Windows 7: How can I sort e-mail contacts in Windows Live Mail?

How can I sort e-mail contacts in Windows Live Mail?

In Win XP, the contacts selection called up the contact name and e-mail in separate columns, so that you could sort the list by name or by e-mail address.
Is there any way of doing that in Win 7?
Occasionally I get an e-mail with just the e-mail address, but not a contact name, and I'd like to be able to find out who it is.
All suggestions appreciated.

Under the Home tab in Contacts Click on View there is a Sort By with an arrow. Click there and you have a choice of how to sort, last or first name.
Also if you click on Mail- the same thing- Under the Home Tab-View- there is also a way to sort the emails

Lol naa. I just know a lot about WLM. I was one of the first beta testers for it and still am. And I mainly use it myself
Works great for me cause I can sync all my contacts and emails through my @live mail account on all the computers I have

Exporting Live Mail Contacts

Hey Robind9 ~
~ Using the '.CSV' option to export my contacts to an external drive, it auto-saved in Excel. Is that normal? Will they import back to Live Mail after I hose and get my laptop back up? Thanks!
