    Outlook contacts vs. address book and people


    OK I'm confused. I finally managed to import all my contacts from roadrunner and Live to Outlook, but the contacts appear under PEOPLE. How do I get them to the address book so that when I click TO: to send an email the contacts appear?????

    People in Outlook 2013 is the old Contacts. When you create new email and click To, the list will appear.

    It doesn't show by my email address, just under my Outlook.com name and that means every email I send I have to stop and click the outlook thingie.

    I change the outlook.com address to my gmail address and click apply. I close and reopen and it's back to outlook.com. It won't let me put my gmail address as default.Click image for larger version

    I have the address book but it's only under the outlook.com mail address so I have to switch to it every time I want to send mail. It's too confusing... I've spend hours on this. I'm just going to add every contact by hand. If I had done that last night I'd be done now.
