    I've just upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista. I backed up my Windows Mail
    Contacts folder to another hard drive, but didn't export them. Now I find
    that I can't open a distribution group (".group" in my old contacts) or
    import any contactsinto Windows Live Mail. The contact format is "Joe". I don't want to have to manually recreate my groups in Live
    Mail if I can avoid it. Thanks, Les

  2. How are you attempting to import those Windows Mail contacts?
    From within Windows Live Mail: open Contacts, press Alt to get the
    File menu, File, Import, "Address book for current Windows user".
    If it can't find the WM contacts, copy them to C:\Users\username\Contacts.
