WLM is merely a client to enable you to receive/send emails. However, like all email clients, it requires setting up with your account details. You can get these from your ISP.

If I'm understanding you correctly;

In the lower left corner of your Windows Live Mail screen, click on Contacts.
The toolbar will change and you'll have an Import button that will let you import your address book.

Found that just tinkering.

Hello Bushman, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you wanted to import old contacts, then the Import button should be in the ribbon at the top like in the screenshot below.

Could you post a screenshot of what you are seeing instead? This may be able to help us determine what may the issue may be.

Be sure to edit out any personal information (ex: email address) in the screenshot before posting though.
