    I have just bought my wife a new laptop with Windows 8 - Was this a big mistake?

    I am trying to import her email contacts into the windows mail; but I just can't sus it out.

    I have a csv file ready to import; how the heck do I do it please?

    Thanks,

    Simon

    Open the mail program, Click on Contacts on the left side (look at the picture below)
    Up on top you will see Import/Export Contacts
    Click on Import Contacts
    Look for the csv file on your HD
    and Highlight it
    Follow the rest of the instructions and it should put the contacts in

    Hi Simon, try signing in to windows live mail and follow the instructions above by Robinb9, Mail App looks a bit unfinished product to me.
    Download Mail from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Thanks for your reply. However, screenshot is totally different to what I have in windows 8 mail.

    I can't see any of what is shown in the screen shot otherwise I could have selcted import.

    I have a very plain mail screen; could I be in the wrong view.

    Because as said you need to go to the windows live essentials 2012 website given here. Download the program and pick windows live mail to install. Then you put in your mail info then you will see my picture
