    Moving Contacts from email into Win 8


    I have successfully set up the Mail tile to access my email. The settings indicate that contacts should be imported. However, they are not. The People tile is empty. Is there a way to import my contacts into WIN 8 mail. I understand that they woudl go into PEOPLE, however I just cannot figure this out.

    Thank You for any assistance.
