Windows 7: Windows Live Mail - Contacts question...

Windows Live Mail - Contacts question...

Hello first time poster here.
I have a hotmail.com email account and an outlook.com email account. I would like to access these two email accounts using Windows Live Mail. I have set up both accounts in WLM. But I noticed that I am "signed in" to WLM as either one or the other account even though I can send and receive email from both accounts.

My problem is, I only have access to the contacts of the account I am "signed in" to. So if I am "signed in" to WLM using my hotmail username & password, I can send an email from the outlook.com account but I can only see my hotmail contacts. I would like to keep the contacts separate since one is personal and one is work. So I am repeatedly forced to sign in and out of both accounts when I want to get to my two contact lists. Its very annoying... is this how it is supposed to work, or am I missing something here?

What I want to do is, if I'm sending from my outlook.com email let me see my outlook.com contacts, and if I'm sending from my hotmail.com account let me see my hotmail contacts. Is this possible to do? (without merging my contact lists).

Thanks for any help.

When you sign in to the accounts can you not click the box to keep you signed in . I hv a hotmail account configured to WLM and that shows all the contacts I have. If you want to keep them separate just put the contacts on one account in a sub folder of the main contacts folder and same with the other one. You can then just toggle between the two!
