Nicknames for Hotmail contacts

Q: Nicknames for Hotmail contacts

Hello

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

Helen

Preferred Solution: Nicknames for Hotmail contacts

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Nicknames for Hotmail contacts

Have you gone down the contact list and made certain it's entered entirely correct there?
I get hotmail to hotmail mails all the time, and everyone shows up normally.
I'm wondering if you didn't do something weird when you added them.

I want to move some contacts from my google account to my hotmail account, without having to manually enter them. Is there a way to accomplish that? Thanks.

A:Moving Google Contacts to Outlook/Hotmail Contacts

Download the contacts from Google online in CSV format to a folder then import into Outlook.

I've almost always used Win Live Mail (me @ msn.com), but was advised this week to switch to Hotmail after my e-mail was hijacked & bogus msgs went to a lot of my contacts (& a few that are not my contacts).

I'm not "comfortable" with Hotmail. WLM is just easier for me to work with, maybe because it seems more like old Outlook Express. Anyway, I'm having trouble navigating within Hotmail. Things seem to change in subtle ways (& sometimes, not so subtle) from session to session or within a session. I'm sure I've clicked the wrong place, but . . .

In Hotmail (Outlook) all my folders are listed on the left. Yesterday(?), my contacts (& I think some other stuff) were listed at the bottom of that list. Maybe I somehow collapsed the contact list & then saw contacts. Today I can't find contacts anywhere. Where are they?

A:I can't see my Hotmail Contacts

Hi jarhtmd, This may seem unimportant at present but, how many contacts do you have.

Hi,

Do you use your Windows Live email account via web browser only? If yes, then all you should do is to change the account password to new, strong one. Update also your vulnerable software - run Secunia vulnerability check here and fix its findings.

My wife wants me to delete a contact. That contact appears when she types the letter "B" and Bill appears. He used to be on contacts but was deleted long ago.
The problem is that when I went to Contacts to delete him, guess what?, he is not on the B list.
What gives with Hotmail? How can I delete a listing that doesn't appear?.
 

A:Solved: contacts in Hotmail

Are you using a hotmail client like Windows Live Mail for instance? Or is this direct browser-hotmail account access?
If its a client, check with the address list in the online account, I've had old contacts come back when syncing a client and that's because they are stored online with the hotmail account.

This problem has occurred several times and has caused me great embarrassment. I click a name from my contacts list, which appears in the "send to" field. The name I select is the only name displayed in that field, and no names are displayed in the CC or BCC fields. I write my email and send it, but when I recieve the hotmail confirmation, it says my email has been sent to my intended receipient, as well as some other random person in the address book (not anyone near the intended person in alphebetical order). One particularly graphic email I sent to my boyfriend was somehow also sent by hotmail to my MOTHER, much to everyone's horror. Why?! Has this happened to anyone else? Can I prevent this in the future??

A:Importing contacts into hotmail from excel

Hi Boomer123454

Try creating at least one Contact in Hotmail, then Export the Hotmail Contact list to your Desktop as a .csv file.
Contacts > Options > Export Contacts

Open the .csv file, then you can see the template Hotmail uses and either paste the information from your Excel sheet to the .csv file or change the order and Headers of your Excel file to match the Hotmail .csv file.​
Import the .csv file into Hotmail:
Contacts > Options > Import Contacts
Select the Microsoft Outlook icon.

In Step 2, it should default to the Microsoft Outlook (using csv) option. If not, select that option.
For Step 3, click the Browse button and browse to, and select, the .csv file you created, or added to, on your Desktop.
Click the Import Contacts button that appears in the Hotmail window.
​The Import should begin.
Hotmail will tell you if it is successful or not.
Let us know if that works for you or not.

A:Import Hotmail contacts into Outlook

This may or may not work,
1. First have the HotMail acct installed in your OE application. To do this follow instrucitons at this link
2. Than open up Address Book> TOOLS> Press Synchronize Now.
3. This will move contacts from the Address Book's Main Contact folder
(not any contacts in sub-folders that you have created) to the HotMail
Address Book, and visa versa. You will need to check both address books
for duplicate entries, and delete as necessary.

Hope it helps

I have windows 7 64 and in my hotmail there are email accounts that I can't delete. They must be spam placed there from a website I visited. When I click on CC, they show up in the list, but when I go to manage my contacts, they are not there.

How do I get rid of them?

Recently my Hotmail account sent out spam to all the contacts on my list (something about an ipod deal), but I checked my sent folder and nothing was shown to leave my account, so I'm wondering if it was a virus. If so, does anyone know how I can get rid of it?

I've changed my Hotmail password just to be safe. I also run full Norton Anti-Virus scans everyday, but nothing has been found except tracking cookies! I have no idea what's going on with my computer...please help!

Thank you!

Hi. I'm at something of a wit's end. I've had a situation for a bout a week where my Hotmail account has sent multiple emails to various members of my contacts list without my permission. I have changed my password on multiple occasions and am fairly confident that the problem is not one of my account being compromised in the traditional fashion.

I have run multiple Spyware/Malware removal tools to no avail and have Microsoft Security Essentials installed with definitions up-to-date.

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Greetings,

This is my first post, so if I'm not doing something right, please let me know.

Here's the problem: All of my contacts are missing from my Hotmail account. I read some other posts pertaining to this problem, but still can't figure out how to resolve my issue. I have not reinstalled software, or had any computer related problems since last using my contacts list.

Thanks,

Hi,
I use regular, free hotmail. All contacts in my CONTACTS list are ok. But if I click forward button to forward an email, then click on the TO button to see the dropdown list of contacts, there are 4 porn sounding names without addresses at the bottom of the list , under the legit contacts. I can't find any way to delete them as these are not in the regular CONTACTS list. First it was only one, but about every 2 weeks a new phantom entry shows up.
Can someone explain this and provide a solution. Wipe and restart fresh is NOT a solution. Thanks.

Hello I was alerted to this problem a few days ago when I received the unsendable error message in my hotmail inbox saying the e-mail could not be delivered because the recipient had spam blockers The message has returned a few times each day from approximately e-mail addresses that I rarely if ever use only one is used every - months I immediately ran my norton and spybot sd both of which I keep updated and both of which said I had no infections I've checked my sent e-mails and see that this e-mail which is titled something hotmail e-mails randomly to sending contacts like quot I played this free game for a few minutes quot was only sent to hotmail randomly sending e-mails to contacts about or people and since I rarely e-mail them I deleted their addresses except one This morning the sent list for that e-mail included that one e-mail address hotmail randomly sending e-mails to contacts and one new e-mail address and I have deleted both from my contacts on hotmail A second problem which may be related is that I have been unable to download SP since it came out when I get a message that windows has an update for me if I click to allow it to install it always comes back that it could not be installed the system is unstable please remove programs It's happened so many times in the past few years that I ignore most windows downloads A week ago or so Norton wanted to download its update which required both SP and The latest Explorer to be installed I tried again to install SP and it was blocked meaning I could not update Norton I tried to follow a thread I think form this site to allow SP to install and cleared out some files but still no success At some point in the last few days I tried but could not download AdAwareSE I have worked through the steps before posting and besides not being able to get the SP download I also could not open the DSS exe file although I have downloaded it onto my desktop I ran the Panda check and I have attached that log I'd be appreciative of any directions you might have thanks peace Tony

Hi there,

Ried from here recently resolved a case of WindowsRestore virus on my PC. You can see the thread here:

Windows Restore Virus- Any Advice Thanks?

However last night my hotmail account was hacked and a virus email was sent to all my contacts (without my knowing ofcourse). I have since changed my password.

Is this coincidence or are having the windows restore virus and having my account hacked connected? Ried did a great job cleaning my machine but could there have been something left over? Involving a keylogger maybe?

Thanks.

A:Hotmail account sending out spam to my contacts list

Unless you are absolutely certain that the E-mail is actually coming from your computer, it would be more likely that someone else's computer is infected and the malware found your E-mail address there. And too, spammers often mask their stuff as if it came from an E-mail daemon, since most ISPS do not filter that address.

Windows Live Mail is Hotmail, with a new look. So I am confused as to what you are trying to do.
It sounds like you created a whole new name for Windows Live Mail... you didn't need to do that.

If you just open Windows Live Mail and logon as the HotMail name you will see all of the contacts.

I searched for a topic similar to mine, but I found none. So, here goes...

I currently have a database that tracks my contacts in numerous ways. However, the place I'm building this database for often holds events that these contacts attend. I created an events database (using a template), and then exported it to my current database. Ultimately, I would like to be able to show which contacts were scheduled to attend the event and which contacts actually attended, both in the contacts area and in the events area.

Any thoughts on how to set that up?

drop the contacts folder "features" and become standard folders as shown below. 








As you can see there is no "new contact" button or any other contact related folder action.





Other computers work without any issues (they hold the contacts folder "features").











I can't find a way to customize the standard folder so it becomes a contact one. Can anyoene please help me?

I have a need to find a Contacts/Address-book/or integrated mail application that permits the lockdown of the contacts data. Ideally, the info stashed in that Contacts application would be password-protected, encrypted, and could be written directly to a removable device location - in other words, ability to change the default destination for the store to a USB or otherwise removable "drive".

Anyone know of such, or know if there is a version of Outlook or Thunderbird or ???xyz that would have such features configurable?

thank you

A:Secure/encrypted Contacts application? Or mail w/contacts

Right out of box, Outlook has an option to set a password on each of its datafiles (which contain both mails and contacts) which is asked each time it's opened or attached to an existing installation. But I don't know if it's really encrypted or how easy is to crack those.

Another option may be to use an encryption tool like Truecrypt. It can create a virtual drive which is in fact a regular encrypted file on the disk (somewhat similar to zip files, but with a really strong encryption). The idea is to setup such a "drive", and then put the sensitive data files there. Outlook allows to locate its data files anywhere, not sure about Thunderbird.

Hi johnbigbootie89,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Let me apologize that it took so long for someone to reply to your request - but it is now active and I think we'll be able to resolve it. In fact, I think I have just what you need.

Check out the following article: Importing contacts from Windows Contacts folder | MSOutlook.info. Make sure you use the Vista procedure. It seems the article was designed specifically for this purpose so I have high hopes it will accomplish your objective. You do not drag the contents (which is essentially copy/paste) - you use import/export instead.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

I have not made any changes to my pc. I do not receive any kind of error message. I have run several online antivirus, all of them show zero infections, with the exception of Onecare from Microsoft that showed one error but was unable to see the kind of error. Before this I have never had any kind of problem or strange behavior. .Thanks in advance for all your help.

Hi, I recently replaced my dying Nokia Lumia 735 with a Microsoft Lumia 640. Everything worked perfectly fine on the Lumia 735 and changes in Contacts synced automatically between the phone to computer and vice versa. I did however make it my practice to generally make changes on the phone first. Because of the Microsoft Account the change over worked fine. However in an exercise addressing the issue of Contact names no longer being displayed when calls come in I had reason to make changes to some phone number formats. I made these changes on the phone. Now three days activity later I am noticing that the changes have not shown up on my computer contacts. All my email accounts are working fine.

A:Moving Contacts from Windows Contacts into People App

If it's not working by importing to the Mail App directly you could try to log into your mail account online through the browser and access People from there. On the main page there is an option to import from file and through that you have the option of CSV or Outlook. If it works there then your Mail App should just update with your contacts at next sync.

why did the other 48 contacts not go with the pst? yes, they are recently added contacts that are missing.

OL 07 not connected to MS Exchange when I created PST, but is this a synch problem?

Thanks in advance!

Hi I have somewhat of a weird blocked? on randomly Contacts Contacts web? not added problem here Some of my MSN contacts were randomly blocked unblocked And later certain contacts were not quot added quot as a contact on web messenger preventing me from talking to them on Hotmail s web messenger There was also an issue where even though me and my friend had each other added we were appearing offline Contacts randomly blocked? Contacts not added on web? to each other without being blocked He did not see me back online until he deleted and re-added me It just seemed like general hectic chaos and after logging back into windows and fixing my blocks unblocks I had to quot add quot people to my messenger on the web because they did not appear added online on messenger on the web even though they were added and functional on the client itself I know my explanation here is a little chaotic too but that s really because I don t know WTF went on here But I DO know for sure it is not a virus since a majority of my time is spent on Linux and I change my password constantly while in Linux as well So it is highly unlikely to be malware My theory is this is some server-sided glitch I ve done googling and that seemed to be the general consensus from results like these http answers yahoo com question index qid AAz NmF This also apparently happens to my thread who himself a techie He also uses Linux However I did not come across a bleepingcomputer thread yet And this is the first time it ever happening to me So for primarily the issue of contacts being randomly blocked unblocked what does bleepingcomputer think Do you think it s a server-sided issue Is there any explanation why this could happen to me in particular and advice how to prevent fix this completely I hope my this thread isn t too hard to understand since it s am But I d really appreciate if someone could explain to me their theory what went on here Thanks

How can I print selected contacts from my contacts list in windows 10?

A:Printing selected contacts on contacts list

Look up "copying an address book. Also see here:
Copying an address book.
I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to do it, and will come back if it works. Printing a contacts.csv file was not good.
As a short term answer, purely for the names and e mails, I called up the address book in full screen view, and used the snipping tool to save a page at a time (5 pages) and printed them via paint.

The Windows Contacts (Windows 7) only has "organize" "share with" and "burn options". It does not have options for "add" or "print".

In Vista this was due to the folder being the wrong type. I right clicked in the empty white space looking for "customize this folder", but it didn't appear.

Make sure you are in the right folder C:\Users\UserName\Contacts There should be a Double sided arrow to the right of the last entry on the tool bar pointing to the right. Clicking this should give you Display Additional Commands. Here you can add New Contact etc.

I have upgraded my Computer from Vista and Windows live mail 2011 to Windows 7 and Windows live mail 2012.

Live Mail 2011 used as Contacts just the Vista Contacts.
Live Mail 2012 is having it's own Contacts which are not compatible with Windows 7 Contacts.

I found a way to import Windows 7 Contacts as Live Mail 2012 Contacts but no way to export it as .contact file again (export can be done as CSV or VCF file only).

Since I still want to synchronize my Windows 7 contacts with an old Vista Computer the Import is not a solution for me.

Is there a way to persuade Live Mail to use the Windows Contacts again
and where are these new Live Mail Contacts saved?

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts seems not to be used.

Hi Walter, welcome to Seven Forums.

Your best plan is to access your mail account directly, the use .csv format to export / import them into WLM 2012.
If you don't use WLM signed-in they wont be remembered.

I removed Outlook Hotmail Connector because I considered it bloatware. I don't use Hotmail. I use a hybrid system involving Outlook for my computer and Gmail for my Andriod phone and that is working fine.

After removing Connector, I kept getting a message from Outlook about installing the "upgrade" Hotmail Connector. As I was having the red x problem with graphic images not appearing in my Outlook emails, in despair I allowed it to load. The real fix came through as SP2 after I repaired Windows Update and got it working again.

So, is it bloatware? Is there a downside to removing it? Is it benign enough to just leave it alone? What would you do?

Thanks for any light you can shed on this.

The Hotmail message "We can't connect to Hotmail right now. Please make sure that you're connected to the internet and try again." seems to appear all the time.

Is this caused by poor internet speed, because I've got that, or is it something with google chrome, the browser I'm using? When I'm using the Hotmail mailbox it seems to work okay, but this message appears, seems like, every time I use it.

It's mainly annoying since I can't understand the cause of why it appears. If I'm not really noticing a problem while accessing Hotmail, why does this message appear so frequently?

Help ? I can?t find my Contacts for Outlook! I went from Windows XP to Windows 7. I also went from Office 2002 to Office 2007. I used the Windows Easy Transfer process and the ?Window.old? file is on my hard drive. The problem is that my Contacts from old Outlook are not in my new Outlook Contacts folder. I can?t find them anywhere. I have searched the ?Windows.old? folder and everywhere else I can think of, but no luck. I don?t know if this is significant, but none of my e-mail settings transferred either. ( I have set up the accounts manually.)
Is this problem created because I went from Office 2002 to 2007 while going to Windows 7? If so, should I install Office 2002 and see if I can find the files? After three hours of searching for a solution I?m stumped. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

A:WAB vs contacts

Are you talking about Outlook or Outlook Express? Outlook uses pst files, not the wab, but it can import email contacts from the wab. If you want to use Outlook and all your addresses are in the wab file, import it (pretty easy to do in any versions I have used - you don't say what version of Office you are using - I haven't touch 2007, however).
Oh well, here are the instructions for both 2007 and 2003 - they haven't changed, according to MS.
1. In Outlook, on the File menu, click Import and Export.
2. Click Import Internet Mail and Addresses, and then click Next.

Import and Export Wizard
3. Click Outlook Express.
4. Select the Import mail check box.
5. Click Next.
6. Click Finish.
7. To save a copy of the import summary to your Inbox, click Save in Inbox.

Has anyone successfully imported a cvs file of contacts from Thunderbird into Windows Live Mail?
What has happened to me (I have tried more than a few times) is that a confusion develops between first and second name, display name, and email address. Each time I import the cvs file the result is a surprise - I never know what to expect.

Can anyone suggest a way of accurately importing TB's contacts into WLM, please? The reason I am considering switching to WLV is because lately TB seems to take forever to load.

I thank one and all in advance for all assistance.

A:contacts - from TB to WLM

Hi:

I do use TB (have done so for 100 years, since the days of Netscape Mail) and I do not use WLM.
So, I would be more inclined to troubleshoot and fix TB before changing email clients.
Aside from profile issues (e.g. corruption, lack of compacting, bad extension, etc.), the most common cause would be some sort of conflict with a security application, either AV and/or firewall.

For TB help, I suggest the following:
Standard diagnostic - Thunderbird - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
Safe Mode - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
Category:Issues (Thunderbird) - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
Having said that, perhaps this article here has the info you need:

How do I import and export email, contacts, and calendars with Windows Live Mail? - Windows Help

Some TB help articles that might help, using their recommendations "in reverse", to export from TB, rather than to import into TB:

Import address list from text file - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
Sharing address books - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
Moving address books between profiles - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

Another option might be to use Mozbackup to save your TB address book, and then to use that file to import it into WLM, assuming WLM supports doing so.

I hope this helps,

(P.S. I think you might be referring to the TB address book file as a "csv" file, rather than "cvs"?)

A:Contacts

Make sure you have the latest version of WLM and any updates that go with it. If it still is buggy try un-installing and re-installing it. You will have to re-add all your contacts manually do this, unless you can find them and save them. For what ever reason, WLM does get corrupted from time to time. It's happened to me a few times and and a complete un-install and re-install was the only fix for me.

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.
