I've been using WLM ver. 9 for many years, but some functions, like the "undo" arrow, ceased working. So I just installed WLM 12. Strange thing happened to the Contacts; not all, but 98% of my contacts appear 3 times. I.e., there are 2 duplicates for every contact. When I open the Contacts folder, only one address exists there for each contact.

While I COULD simply delete the 2 duplicates throughout the list, I run a small business on this computer and have ~600 addresses in Contacts. . . which is now ~1800. . . and I would have to delete 1200 of them. Sitting here for an hour or more doing that is not appealing

Another unexplainable thing: If I go to create a new e-mail and click "To:" to look up the name, the list that appears HAS NO DUPLICATES. I only see the duplicates if I click Contacts at the bottom left of the main WLM page. So why do they show there, but not when you go to select someone to put into the "To:" box?
