    I had my freind email a bunch of v card contacts to me from my old computer that I gave to him.

    I loaded the contacts into my new computer and they work fine under my user account. By work fine I mean they appear when I click the "contacts" icon in Winodows Mail and when I click the "to:" icon when composing new mail.

    Unfortunately the contacts do not show up under my fathers account. They appear when clicking the "contacts" icon but they do not show up when I click the "to:" icon when composing mail.

    How do I get them to show up when clicking the to: icon in my fathers account?

    I guess I should have researched a a bit more before posting.

    After I loaded the contacts onto my account I sent them via email to my dads account. After attaching the contacts then clicking send, I was asked If I wanted to change the contacts to vcards (apparently these are smaller then the format the contacts where originally sent to me in which was .csv) I did change them to vcards and windows apparently did not like this beacuase they did not appear in the Windows Mail.

    I re-emailed them to him and this time did not change them to vcards (they still went through immediately) and now they work just fine in my fathers account.
