Windows 7: failed contact import from WLM to Outlook 2010

failed contact import from WLM to Outlook 2010

After following directions (Export Windows Live Mail email, contacts, and calendar data to Outlook), the contacts appear in OL, but only as names and phone #'s....no emails. Yes, I've double checked that the desired boxes are checked when exporting from WLM, have tried DOS and Windows as comma separated data. I'm good at following directions, but quite unknowing about theory and structure of windows.

Any suggestions?

Ranger4, thanks for the response! I am not trying to save messages from WML to outlook, just my contacts. The website referenced below doesn't seem to help with that.

I just can't figure out why, as instructed, I export the contacts from WML as a comma separated value (.csv), only certain fields are retrieved...i.e. name and phone #. Yes, I have checked almost the entire list of fields to transfer. It's the email addys that are important!

Thanks again for your help!
