    Window Live Mail Contacts -- cannot edit


    I see similar problems on this forum, but not exactly what I am seeing.
    I have Vista Home Premium with Windows Live Mail. I originally
    downloaded my contacts from Outlook Express. I can see the contact
    list. I can add new contacts and I can delete contacts. I cannot edit
    contacts. When I bring up the Windows Live Contacts box (either by
    double-clicking on the Contacts icon or following menu path Tools
    Contacts) I get the list with all of the usual icons (New, Edit
    Contact, Delete Contact, E-mail contacts, etc.). I can select a
    contact and click on Edit Contact and I get the Edit Contact box -- but
    I can't edit anything.

    Please help.

    You are more likely to get expert help for WLM if you post in the
    WLM newsgroup:
