I'm not certain, but I think that Contacts synchronization does not
necessarily occur with every Mail sync, and it sometimes takes more than one
session to get everything fully in sync. It should happen, though, each time
you sign in to Windows Live. If you enable logging (Options > Advanced >
Maintenance > Troubleshooting), you can see what is going on between you and
the server. It's not just your contacts that are shared - safe and blocked
senders are synchronized as well.

perfectly functional newsreader in front of you?
