Windows Live Contact Importer keeps "losing connection" and won'tfinish. Just trying to import Gmail

  1. I'm trying to import 180 gmail contacts into Windows Live Hotmail.

    I've tried download the file and using the "import contacts from gmail"
    feature in Hotmail. But this just bleats about "please use addresses in
    the format " or something. But I opened the file in excel,
    and they're all correct.

    No other type of format exchange seems to work.

    I also successfully imported the contacts into Outlook and then exported
    them and tried importing into Hotmail, but it told me that the format I
    used was not the correct type for that import!

    I select the contacts, but it keeps saying "the internet connection
    appears to have been lost".
    I've rebooted. I've had pings going and checked the router log to make
    sure it HASN'T been lost. I trying turning off firewall and virus
    software momentarily.

    But it just keeps on and on with this error - been trying for 2 days
    now, so I can be sure it's not a server problem.
