Re: Windows Live Mail - contacts
Dave already answered your main question.
WLM uses the contacts from whichever Live ID (Hotmail) account
you signed in with. If you add a new contact, it will automatically
sync with your Hotmail contacts. If you don't want to use (or sync)
with Hotmail contacts, go to Tools, Options, Connection, "Stop
signing in." Then WLM will use the non-synced contacts you
imported from Windows Contacts.
