WLM contacts catagory will not load to an email

I just reformatted my laptop with windows 7 home premium ( same as before ) but now when I go to send an email using a catagory the catagory shows up when I type in the first letter in the "To" box but when I hit send there are no addresses, this happens when I am on line with WLM or off line, I have re instaled the contacts, deleted the catagory and set it up again...... and looked I think everywhere for solutions the catagory name shows in the "TO" box but there are no addresses .....can you help me please.

Thank you roadrunner for this help, I may have to go to this but one of the points I wanted to do was not have to sign in to any online acc. I wanted to use my email off line to hot mail, or anyother. As i have stated I have loaded my addresse into WLM on my computer and sometimes it works,few times but some, the next day when I tried it again I got some of the names to load in the catagory but not many, I have loaded my addresses into WLM up there in cyberland and they do work also sometimes, most times my question still is how do I get it to work off line it used to before I reformatted my computer.

I have jioned one of the mail cliants and the catagory works with them and the strange thing is after i log off the off line gatagory wil work and sometimes it works without loging on, but this is still not all the time i need the catagory to work off line as i live in the country where there are places there is not connection to the net and writng an email to send later is what i want

If you don't sign-in to WLM or any other service, your settings/changes won't be remembered.

NO
As you are not signed in automatically, all you need to do is sign-in everytime you use WLM then you will have full control of the settings you made.
