Different ways to import contacts
The main technique to import contacts from Windows Mail is to use the import functionality that is provided along with the file menu. The user can import the contacts that are present in the Windows Mail application by specifying the location where the contacts should be imported and the file type too needs to be provided. First, the user should activate the export option in Windows Mail and then they need to perform the import action in the new program or some other option.
One of the issues that would affect the user while they are importing contacts from the Windows Mail application program is the file format issue. The file type selected to store the contacts would be incompatible with the new software or the system and thus the contacts cannot be read. As a result, the import action is also not performed. The import action from the corrupted Windows Mail software also results in failure. The contacts should be specifically mentioned when the import wizard starts. Else the process would result in failure due to the improper steps followed by the user for importing the contacts.
Some careful precautions need to be taken while importing contacts from Windows Mail. They would help resolve the issues that arise. The Windows Mail software should be error-free and the contacts should be present in the software without any corruption. The import wizard should be followed carefully according to the instructions displayed on the screen. The file type selection should be mentioned carefully and a copy of the contacts exported from Windows Mail should also be kept safely so that it could be used in future.
