WLM won't import contacts' name

    Good Lord! WLM takes the cake when it comes to importing something as simply
    as one's contacts :-( I don't rmember how Outlook Express imported contacts
    but I doubt it was this difficult and Thunderbird does a wonderful job at it.

    I hope the WLM team sees all these posts about importing contacts and they
    make it simple to do so once the final version of the client comes out.

    Anyone please let me know hw to import my contacts from Outlook Express or
    from Gmail w/out having to use the Windows Address Book? Everytime I try to
    import my contacts using the WAB, WLM won't import the names of my contacts,
    only their email address and for strange reason, it imports over 400 contacts.

    I'd like to import my contacts as a CSV file but don't see a way to do it in
    WLM.

    Thanks,

    Sterling

    RE: [Issue resolved] WLM won't import contacts' name

    Yay! I found a way to import my contacts' names.

    Since WLM won't import my contacts' names using WAB, I had tried importing
    my contacts using Live Hotmail (awful name, btw) but everytime I did it, WLM
    wouldn't display them. Well, I clicked on the Sync button on WLM and now my
    Hotmail contacts appear in WLM.

    Of course now I have to be signed in to Live Hotmail to use my contacts.

    BTW, a small correction: I meant to say that I didn't remmeber it wasn't
    this difficult to import contacts into Outlook Express.

    might have tried a Comma Separated Values text file as well.

    Yeah. That's how I originally tried to import my contacts (using a CSV file
    from Gmail) but didn't find the/an option in WLM to do so. I think the only
    options are WAB, a vBusiness something, an MS Outlook option and an option to
    import the current user's contacts.

    There isnlt one in WLM. Not much of any option in it. Been that way since
    early on. I gave up requesting it. Maybe get in the focus group they listen
    to, dunno. Whoever that group is don't know &%$ about e-mail or news
    readers.

    As it's looking right now, WLM might just be the reason why I either stay
    with Outlook Express, switch to Thunderbird (though I'm not that big a fan)
    or just stop using email clients.

    I want to use WLM. It's nice looking (I hope someone makes a WindowBlinds
    skin with the Graphite color) and it has some nice feather long missing but
    at the sametime it's not all that customizable and some feature that I liked
    in OE, like HTML edit, were taken out.

    And now this about no option for a CVS import?

    Bug them and maybe they'll add it. They won't listen to me, what do I know,
    I've only been supporting their mail software since Windows Mail and News.

    I find it hard to understand why they're ripped so much out of the previous
    software (Outlook Express) upon which it is based on.

    Ha! They won't listen to an MVP level contributor (you) but they'll listen to
    me? I wish. I could bug them til the cows come home and won't change anything.

    I think the only way that they'll listen to us is if we stop using their
    product (WLM) and hopefully when they come around, we won't be too used to
    using non-client based email to send messages.

    (I mean, I sent the Live Favorites people an email regarding how that site
    handles tabs but haven't heard from them (and doubt I will), so I switched to
    Google Bookmarks. Goodbye Live Favorites.)

    I hear what you're saying. I don't understand how something that was
    supposed to be an improvement (OE-to-WLM) is really more limited than what it
    was supposed to replace.

    Yep.

    Another thing that I hate about WLM is that if I embed an image into the
    message's body, it'll automatically resize the image. You can drag the images
    of the image to its original size but that's work that OE didn't required.

    I'd say aside from Windows Live OneCare (I'm a subscriber), all the products
    that Microsoft has slapped on the "Live" brand, I haven't liked one. WLM
    looks to be the next addition.

    it's "i" thing for Microsoft I guess. I'm waiting for Apple to come out
    with a vacuum cleaner. but then after all these years we've heard that for
    MS for they wouldn't want to use that branding. If you think hard enough,
    you'll understand that. :)

    I'll honest and say that I can't figure out what you meant :-( (LOL)

    And speaking of trying to figure out, I had was wondering what all these
    "Live" things were! Of course, "Live" is Microsoft's version of Apple's
    "i"-names. I still don't know what they mean with "Live," as a concept.

    Yeah. That's one thing I hate about MS products, they think they know what
    we want.

  13. I'm afraid MS listens more to focus groups made up of know-nothing
    newbies, rather than listening to seasoned professionals and MVPs.

    There's always been a particular word that has been used after one name and
    it's related to a vacuum.

    "Suck?" If it's not, then I bet the word is an easy one but for some strange
    reason I can't think of it.

    Yeah. That new stationary button (<sarcasm> Oh, how cool! </sarcasm>) reeks
    of newbie suggestion! Yep other buttons that more seasoned users might
    want/need were either removed or left out.

    Use Apple's current "i" themes then change Live to it and you'll see the
    point. It's something they both decided against using even though it's
    highly used already by non-marketing types.

    OMG. I can't believe I still don't get it. I'm not good at word puzzles.

    So, iPhoto would become Live Photo (or is that Photo Live)?
