C:\<username>\Contacts was not the correct location... wrong google link... sorry.
On WLM I don't see an option to import Contacts. Just Import Messages.

When you exported in windows mail.... what file(s) were created? A csv-file or multiple files?

And if I want to access my WLM from another PC, does THAT PC have to have Windows Live Mail installed? That's certainly a problem! Not every PC that's even capable of using WLM actually has it installed. The only reason I ask is because my Verizon Email disappears. I've gone into the WLM settings on W7 and the WM settings on the Vista PC and check-marked the box that says to keep a copy of my email on the server. I doesn't matter. It populates with a few emails, then it goes away.

Never get mail from the mailserver form 2 or more pc's! Half of the mail will be on 1 pc....other half on other pc. Unless..... you " check-mark the box that says to keep a copy of my email on the server" and 'get the messages form another pc before they expire.

If that doesn't work... hmmm .... does WLM delete it even if that option has been checked (check on other pc)? Or does WM delete it (check on other pc)?

WLM is just an mail client... it doens't matter if other pc's have another mailclient

I'm thinking it might be a phone problem. One of our phones might be set up with a third party mail client, and if that box is unchecked on that phone, I'm figuring that it overrides the settings on Windows Mail and WLM.

That setting tells the mailserver to keep the mail (most of the time fetched mails are kept for 14 days). If client hasn't that setting... mail will be deleted on mail server after fetching it.

So it doesn't overidde any settings!!! If phone has that setting not checked..... any other client doesn't see the mail anymore (after fetching by phone).... it's already deleted.

Easy to test (just send yourself a mail). Adjust the settings so it works

Maybe we're on a slightly different page, here. I WANT to keep the mail on the Verizon server. That way I can easily check my email at work, where I don't have Windows Live Mail or Windows Mail. I just have access to the internet where I can sign on to Verizon, enter my password and view my email. The problem is that my Verizon email gets pulled off the server by some unknown mail client. It can't be happening on my Vista desktop, since Windows Mail has the box checked to keep a copy. Ditto for Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail.

That's why I'm thinking it's some setting on my phone or my wife's. If WLM fetches the Verizon mail and keeps a copy, and the 10 minutes later Windows Mail fetches and leaves a copy, and then 10 minutes later the phone fetches and deletes it from Verizon... well, that would explain it, wouldn't it?

When you say "Some unknown mail client" are you talking about on the phones?

What kind of phones? There has to be a setting somewhere.

Well, I'm guessing the phones. I've taken the battery out of my iphone, and all my Verizon emails are still on the Verizon webmail page. It's been over 3 hours now, and the emails since 6:49 PM EST are on both WLM and Verizon webmail.
