Specific Contact Lists Live Email


Before upgrading to windows 7, there are several functions i had that are now not functional:

1) contact lists - i used to have a "main" contact list, special contact lists i.e. , "Historical", "family" and i moved email ids into the special contact folders/lists and they were deleted/removed from the "main" list. Now, i can create the special folders, and can move email id's into the special lists, but the email id in the main contact list remains - now in two places, not one. If i delete the email id from any of the contact folder/lists, it's deleted from all of the contact lists. Surely, the techno twits (term of endearment) didn't screw up a great function of email contact folders/lists?

2) what's with the faded look of emails now? You don't have any old *** like me who find this hard to read/see? And, my husband is legally blind and even with his enhancer the fadeout on the emails is almost impossible to "see". What were you thinking? If you want to distinguish read from non-read, use a different color or anything else. Where's the option for me to get rid of this "seeing insensitive" faded/fadeout look that came with windows 7? Again, what were you thinking?

Rescuing Contact Information From .contact Files

Here is my problem - i successfully migrated all of my data onto a new windows 7 laptop - including all of my contacts which were beautifully arranged under the contacts folder within my user profile. I then, being careful, copied all of the files onto an external hard drive for in case my new laptop failed. (In fact two external hard drives being extra careful).

Unfortunately that is exactly what happened. I now have all of my contacts in a folder on the external hard drive - each of them is a person_name.contact file. Along with the windows 7 machine dying, i also lost (it failed) the original drive that had the csv exports of all contacts. So now i have .contact files but now windows 7 machine to copy them on to. (Only xp machines available - i never had vista).

Any suggestions how i can import the .contact files into something - ideally i'd like to end up with them in a csv file again because at least i can read that in emergencies!

Live Email

For the last month or so, i believe you did an update or change to live.com, it is very frustrating. It loads, reloads, reloads, clicks and clacks before i can get started addressing my emails or writing an email. The send to space will not take a name unless i mouse click it. When i open live.com email i have to wait while it loads and reloads about four times. Very frustrating. I loved it before, but can't have an email account that wastes my time as i use it for work. Is this only my problem or a problem with the new update?

Live Email Vs Outlook

I used to use outlook to get my mail, now windows 7 doesn't work with it. I did the steps to add my email account to their windows live email and set my password. With regular outlook, when i would click the icon, the small password box would first open and the email window would not appear until the password was entered. When i click on this live icon, the email window opens (the preview window pane) and then the small password window appears in the middle of it.

Granted, you can't actually click on the folders in the mail window without entering the password, but you can see the messages waiting in the preview pane! What's the use of needing a password if people can still kind of see some of your emails? How do you get it to work more like outlook, where the email window will not open at all until the password is entered? Plus, nothing from my email account has come over to this live account (i.e. My contacts or the messages in my folders, including any new messages). I thought it was supposed to transfer the email account when i went through the add an account steps?

Logging Onto Live Email

I am referred here by the windows live help forum. "After reviewing your concern i have determined that you need to get in touch with the support group of your windows operating system. I suggest that you contact the technical support group of windows 7. They are the appropriate team to address your inquiry. "  The problem is stated below.

I recently installed windows 7 on two of my three computers. When attempting to log into my windows live email account on one of the computers it does not recognize my password. My id and password are recognized when i log in on my other two computers, one with windows 7 and the other with xp and also when i log in from my work site. I am able to access normal internet through explorer 8 without any difficulty.

In my attempts to solve the problem one of the messages i have come across is "default mail client is not properly installed"  the solution offered does not seem to fit the windows 7 format. It tells me to go to tools-internet options-programs and change a setting that does not exist on windows 7.

Cannot Send Email With Live Mail

I have a dell 1735 laptop with a windows 7 premium os. Windows live mail is my email client. After i open wlm i receive email to my inbox without a problem, but when i click on new mail message the message window opens for about 3 seconds and then fades with a pop-up appearing that reads " a problem has caused windows live mail to stop working. "I went to the add/remove programs and clicked repair, that didn't help. I uninstalled and re-installed the application, that did not help.

Note: i uninstalled with regedit i know the settings are correct because i use the same settings in my windows xp outlook express, on my desktop. I also went to msconfig and switched to a diagnostic start-up, that didn't help. One thing i noticed is everytime i close wlm a dialog box asks me if i want to recover more disk space, i usually click yes. I have 138 gigs of free space on 320 gig drive. Lso, outlook 2002 is installed on the laptop, but it is not the default email client. Does anyone have any idea as to what can be the problem?

Cannot Email Photos In Live Mail

I've just had a new pc with windows 7 and windows live mail, and am still getting used to it, so very sorry if i am just being plain thick! I can send and receive regular emails fine, unless i add an photo - then, they are sent but not received. I have a couple of email addresses and have been trying all day to send myself a photo from one to the other, but the only way it worked was by
Sending it from my hotmail address online (not from windows live mail).

Do you have any ideas what i'm doing wrong? I am using the 'add photos' button then selecting a photo from my pictures, clicking 'add' and 'done' and everything seems to work ok, but non of the emails have arrived back.

Sending Pics Via Email Live

I have had my computer since feb. It is a gateway, 8gb, 1tb and was working very nicely up until about a month ago when i started having problems sending pics via e-mail/through windows live. I pull up the pic to send and the windows live box comes up but when i go to send a little box comes up, telling me that there are initializing errors with my hotmail acct inbox, outbox, etc. With a red circle by each remark. It also gives me an error id ox80070057 and suggested i go to support live.com to find out what that meant. I did and it said something was stuck in my outbox.

Well, i deleted all but 28 e-mails deleted every pic off my live profile, deleted all cookies and temp files, deleted some pictures, deleted programs that w don't use and/or don't need- oh. This
Is also because in the windows live mailbox that comes up to send the pics, behind the other box i get a message saying check your computer for low disk space and or low memory.

I don't have anything on my computer other than my pics, a few(4)) documents(small) & music. I'm wondering what is causing this and how can i fix it? Could it be all the songs my boyfriend has downloaded? I think it might be. He did delete 2 play-lists, but i just looked and there are like 30 hours worth of music on here and almost 430 songs that i can find. I told him i think those songs are causing the problem, but i could b wrong.

Set Email Address In Live

How do i set an email address in windows live? Every time i go to windows live forum and do a post it channels me into select windows -> win 7 etc etc.

I don't really understand how i get to ask a question about windows live. I set up windows live with an id that was like an email address . @Me.com, but wasn't really one, just an id i fancied, cos the software didn't ask for an email address. Now every where i go to do with windows live (eg this forum) it says ill get informed of things. How will it inform me if it doesn't have my email address, doesn't it know i didn't give it an email address?

I ve looked all around my profile and what ever other items i can go to under windows live when im logged in and i cant find anywhere it allows me to provide an email addr'. I am really confused about all these windows live items. I cant find a no advertising style page that just explains very simply what it actually is!

Start Live Mail Without Importing Any Email

How to start windows live mail without importing any email? I have just downloaded windows live mail for the purposes of creating some screenshots for a service i am providing. I just want to run the program, without importing any of my old email out of outlook (which takes up many gb's), however windows live mail seems to insist on importing all of my old mail when i start it.

As my old mail folders are so large, windows live mail basically just freezes, and there is nothing i can do except close it using the task manager. Is there some way to start windows live mail without it insisting on importing old email?By the way, i really think windows should come with the old windows mail, which just is a far superior email product to windows live mail in my opinion.

Access Denied Contact Your Administrator

Okay so here's the deal: my boss just bought brand new computers for our office which all have windows 7. Now all are files are located on a servers which runs on windows xp. If we go directly into the server through our computers we have no problem accessing the file, but if we try to open say a word document through ms word, we sometimes get the "access denied.contact you administrator" message. Now i have no problem going through the server each time, but my boss prefers to open up his word documents through word. I tried going onto the server and changing the folder options so that everything is shared but it didn't work. Is there any way i can fix this problem?

How Do Delete Email Account From Win Live Mail In Win 7 ?

I have windows 7 on my laptop and found out it could help me organize my hotmail account - but when i opened windows live mail, it suddenly had our family email account on it and began downloading email. I only want our family email account to appear and work on our desktop (which has xp and outlook express). If i delete that pop account from windows live mail, will it only apply to the settings on my laptop and therefore remain intact on our desktop?

Specific Drive Recovery Supported Or Not?

Let the case be:-1. I have a 240 gb hdd. I partition it into three drives of 80, 80, 80 gb each. 2. The drive names are c, d and e. I am using e: drive for recovery drive. 3. Now i create recovery of only c: drive in e: drive. Now is it possible that whatever changes i do to the d: drive, they are not undone when i recover my system. i.e. If i have copied some stuff in d: drive after creation of recovery for c: drive and hadn't created recovery for d: drive, then on restoration of my c: drive will the data on d: drive be safe or will the stuff in it will also get changed?

Is Anytime Upgrade Key Language Specific?

I'm planning to upgrade from windows 7 home premium to ultimate using windows anytime upgrade.

The installation of home premium is a czech version that came preinstalled with a notebook as an oem license. Unfortunately, the online purchase doesn't work due to the limitations of the online store, so my only option is to purchase the anytime upgrade license outside of windows and then enter the purcahsed key to perform the upgrade.

I'm currently on an extended business trip in asia, so i can not purchase the wau from a czech store where i originally bought the notebook. My best option is to purchase the upgrade kit via an online store like amazon.

I haven't been able to find out whether or not the upgrade kits differ based on territory or language, so i would like to make sure that i won't purchase something that won't work. Can anyone confirm that the windows anytime upgrade key purchased in an english-speaking country work on a non-english version of windows?

Contacts Lists

I'm looking for some way to have the same functionality with windows contacts as i did previously with windows address book. In a windows xp environment, windows address book entries were used by microsoft works calendar and outlook express. In a windows vista environment, the windows address book entries were used by microsoft works calendar and windows mail.

Now, with windows 7, the windows address book has been replaced with windows contacts; and, the windows contacts are not the same as the windows live mail contacts. With windows 7, my understanding is that two address books have replaced one. And, these two address books don't communicate with each other. Plus, a birthday entered in windows live mail contacts cannot be used to update the microsoft works calendar. Or, an entry in either address book is not seen in the other.

Is there some way to merge these address books? Is it possible to revert back to windows mail while using the same address book as is used by microsoft works calendar? Is there a single address book that can be used by both microsoft works calendar and windows live mail?

Jump Lists Not Working

I have been using windows 7 for quite a while now without problems. I have pinned word, excel and other programs to my task bar. I have been able to pin documents to these programs as well. When i right click it pops up the pinned and most recent. Yesterday, excel decided that it would not do this anymore. I cannot pin anything to the program in the task bar and it does not show history. My word program works fine as well as the other programs i have pinned to the task bar. How do i fix this? It is quite annoying as it takes a few minutes to open excel files by going through "my computer. ".

Jump Lists Problem

Pinned items on internet explorer and windows media player jump list for at least the past month or so, i have been unable to pin any links to the internet explorer 8 jump list nor the windows media player 12 jump list. Additionally, on the windows media player jump list, the frequent items list has stopped showing. I do not recall exactly when they stopped working, possibly after i installed windows live essentials wave 4 beta. The jump lists for any other programs are functioning properly. My computer is a sony vaio running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. And let me know if any additional details are required from me to fix the problem.
