The ability to add, edit and delete contacts in the "Outlook" app
Have a contact within Outlook.com that was taken from a corporate email system when created. The contact cannot be deleted. The Personal e-mail address appears to be an X400 format. when selected the "Delete" and "Edit" button disappear. For some reason the system recognizes that the e-mail; is in the incorrect format but will not let the user delete it.
Reinstate the option to add a new contact to one of my already established "lists" - groups. Where did the "lists" go? It WAS to the right of "delete" --- "new" - Manage - edit - delete - LISTS ----Why do you keep changing this - Where is the option to add a new contact to one of my lists??? -- Also HOW do I delete someone from one of my lists? I deleted the entry in my contacts, but it still is in my "list" (group)!!!
PLEASE HELP ME ----I HAVE REQUESTED THIS INFORMATION PREVIOUSLY--- I find your service terrible and your program as well - - will try to find one which works!!!
I have many spurious contacts that have accumulated over the last few years of apps making decisions that certain details should get into my contact list.
I was looking through them and selecting those I wanted to delete. Some times I want to verify the "content" before deleting the contact, but you can either select or view, not in between. If you would display the last selected contacts, detail automatically, by itself it will save me a big slog to work though a long list of contacts to determine which I want to delete one at a time.

I want to delete a single incorrect email address from among several addresses for one of the people in my contacts. In Edit mode I can't delete or even correct it. How can I a delete it?
where and how do I add a list of contacts to my email fille??
Hello, I am having trouble with Outlook.com. I cannot remove members of List. I can delete then from my contacts but they stay in a List when I email to a list. Please help. email@example.com

Please do, Outlook, provide a function to delete unwanted or outdated email addresses in contacts!! I can add a new, but the old will not delete, so your "system" retains an error!

Your help section does not, in fact, help as it always suggests to try again later!
Don't sync mail contacts with my phone contacts as the latter have no email addresses attached!
When forwarding via bcc put the box containing the contacts'details higher up on the page.
In 'People' put a 'delete'icon there as I have 'people' I don't want there, but unable to delete!
Allow us to delete all our contacts easily. This system is terrible! Allow us to delete our accounts easily! All hotmail has been hacked and I want my account closed.

1. I select people
2. I select a name
3. the list with edit disappears
4. the contact appears with the emails addresses and for me to send an email
P.S. When I cvould edit, the app would not let me delete one of the email addresses

I do not have my contacts in Outlook Mail. Why is there not a file to put my contacts in.

How about fixing the email fields in the Outlook People files. Time and time again I have gone into a person's file to get rid of a bad email address, and even after deleting it, it still shows up as a possibility in emails I am sending.
Today, I went in to People file to change an email address to something invalid so it won't get emailed, and there were two Personal email boxes. I changed the first one, but the second one, which had the same email address in it, could not be changed.
This has been going on for several years now. Am I the only one having this infuriating problem?

I have a suggestion. It seems that the edit tool for Contacts is not working as well as it did before this upgrade. When editing a contact, an email that was deleted and replaced for a person in the contact list and then saved was done. Now, I edit a contact and delete an email address that is no longer used and I save the change. But when I try and create a new email the old address still shows and many times it is the default choice and I can't get to the new, edited, address. I go to the contact and the information is correct as changed, but I go back to the email and the old one is still there. Also in groups that I make to help when sending out a group email, the old emails show up on edited contacts as well as facebook addresses and the actual email address. Very confusing and then I get undeliverable notifications on the old outdated addresses. Please correct

Make it easier to add contacts.

It is difficult to manage contacts, edit or delete, would be nice if it was simplified. thanks
I need to delete all my contacts to start afresh, but it wouldn't let me. :(
I want to EDIT A CONTACT, but that option won't come up on this particular contact. WHY?
I cannot delete old email addresses from outlook express and their not even listed on my contact list. I even bought a new computer. No other choice but to use AOL and Gmail and cancel msn....firstname.lastname@example.org
