Where can I locate Windows live mail contact list?

Since it seems people have been having problems with this, what I did was opened WML and entered each email address individually. But when i went to look for contact list on C: drive, still cant find the contact list for the ones I entered. I had tried all the other options I read about, but no luck. So what do I have to do?
Thank you.

Hello Tazny, and welcome to Seven Forums.

WLM does not store it's contacts in your C:\Users\(user-name)\Contacts folder like Windows Mail in Vista did. Instead, you should be able to open and view them by clicking on Contacts as in the screenshot below.

Hope this helps,

Contacts are not stored anywhere unless you have a Windows Live ID and sign-in to WLM with it.

I was able to find them before, but had a problem and had to reset my comp to factory image.I cant remember where I saw how to do it. so what I did was entered the contacts one at a time on WLM. they must be in a hidden folder somewhere.

I don't recall turning on the Vacation Notice in Windows Live Mail but, nevertheless, it's on. Senders receive an e-mail from my Live account with the subject "Vacation reply" and no text, just my given name. Where is the control used to turn it off? I can't locate it.
