    People - How do you import contacts into People for Windows 10?

    I successfully moved contacts yesterday from Windows Live Mail (WLM) 2012 on a Windows 7 PC, into the
    People app on a Windows 10 PC -- but there are a few hurdles.

    When the People app refers to "Import contacts", it really means "add account" so that you can "import" contacts from sources like Outlook, Exchange, Gmail and iCloud. So the first step is to get your contacts INTO one of those services (since mine were
    just in Windows Live Mail locally), and I chose to use Outlook.com as the service.

    First, I opened Windows Live Mail, clicked the Contacts folder, and then the
    Export button in the Ribbon. I chose Comma separated values (.CSV) as the format. In the subsequent field export list, I clicked to include most of the unchecked ones (First Name, Last Name, Middle Name, Nickname, and others). There's no harm
    to adding all the fields you might find useful.

    The People app included in Windows 10 has no Import feature, but the
    Outlook Web App "Outlook People" does. But even the OWA app has no feature to let you perform "field-mapping" of an import file. The best I could do was to log into Outlook.com - Microsoft free personal email and manually add a contact, then from the "Manage"
    menu in Outlook People choose "Export contacts" as a Microsoft Outlook CSV. Opening this contacts.csv file in a text editor let me compare the
    first line -- the "header row" -- to the header row of the .CSV I had already exported from Windows Live Mail. The Outlook People app has many more fields, but they match the exact names of the WLM .CSV just fine, with one exception: you
    need to add a hyphen to the WLM .CSV file's "Email address" header name, so that it says "E-mail address" instead. Don't worry that the order of the fields in the two header rows are different; the import will match
    fields that have the same exact name, no matter the order.

    After fixing "E-mail address", I could now go back to the OWA Outlook People,
    Manage --> Import contacts
    , and choose "Windows Live Mail". It worked.

    Final step: in Windows 10 I needed to add the Microsoft account to the People app there. Once done, then all of the contacts just imported into OWA Outlook People now synchronize and populate the desktop app as well.

    Far from easy, but doable.

    Contact not syncing properly on WP8 Lumia520 (Phone numbers are not added)

    Something in the export and import csv files had some of the contact info in the wrong spreadsheeet headers. You can export the contact list in outlook.com to see what is going on and edit it with the correct information. I had to merge three contact lists
    and I did it with csv files and Excel. Any decent spreadsheed program will work to edit the file.

    Export your contact list in outlook, manage, export. It is a csv file.



    The correct column header names have to be ' business phone ' ' home phone ' ' mobile phone ' ' e-mail address ' Other header names will not give the correct information when imported back in.

    You will have to remove all contacts in outlook and import the corrected csv file back in.
