). I then checked in Mail and again, same thing happened. Not sure how anything showed up when all contacts in both Yahoo and Outlook had been deleted. Anyway, I proceeded to (2) below.

    (2) I'm now trying to import email contacts from Thunderbird into Outlook and thereby be available in Windows 10 Mail. However all the email addresses were not filled into the proper field - i.e. the email address field. Instead they were filled into the "Contact Imported" field. I exported the file in .csv format from Thunderbird. Can this be rectified without manually having to copy/paste all email addresses into the correct field?

    (3) In order to work, it seems that any new contact has to be added online to either Outlook or Yahoo and not directly to Windows 10 Mail, is that correct?


    Thank you for your time.

    :)

    Deleting contacts from Windows 10


    When you say Windows Mail Live are you referring to Mail app or Windows Live Mail?

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


    • Open Windows Live Mail.
    • Press Ctrl + 3 using your keyboard. Right-click on the contact to delete it if it is a single contact.
    • Highlight all contacts by pressing Ctrl + A.
    • Click Delete located on the Ribbon bar.
    • Click OK when you see the message These contacts will also be deleted from Hotmail, Messenger, and other Windows Live services.

    After following the steps above, all your contacts that you have manually added to your account will be deleted however, contacts coming from third-party sites such as Facebook will not be deleted unless you remove Facebook from your account.

    For Mail app:

    Open People app then delete the contact.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    Configuring additional Contacts accounts in Outlook 2016 on Windows 10 Pro

    In Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 Pro, I can add a Contacts Folder?/Address Book? by undertaking the following steps:

    1. Go to Start->Control Panel->Mail(32-bit)
    2. Select 'Show Profiles...' and double-click the correct profile for my system
    3. Select 'E-mail Accounts...'
    4. Under the 'E-mail' tab, select 'New...'
    5. Make sure that 'E-mail Account' is selected and hit 'Next >'
    6. Fill in the name, email address, and password for the given account and hit 'Next >'.

    Unfortunately, I have no idea how to configure the same profile in Outlook 2016 on Windows 10 Pro.

    Any thoughts?
