Nicknames for Hotmail contacts

Q: Nicknames for Hotmail contacts


Wondering if anyone could give me some advice please? I received an email from someone who also has a hotmail account. I saved their details by simply clicking the 'save to contact' button. Since I did that, all their further emails between us now appeared under a nickname. Unfortunately this nickname wasn't particularly flattering and I'm in the embarrassing position of being accused of storing this person under this term I am absolutely positive that I have not done this and wonder whether this person (unknowingly) has a nickname attached to their account that would show when another hotmail account holder accepts them as a trusted contact? I have tried to ask this on Hotmail without success,

If anyone knows how nicknames on Hotmail work I would be very grateful for any advice,

Thank you

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've been battling my Ipaq 2215's recently taken-on refusal to log onto Hotmail via its wireless card (a Symbol). It works great on other sites but just won't let me get onto Hotmail. Whenever I go to I get this message "Download the 890 bytes file 'default.aspx' to the 'My Documents' folder in Main Memory?" I click Yes, it says the file already exists and should it replace it and I click Yes and then nothing happens.
Anybody who's defeated this demon? Many thanks. I'm brand new on TechSpot

I need to export or otherwise copy my contacts from my smartphone to my desktop PC, but can't figure out how to do it..

My smartphone used to sync with the office Exchange Server, but ideally I now want to sync my Outlook contacts with my home PC using standalone Outlook 2003. My PC runs XP SP3 and ActiveSync 4.5. Smartphone is Windows Mobile 6 Standard.

It looks as if I cannot sync Exchage Server contacts to standalone Outlook - if I try to switch to synching with Outlook it tells me the contacts on my phone will be deleted. Is there a safe way of doing this? I would rather retype all my contacts from the phone screen than risk losing them - I can no longer access my former office's Exchange Server.

If I can't use ActiveSync, is there a way of exporting contacts in bulk from Outlook on Windows Mobile?

Thanks for any help - Firepig

In an effort to make my email more friendly and portable, I set up an account. I followed the instructions to migrate my contacts via a .csv file. When I go to the "People" tile in, all the contacts are there, but when I try to use the "To" button to start composing a new email, it does not have the contacts listed. Any insight on what might be going on? problem with contacts

From what program/service did you export your contacts? I just tried it w/ Gmail. I randomly selected couple names and exported them as a csv file for Outlook. Then from, I imported the file. The names showed up in People, and when I began typing in the To box, the name of the contact appeared. The normal behavior.

Then I randomly selected couple other names in Gmail, but this time exported them as a csv for Gmail. I was able to import this file in The names showed up in People but no other info got imported. No email addresses and no phone numbers. And typing these names into the To box didn't bring up anything. Information was in the csv file, but the fields are arranged differently between the two files.

Perhaps this is what's causing your problem. See if you can export a csv file compatible w/ Outlook.

It is easy to shut down Hotmail. Just contact MSN.
But the notification message requires hotmail. You can use the "vacation" or "away" from the office" messaging service in hotmail to notifiy all senders.
But if you want it gone now, trouble free, send a onetime message to all correspondents in your address book, informing them of the shutdown, and whether or not they can reach you elsewhere.

A:Hotmail rollout gets negative vibes from Thunderbird

GREAT NEWS EVERYONE. Looks like hotmail is allowing POP3 access now. It is very well hidden and not advertised at all. But I found it here. I configured thunderbird and it works directly with hotmail. Add-ons are not necessary.

Add your e-mail account to Microsoft Outlook Express

You can use a POP3 (POP3, or Post Office Protocol 3, is a protocol that's used to retrieve e-mail from a mail server.) server to add your Windows Live Hotmail account to Microsoft Outlook Express and access messages there.
Use a POP3 server to add your Windows Live Hotmail account to Outlook Express

1. In Outlook Express, click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
2. Click Add, and then click Mail.
3. Type your name, and then click Next.
4. Type your full Windows Live Hotmail e-mail address, and then click Next.
5. Enter the following information, and then click Next:
* In the My incoming mail server is a box, click POP3.
* In the Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) server box, type
* In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) server box, type
6. Type the account name and the password for your Windows Live Hotmail account. Clear the Remember password check box unless you're the only person with access to the computer. Make sure that the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) check box isn't selected.
7. Click Next, and then click Finish.
8. In the Internet Accounts window, click the Mail tab, click the Windows Live Hotmail account that you added, and then click Properties.
9. Click the Advanced tab, and under Server Port Numbers, enter the following information, and then click OK:
* In the Incoming mail (POP3) box, type 995.
* In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) box, type 25.
* Under both Outgoing mail (SMTP) and Incoming mail (POP3), select the This server requires a secure connection (SSL) check box.
10. Click Close.

Use Windows Live Mail as your e-mail program

To download and install Windows Live Mail, see Install and run Windows Live Mail for the first time.

To add a Windows Live Hotmail account to Mail, see Add an e-mail, newsgroup, or contacts directory account.

* You may be able to receive mail from a POP3 server with other e-mail programs. To determine if your e-mail program allows this, contact the manufacturer of your e-mail program.

Hey guys, how's it going. I'm trying to convert from the evil empire's browser and email software, to go 100% Mozilla. I love Firefox. It's a great alternative to Explorer. But I want to use Thunderbird also. The only plugin I've found for it to be able to access Hotmail, actually downloads and deletes the messages from Hotmail. Outlook Express just downloads new mail and keeps it on the server - which is a feature I really like. I would like Thunderbird to do the same thing.

Anybody seen any other options for being able to do this? Any links to some good plugins that will do this? Thanks!

For about the past week or so, some of my contacts are shown "Offline" when I know they're not. And it shows me offline on their account. And we can't figure out what is going on. It's a total of about 20 contacts maybe.

We've tried deleting each other and re-adding, and blocking/unblocking, rebooting. Nothing is working. It just shows people offline.

Someone said that it had my MSN ( [email protected] ) registered under two emails, so I checked under and it's only registered to the one above. So I don't know what to do now.

A:MSN Messenger contacts showing offline when they're not

Well, since you can send offline messages with Windows Live Messenger, I'd try that. Hopefully, eventually, the two clients should realize that they're online once you start sending messages. I've had similar problems with MSN, and it sucks. Also try allowing all to contact you in the settings.

Welcome to TechSpot

My best advise would be to either surf to for the Thunderbird Email program, or surf to for the Pegasus email program.
Both are free. Pegasus is well established. Thunderbird is newer but still under development, albeit very stable!
Both can import all your OE data end settings and are much less susceptible to virii etc. than the crappy OE.

When I open the first listing it says "In Folder Contacts" which is the only contact folder I have. When I open the second listing is says "In Folder Duplicate Contacts". I don't see a folder named "Duplicate Contacts".
During my research I found the steps to disable the search from looking in nickname cache:
This hasn't fixed the problem.
I've also rolled back to Outlook 2010 and the problem continues.
We are running an exchange server. I have tried disabling add-ons. I have tried deleting the data file and re-syncing.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi guys I hope I can make this clear to understand and not too confusing I've recently run Killdisk reinstalled Windows Pro x Live Mail Windows Contacts on my laptop got it to where I wanted including all MS updates and email and have done an Windows Live Mail Contacts Acronis backup Before the format I manually saved the email folder with all it's account and email content Then reinstalled WLM on the fresh W install went to 'Users Me AppData Local Microsoft Windows Live Mail' deleted Windows Live Mail Contacts what was in there and then pasted my saved email folder contents Loaded WLM and hey presto Windows Live Mail Contacts everything there with all my emails No problem with that The next thing is putting my mail contacts back also manually saved before the format but I can't get them to show up They normally reside as DBStore files in Windows Live Contacts folder also in the same area as the email 'Users Me AppData Local Microsoft Windows Live Contacts' So I put that folder there but nothing appears in my contacts when I load up WLM I removed the whole folder and decided to do a test and add a new contact in WLM I found out the new contact has appeared in a different place 'Users Me AppData Local Microsoft Windows Live Contacts Default' and then inside there a folder saying and inside that a DBStore file As another test by removing the DBStore from my contact disappeared in WLM but reappeared when I restored the DBStore file to the folder By adding a new contact I had expected windows to create a new Windows Live Contacts folder but it didn't I tried putting all my saved contacts folder in the folder but they still don't appear Any ideas where to put my contacts folders to get them showing up By the way there were folders that I saved each with a DBStore file One of them is MB some are MB and most are MB I don't know if I need them all Perhaps they're cumulative and only the MB has all my contacts Screenshot shows the two contact locations I mentioned

Hello, im new here so sorry if this is in wrong spot or anything.

I recently have taken over full support for a software company and one of the things i have been tasked to do is sync everyone contacts so when a customer calls us we know who it is. what i have been currently doing is using Zoho CRM but i would much rather use office 365 if it is at all possible. i thought about using a public folder but i don't believe that will sync with a android phone because its not directly into its contacts. any help or advise on where to go or what to do would be greatly appreciated!

I have send emails out to my adress book using my groups instead of sending it individually. There are people that want to unsubscribe. How do I find in which group the specific contact is without searching each group manually?
I have like 30 groups with about 80 adress in each. You can imagine how long that is going to take manually.

Please respond
Thank you


When I've seen Groups being used they usually carried part of their name as what the group was such as Quilting, Fishing, Skeet Club, etc. If that was done it should narrow down the search but might have to reply to the request and ask which group or groups the person wants to be removed from. It's a lot like unsubscribing from other subscription sites like newspapers, etc., have to choose/click on which to unsubscribe from.

Q: Hotmail

I have a Hotmail account which I never use. It is **email address removed**. Not sure why I have it. I think I had to create when I got a new laptop with Windows 8.
May main e-mail account is **email address removed**.
Here's my problem: when I send an e-mail from the AT&T account and some recipients reply to that e=mail, they tell me that the address line "defaults" to **email address removed**! Therefore, I do not receive the reply. There is no Hotmail account called **email address removed**, only the **email address removed** one.
When I try to "fix" it at the Hotmail site, it just asks frustratingly stupid questions which cannot be answered.

Using Win 7 with Live Mail 2012. Have reserved Win 10 upgrade. When I upgrade, will my Live Mail contacts be preserved or will I have to recreate them in Win 10? Thanks.

A:Win Live Mail Contacts

Hi Artbuc I think that Windows Live Mail saves information locally on the system in a file, so that file will be loaded once you open back Windows Live Mail under Windows 10 and therefore all your contacts should be there.If you want, you can also export your contacts right before the upgrade just in case, and then import them back in Windows Live Mail if they didn't get transferred.

I recently had a tech transfer my MS Outlook info to my new computer. Now my contacts are there but not accessible by mail.

The Contacts Bar on the left at the top has a box My Contacts with a selection either Contacts (which is blank) or Contacts in Personal Folders (which displays all the contacts I am looking for.)

At the bottom on the bar there is a Yellow Contacts Box which shows Open in New Window or Navigation Pane Options. The Open in New window is blank. So it appears I either need to move the contacts out of Personal Folders or Contacts into Personal Folders. Help is appreciated. Frankandstein

Well the proper way to transfer Outlook info from one computer to the other is to export the PST from the old account, copy it to the new computer and then import it into a matching or new Outlook account. It sounds like it was not done this way and unless you explain in details exactly how it was done I am not sure we can help you. You should also describe which operating systems and versions of Outlook are involved.

I can't believe I can't find the answer to this dilemma, which I've tried to solve for years. Hoping someone might have some insights. I have my own business, and keep a Contacts table in Access 2013. I also have a Contacts folder in Outlook 2013 that I want to keep in sync with my database. Sometimes changes are made in Outlook (or using GSyncit to sync with Google on my phone or tablet) and sometimes when entering service calls in Access. When I go to created a "linked table" from Outlook to Access, I get a separate table of contacts that will not sync with my existing table. Every week, I have to literally export Access data to an Excel CSV and import into Outlook, then go through name by name to choose the latest entry to keep. Ridiculous!

I'm trying to set up Outlook 2016 with a account thats been fine working with Hotmail connector for previous versions of Outlook (2003, 2010)

Now I believe the Hotmail connector does not support Outlook 2016.

So that's fine I entered my details into Outlook for it to automatically setup for me. It uses Exchange ActiceSync?

My problem is while using the account like this it will ONLY sync my inbox, no other folders.

Ive tried entering IMAP settings for hotmail but once i click next to test account Outlook just crashes everytime, and won't open until the mail account i created is deleted via Control Panel>Mail.

I have tried POP3 and this works but i really don't want to use it.

Any suggestions?

Sorry for the length of this post but I think it needs explaining I bought this laptop for a gift to my grandson about three years ago Against my wishes he has used it primarily to play high usage PC games About months ago it was hardly working anymore viruses malware you name it I did a complete factory restore but he set it up to open with his hotmail user account on the quot Lock Screen quot in Windows but he did give me his how hotmail email address and password so I can login Well within about two months later he had all the same issues back again and so he just quit using the laptop completely He gave it back to me and I cleaned everything up again without doing a factory recovery and also upgraded it from the original Windows to Windows Everything is working perfectly it s very fast now and I love it account login from How a login? local to to a change hotmail Only issue I can see is if he my grandson deletes or changes his hotmail account I won t be able to login and also his emails are available for me to read but I don t and I don t use his email account I use a webmail account of my own As I mentioned earlier this laptop is running and set up perfectly for me with this one exception Without doing a complete factory recover how can I chnage this laptop from requiring his my grandsons hotmail address and password to no login being required at all as I am the only user now or to run with a local account as I believe it is referred to nbsp

Firstly, apologies if this is answered elsewhere.

A friend of mine has been locked out of his hotmail account after he opened an email from his friend who had his account hacked.

I've tried to help him get back in but filling in the form that Microsoft direct you to. This form asks for many personal things such as old passwords, security questions (i.e. first pet, mothers maiden name etc.) and also email addresses of people you've recently contacted.

Now, my question is, is this really from Microsoft or not ?? Many people I've spoken to say that Microsoft would never ask for such detailed information (and certainly not other peoples email addresses) in order to reactivate your account. But the site seems genuine and passes all the certificate checks etc.

Can someone shed some light on this please ??

Had a sudden issue with hotmail/outlook, (hotmail user since long before msoft owned it, so it's always been hotmail to me) But ran into an issue hwile trying to respond to a question, rebooted and loaded a screen that I could swap to in an instant that would be very nice and make a lot of sense.

I mean it looked good, was very easy to understand and made an f'n hell of a lot of sense. Microsoft please keep that interface, it's as clear as slap in the face

I have a hotmail account and would like to share one specific folder with a colleague. She uses Gmail but we could also use dropbox or a Hotmail account for her. The Hotmail folder contains messages that I have my hotmail account set to automatically move messages from certain senders to that folder and she handles those messages for me. Now, I have to forward those to her and am hoping to be able to do this automatically.

A:Share a Hotmail Folder with Gmail or Dropbox User?

You can create a rule in Hotmail to automatically forward those messages to her, but you cannot share an email folder with her.

WLM 2011 with Vista OS looks for duplicate names. I would like to search for duplicate name plus email address because some contacts have more than one address. This seems more logical than duplicate names. Do not see this option in the filters. Is this possible?
