  1. Janice, been working on this for hours. Finally works. I saved my contact in CSV format, created and uploaded them to, then in the Windows 10 people app I added account, chose, signed in with same Microsoft account, and they instantly appeared in my people app as well as the windows 10 mail account. I also imported them in the people live app, but I couldn’t get those to move over to the other people app.

  2. I have my outlook email in Windows 10 Mail. Get emails OK. But none of my contacts transferred. How do I do this?
