Windows Live Mail on Windows 7 and gmail

Hi. I installed this application, and set it up; but I don't see my address book in here.

How do I set it up, so my address book appears on the PC as well as on the net, and if I update or modify anything in it, it also updates on the web end?? Thanx folks.

Also, is this application the BEST browser for e-mail (Gmail)?? Maybe there is something batter to use with gmail?? Thanx folks.

You can setup Windows Live Mail (WLM) to handle Gmail without going back and forth. I have mine setup to retrieve mail from several accounts. I don't use Gmail but you might check to see if it has an "Export" function for the address book then "Import" that book into WLM. There's no automatic update between the various email providers. That's up to you. If you keep your address book on WLM, you can send and receive email on all your accounts there and not worry about keeping all the others in sync.

And on my mobile too. I use it with my Android mobile, and the web.

Why?? Because if I update web or mobile address book; they sync. I want to add some kind of a mail client to this "chain". Is it possible?? Where is a good place to seek help for this issue? Thank you

I'm the wrong person. I have a old flip phone and hardly use it. I also don't feel the need to check my email every five minutes.
