One among the most important step to be taken is to import contacts in Windows Live Mail. This means copying contacts from other programs to Windows Live Mail. This is needed as you can start e-mailing with the new program without adding contacts again into the address book.
Here are some notes on method to import address book in Windows Live Mail:
- Choose a contact import format
- Start importing
- Importing file formats
Choose a contact import format
The first step in importing contact in Windows Live Mail is to choose contact import format. To do this, you need to get into Windows Live Mail Contacts. Then, you need to select Show Menu button and select Import option. It will display a submenu. The submenu will list out all formats which Windows Live Mail can import. The format of the contact depends on the file or e-mail program whose contacts you like to import. It is good to select CSV format for this purpose.
If you are using e-mail programs like Microsoft Outlook and importing its contacts to Windows Live Mail, then you can get the importing process done automatically. You need to just select the option to import. You can now see Windows Live Mail importing contacts of its own. You will be notified only if the importing process gets some interruptions.
You may be trying to import contacts from a file like WAB, CSV or VCF. To do this, you need to pick the file. If you are using CSV files, then you need to ensure that the contacts’ mapping corresponds to the version that you are using. This is done by default in Windows Live Mail. It is also possible to change the mapping in Windows Live Mail if you wish to do so. To do this, you need to just ensure that each contact information column is corresponding to the expected data itself.
