Hi, I couldn't send photos via email so I signed up for the WLM Account (thinking it might help - it didn't), I then realised I have lost all my contacts. I have closed the account which takes 60 days! Will I get my contacts back in 60 days, will I never see them again or are they hidden somewhere (I have been looking)? Please could someone advise.

In Windows Live Mail, first make sure you're in the Home tab then click the button on the far right of the Ribbon (which should be the one for your WLM account). Choose "Sign out of Windows Live Mail" and your old contacts that are stored locally on your PC should reappear.

Or, you could wait sixty days for your Microsoft account to be deleted but my suggestion above is usually quicker ;)
