    Hello guys

    I was searching about how to save my MSN contact list and import it into another MSN account.
    all the options I found from google search saying that to go to the main list of MSN and "contact" and click "save contact list" but this option does not exist there all.. I have checked all other icon tools I did not see any of the options that lead to save/export contact list and how to import it again,

    is there any solution for this issue?
    will appreciate your kind assistance

    best regards

    Here is a youtube link on another way of doing it, be a bit patient there is a weird intro first. It's for MSN (actually MSN Live, but still work for you if you don't have MSN live)

    Yes, but the Last Line below on the Video screen there is an underlined Link "Watch on Youtube", when you click on that, it brings you to the Youtube Video site.

    log on your mail
    click on CONTACTS
    click on MESSENGER CONTACTS
    on the menu bar click on EXPORT CONTACTS
    a file will be created on C:/my documents

    once you want to import the contacts to another account just go to
    contacts
    messenger contacts
    IMPORT
    follow the steps given
