    Doesn't Edit/Copy or right-click drag-and-drop work?

    When I drag a contact from WLM into the Hotmail Contacts folder in Outlook,
    it opens up a new contact and puts the email address to the Notes

    I thought you were using the Outlook Connector and could see your Hotmail
    (Windows Live) contacts on a contacts folder in Outlook. Is this not the
    case?

    Perhaps I was vauge;

    In the Contacts folder of Outlook, I can see the contacts of the WLM in the
    Outlook Folder; however when adding info the contact, it will be lost since
    it will sync with WLM when I login to WLM;

    Intend to edit the contacts of WLM in Outlook and then add them to WLM

    I'm confused again. You say "in the Contacts folder" and then "in the
    Outlook folder". Is one a subfolder of the other? Can you be more precise
    in your description?

    If you open a contact record from whatever folder they're in, do you see a
    contact form?

    The details of the hotmail contacts are in a different folder under the main
    Contacts folder of Outlook;

    The contacts of the hotmail contacts are listed as;
    Contacts in name@xxxxxx

    When I right click the contact in WLM, I can select Edit Contact and there
    are a number of fields;
    How do I sync the details with Outlook?

    Do I fill in the data in WLM or Outlook and the details will be updated?

    You keep talking about WLM (Windows Live Mail? Messenger?). What does this
    have to do with Outlook?

    If you use the Outlook Connector to view your WIndows Live Hotmail account,
    the contacts there will not be "under the main Contacts folder of Outlook".
    They'll be in a separate folder tree whose root is at the same level as the
    root of your default folders. You should be able to open each Contacts
    folder and drag items from one to the other. Everything is done from within
    Outlook and "WLM", whatever that is, isn't involved. Perhaps I still don't
    understand your configuration.
