    import contacts from other e-mail accounts onto Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta...


    Hi

    Does anyone know how to import contacts from other e-mail accounts onto
    Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta?

    Just thought I'd ask because I've got a load of contacts from my AOL account
    that I really would like to have on it... any suggestions?!



    Regards,

    JK.

    Could you please knock off the "kiddy" leet speak that may be cute in your
    IM program but isn't really helpful in a newsgroup. Thanks.

    Guess ur in a bad temper?? There is nothing "kiddy" about leet speak. This
    is the way of digital communication whole new generations are growing up
    with (used in fora, im, mail, sms,...), wether u like it or not.

    "Because of this derivation from the word "elite", calling someone or
    something "leet" may be considered a compliment, although it is also used in
    an ironic derogatory manner" (copyright wikipedia)

    I suppose ur using it with the second connotation.
    If so, could u please knock off that patronizing tone that may be accepted
    by ur staff but isn't really helpfull to anyone. Thanks.

    All you've proven is that asking a polite question from a jerk gets garbage
    back in response. Welcome to a special file for people just like you. Have
    a great time.

    Hello Mr. sim.seb

    I have to agree with Mr. Pickering. I am 18 years old and I never would express myself such a way. To me it is derogatory and very not polite. I do not participate too much in newsgroups and that is my Dad's domain but from what I have been reading in newsgroups there is almost nobody expressing themselves in that not very understandable English language.

    Bye

    So exporting the contacts from AOL, importing them to OE and then reinstall
    WLMD could work.
