    Win10 Mail - where's the address book?


    Starting our on Win 10.
    Problems ongoing with Thunderbird after many years of good use so trying out the Mail which comes with Win10.
    First thing is to address mail but I can't see any contacts/address bk/or other list of contacts.
    Is this intentional? are contacts stores somewhere at MS?

    thanks for taking the time to respond.

    :)

  2. How do I change the "From" Address in the Windows 10 Mail app?

    Hey guys,

    So I just recently decided to join the Win10 wagon and have finally finished setting up and synchronizing my accounts. Was also wondering where the drop-down button for account/aliases went...but after going through this thread, I suppose this issue with
    the Win10 Mail app has yet to be resolved?

    I have a Gmail work account and an Outlook personal account, all managed through my Outlook account using the Win10 Mail app. Since Win8, I have set my work address as the primary From address (seeing as email traffic is heavier there) and had no trouble
    switching around, but this time with the Win10 Mail app I was unable to locate that drop-down button and I find this to be unnecessarily frustrating as I am therefore required to go and open my account via
    browser just so I could switch From addresses. This problem is also ever present within the Win10 Phone Mail app,
    sigh.

    Any idea on whether or not Microsoft is doing anything about this? Or is the Win10 Mail app meant to be mega basic as opposed to the Ms Outlook 2016 program? I mean, the Win10 Mail app goes as far as allowing you to play around with text format and everything
    (except for formatting your signature, which...c'mon now?), so I suppose Microsoft should also give us that drop-down button back...

    Win10 Mail - where's the address book?

    That’s now the People app. *Smile
    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.

  5. Have a look in the people app? Think it links to this so anything stored in People will be shown when typing the name in the mail app?
