I have a problem with Outlook Hotmail that may be unsolvable. The problem does not exist when I use Google Chrome, Live Mail, Yahoo, Google or Knology mail, but I really prefer MS IE 9 for my email, and I still believe that someone familiar with MS Outlook knows how I can solve the problem. I can receive mail okay, but my contact list is not available. I do not get access to my contact list when I create email or try to forward mail that I have received. I can Reply To and get the address of the sender and if more addresses were in the To window of the mail I received, I can reply to all.
When I select PEOPLE, I cannot view any contacts and donít have any task options. I have been trying to get help from the Outlook and Hotmail forums but none have provided any usable help. I have included a view of the PEOPLE selection using the Snipping Tool to show that I have it properly selected and that I donít have access to any of the tools, like MANAGE, etc. I tried all the suggestions offered, updated my browser and even installed IE 10 which didnít help either. I get the contact list in Live Mail.
I have ĎRepairedí Windows Essentials twice and rebooted with no change in the problem.
Does anyone know how I can get my contacts back when using MS IE 9 Hotmail?
