    Outlook.com


    Hello
    I was having trouble deleting names I imported from Gmail to Outlook,com.

    I finally got an answer from MS to click the gear near my name(in people), untic Google then delete the contact.

    My question is this; what does it mean to filter an contact so unticing allowed this to work?

    Thank you

    windows 8 is synced across all the social networks, some by default, others you have to allow. This is why you have to do it through the people app. Or what I do, I turn all that synced stuff off.

    I do not use the MS account b/c of all that synching.
    Is there another way to stop synching as it bothers me too.


    Regarding my initial question, does anyone know how to handle the following; Outlook.com>people>gear near name>'filter out' = examples; Google, Outlook.com, Skype, Messenger etc.

    I do not understand what this does other than allow me now to delete a contact I could not delete before I unchecked Google and deleted the Google contact.

    Thank you
    Peter
