How can I remove all facebook contacts in my contacts from windows live mail?

All Facebook contacts are listed in my Windows Live email account, I don't want to or we need them. If I want to communicate with them, I'll do so via Facebook.

My email has been hacked so I want contacts as little as possible! I won't be able to post my photos to Windows live Photo so I don't want to remove the connection between FB and Windows all together! But when I try to remove a Messenger contact, if it's a FB contact, he does not have the delete option! Help!

  • replacement computers. How can I keep all of my old emails. old computer windows live mail 2011 new computer windows live mail 2012

    replacement computers. How can I keep all of my old emails. I have hundreds of emails in the sent folder and hundreds in my folder of emails saved on my old computer (windows live mail 2011) but when I open windows live mail 2012 on my new computer all the folders are empty. I signed the same account on both computers.

    old computer windows live mail 2011 new computer windows live mail 2012 it is the problem


    It is relatively simple as you use and that you want to use WLM.

    You will need to copy a folder from where it is (the old installation) to another place where you know it will be (for example on your desktop)

    The folder is c:\users\your user name\app data (if it is not there, see the note below) \local\microsoft\

    At that point you will see a folder named oddly enough "windows live mail" copy on your desktop

    If you don't see the app data because it is invisible atm.  To make it visible, you need to go to your control panel > folder options > view > change to hidden folders (see figure)

    Once you have mail backed up on your desktop (or where ever) drag the folder from the desktop to the location for the new WLM (once again we C;-... just like above).  Just make sure that WLM does not run in time.  What wont be imported, it of passwords and rules.

    Accounts and data should now be in the new WLM when you open it.

  • How to export my contacts from Windows Live Mail on XP

    I searched for this answer for the last 2 hours.  All the answers are for Vista & Windows 7.   How to export my Windows Live Mail addresses so that I can use in Thunderbird?  I'm moving to Thunderbird because quick view is off & on display unread messages.  They watch for a few days, then stop broadcasting.  Then repeat for a few days, then stop again.  This is happening for more than a month because there was an update of the first part of the last month.
    But back to my original question.  How to export my contacts from Windows Live Mail.  When I click on the file to export and then export, there is nothing highlighted.   So, how can I get my contacts?  Or is there another way to do otherwise than through WLM >

    Thank you

    This is happening for more than a month because there was an update of the first part of the last month.

    There has been no update for WLMail 2009 since April 2010. Update do you think has affected your quick view?

    How to export my contacts from Windows Live Mail.

    Open the contacts window by clicking the address book at the foot of the folders pane. On the file menu, click export , and then select comma separated (CSV) values. If you don't see the menu bar, press ALT.

    Note that the last statement on the help page (Export contacts) is wrong: by dragging the window contacts contacts on the desktop doesn't create any kind of file. In version 12 and 15, this produces a vCard (.vcf) file for each contact, but not in the version 14 (WLMail) 2009.

    Windows Live Mail has its own support at the Windows Live Solution Centerforums. Please address any other question you may have on one of the forums on the right side of this page. You are probably asked to give your version of WLMail and Windows so that the answer may be more accurate. In WLMail to find your version of the software, a press on ALT - H. If it doesn't show you the version and the build number, press on escape to two times, and then Alt - F B.

    The only way to do is to setup Windows user accounts for each user.  Other users cannot see what another user sees.
