    Hi i cannot add contacts in WLM as it says my contact list is full when i
    have only 110 contacts.

    The person can still talk to me but it will appear as
    "". I can see them on my contact list but they are
    permantely offline and i cannot send offline messeges to them. To talk to
    them they need to start a conversation with me first.

    Any sugguestions? i already tried deleting the stuff in contacts folder,
    C:Documents and settings/user/ etc. ...

  2. Greetings Sam,

    What is the exact message it's giving you? Certainly you can have more than 110 contacts.

    "We couldn't add because your contact list is full. Please
    remove someone from your contact list first." .

    I removed some contacts and i still it still says the same thing and i don't
    have more than 110 contacts. Could it be windows live email problem ? Because
    it says the my address book is full when i also try to add a new contact.

    When you delete contacts from your contact list, it does not really delete,
    what is the maximum number of contacts did you have on your messenger?

    i've been googling and it says limit of 1000 contacts . I only have 110
    contacts ... why is my contact list full ? This is very frustrating.

  13. Hi Sam,

    It looks like a server problem if everyone is seeing it.

    Well, i had the same problem since 10/03. Today, I stayed at whole morning
    looking for a solution, and, in my case it was some duplicated contacts.
    Remove them all and you'll able to add more contacts.

  20. Hi,

    I'm able to add contacts both to my existing account and a new one I just made. So it's not
    everyone, but obviously a number of people.
