    I recently realized that WLM has a completely different copy of address book
    entries than windows address book. Is there a way to merge them? \

    Outlook Express used to use the default windows address book, which was
    sort-of the 'universal' place to store contacts. Now every application wants
    to keep its own copy.

    See
    http://windowslivewire.spaces.live.com/Blog/cns!2F7EB29B42641D59!32921.entry
    for a horse's-mouth description of new address book features. You
    can import your WAB contacts using File > Import in the Contacts
    window - in an ordinary installation, this should happen
    automatically. You should note that contacts are now associated with
    the Live ID you use to sign in to WLMail. If you don't sign in, you
    will have access to a Default set of contacts which are used only by
    WLMail. Read up in Help about signing in to see what the benefits
    are.
