I accidentally deleted my Windows Live Mail contact list while coping and transferring it to another PC. That works fine.

I keep my contact list backed up in .VCF format and have Imported from my backup before.

But now, when I try to Import the (entire) contact list at once, (as I've done before), it imports VERY slowly, and after each contact slowly comes into the list,



I get a message " you already have this contact, do you want to over-write it?" (There are ZERO contacts there now??)



It would take days to import my contact list at this pace.



I have Win7 Pro, 64 bit.



Any ideas as to what is causing this?



Thanks in advance........................

Your Live Mail contacts list along with emails are stored on Microsoft Servers.

When you install Live Mail onto a fresh OS installation and set up the Live email account(s), all is downloaded and populates the the new Live mail installation.

jcgriff2,
Thanks for your reply.
How can I Import my Live Mail Contacts?

Or, can I Import ALL (200+) contacts at once? How?

I have Imported ALL of them before from backup VCF format contacts on my hard drive, but that doesn't seem to work as before.
