Windows Live Mail contact list
I am using Win Live Mail (Win 7) I recently signed out of Live. I still received mail from my server but when I tried to send an email, I discovered my contacts were no longer available. I had to sign in to Live Mail to get them. I don't like the fact that my contacts are not available except when I am signed in. I also recently discontinued the alert from the calendar which I didn't know was kept online as well.
I suppose this is another "social media friendly service" that I don't want. I have bellsouth and a Hotmail addy; with att as my server.
What options are available for email where I can keep the contact list on my computer? Thanks!
