It is not the most convenient of processes, but you can import/export contacts as needed. You will need to import/export your contacts up to three times, once for each of the following:
-> Addresses Vista's local contact store.
-> Go File->Import->Windows Contacts->CSV or File->Export->Windows Contacts and choose CSV (Comma Separated Values) format.
Windows Live Contacts
-> Addresses Windows Live's local contact store.
-> Press the Alt key and then go File->Import->Comma Separated Values (.CSV) or File->Export->Comma Separated Values (.CSV).
-> Addresses Windows Live's online contact store.
-> Open your Contacts page and then go Manage->Import or Manage->Export, choosing the Outlook Express (using CSV) format.
Hope this helps,
Does anyone know how to sync windows live contacts from a hotmail account with the local windows vista contacts? Or this even possible? I want to do this so that I can sync my live contacts with my mobile. phone.
