WinLiveMail: several problems

Hopefully somebody can educate me. I have a new Asus lappy with Win7HomePrem and I got Windows Live Mail; latest version. Here is my list of problems:

For multiple email accounts there should be an option for ONE "inbox" and ONE "deleted" etc for ALL
of the email accounts.

I dragged some contacts from the "All contacts" to a different list of contacts, and then deleted it from the "All contacts, it is deleted from BOTH lists and is GONE forever! The instructions I saw indicated contacts could be MOVED but they are NOT moved; they are COPIED.

I held down the Ctrl key and selected many of my "All contacts" and then tried to drag them to a new folder for contacts; only a few of them were copied. I had to do it one-by-one. Even that did not work well; sometimes I had to drag/drop a contact several times to copy it. On top of all that, it froze so many times in the copying process that it became virtually impossible to do the job and then a message told me that "Windows Live Mail has stopped working and needs to be shut down."

I can make new category of contacts, but there is no way to use ONLY that list of contacts when I am composing a message. I have 800+ contacts and now have to go through that whole list to pick the contacts whose addies I want on the new email. This is incredibly bad. I need a "Default contact list" for the contacts who I use daily as opposed to those I seldom use.

When I try to delete emails from the "Deleted" items folder, it asks me if I am sure. This is a nuisance.

There is no "SEND ALL" nor "Receive all" emails now; this is bad.
