Gmail Contact list Send NOT save help.

Q: Gmail Contact list Send NOT save help.

When I compose a new email in GMAIL I open my contacts list to check who to send to..............it puts a check mark next to the name but at the bottom I no longer have the SEND box option. All I have is a box with SEND AS GROUP and then the option to NAME the group.

Can you help me get back my option box to SEND the contacts I have selected?


I am using CHROME browser and Windows Vista.

My computer may have been hacked or picked up some kind of virus. Some of the people on my contact list have received emails with nothing in the subject line that were sent from my computer. They contain a link selling viagra and cialis. I have changed my password twice in case I was being hacked but it continues to happen. I have the free version of Avast virus protection and I have run it but it found nothing. How can I stop this? Please help!

A:My Email Send Spam to my contact list

guys.. any help please?

Read other 2 answers

Someone installed Windows Live Mail on a new (used) computer, then imported my contact file (.cvs format) from my old computer where I was using Vista 64bit. This was done from within windows live mail option.

The import works but every time I reboot the contacts disappear from Windows Live Mail and I have to import again which takes hours.

I tried importing via hotmail page but it keeps timing out.



A:Windows Live Mail Contact List (.cvs) will not save

This is a common problem,

You will have to "add" those contacts manually afetr performing an import.

To do this,

Click on Tools > Options > then click on Privacy,

In the Contact Lists Menu click View
Right click on each contact and click add.

Computer: Dell Inspiron 6000 with 1.5 GHz Pentium M processor and 2 GB of RAM.

Windows version: XP/Pro SP 3 (V. 5.1 Build 2600.xpsp.080413-21111 : SP 3)

Word 2002

I exported my contacts list from Gmail, using "Outlook's CSV format (for importing into Outlook or other applications)." The file name is contacts.csv, and has 156 names in it--only a few have physical addresses.

This is the sequence I use for the mail merge:

Open Word

Start with New Blank Document

Tools/Letters and Mailings/Mail Merge Wizard

The Task Pane opens and the Mail Merge toolbar is displayed. From the Task Pane:

Step 1: Document type = Labels

Step 2: Change document layout/Label options/8462 Address

Step 3: Use an existing list/Browse to contacts.csv. Double click on contacts.csv. Default = Select all. Click OK.

Step 4: Using Insert Merge Fields tool on Mail Merge toolbar, insert Name and Business Address/Update all labels.

Step 5: Instead of 156 labels, I get 156 pages, with many duplicate labels for each name. If your question is, why am I trying to create address labels for contacts without physical addresses, I can only say that I was trying to learn how to do a mail merge with the exported Gmail contacts list. But, if I wanted labels with only names (say name tags or file folder labels), the steps I used will also create many excess labels (I tried using just the Name field in step 4--same result).

If, at step 3, I click on the Business Address field and select nonblanks. ... Read more

A:Word Mail Merge with exported Gmail contact list

Here is an update. I created a new recipients list while using the Word Mail Merge feature, with 3 entries. If use that list for letters, I get 3 letters. If I use that list for labels, I get 3 pages of labels, with duplicates.

I created a new recipients list using Excel with 25 entries (this list is completely independent of the list of Gmail contacts) and saved it as a csv file. If I use that list for labels, whether using the Word label feature or the Word Mail Merge feature, I get 25 pages of labels, with many duplicates.

My conclusion is that there is a problem with the Word (at least Word 2002) label and/or mail merge to labels features, and that the problem is not operator error.

I've tried searching everywhere, & I cannot find a solution to this problem.  I have a contact who shows up in my Chat list on the left of my Gmail, who I would like to remove.  He has two e-mail addresses, one gmail, the other is @una.edu (his college address).  I've tried deleting him entirely, but the latter address still shows up in my Gmail Chat list, to my frustration.  He never uses that address anymore, so I desperately want to unclutter the list by taking it off.  There is no option to block, remove, or set it to "never show", so I'm coming here for help.  Hope you all can help me out!

I use MSN e-mail (which now calls itself Windows Live Hotmail). I added 3 new names to my contact list (which is part of that system) this morning and sent one e-mail. Everything was O.K. I started a second new e-mail, clicked on the "To" button to go to the contact list, and only the three new names are there! I cannot think of anything I did different than the hundreds of other times I added names. Where did my contact list go and how can I get it back?

We only allow the names in our contact list to reach the in-box, so there are hundreds of names that will take years to replace. Panick time! Can anybody help?

Hi -
I am transitioning my cousin's email from aol to outlook. I have everything set up but I am running into problems with importing his contact list. I copied all of his contacts from aol and put them in an excel file that follows the proper format that outlook requires. I was able to import 214 records but I can't import any others. I don't get any error message - but the contact list stays at 214. I thought it might be because there's a limit to the number of contacts that can be imported at once so I made smaller lists but that's not the issue. I also thought one of the fields might be wonky and that's why the list stops at 214 but I triple checked...

Another issue/symptom is that when I try adding a contact manually via the quick add contact option it gets stuck when I try filling in a contact's email address - it beeps with each keystroke and doesn't register anything - nothing gets filled in.

His computer is running windows xp and has office 2003 installed.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

A:Windows contact list

Only guessing here, for although I certainly use Windows 7 & Outlook 2007, I haven't used Outlook Express since 1997 so I've never had to transfer any data from it. Transferring from/to Outlook is just so much easier than transferring any data from Outlook Express (which is why I stopped using it).

Try this:

1. Open Outlook
2. Click 'Tools' >> 'Address Book'

Is your imported stuff in there?

I just got caught with the scam that forwards itself to every name in my contact list. It all happened in a space of about 90 seconds. Had no idea the video my friend sent me was "funny" Iimmediately alerted everyone not to open mail from me that did not have something personal in the subject line. One of them asked if the scheme to start your contact list with [email protected] would stop this kind of thing. I didn't know. Would it?

Well, a program wouldn't be able to tell if the contact "[email protected]" was a real one or not. So it would continue down the list and use all addresses.

I got a new laptop with Vista about 3 weeks ago. I started out using the Windows Mail that came with Vista - imported my address book from OE with no problem.

Then I decided to "upgrade" to Windows Live Mail - and I lost most of my contacts.

I went back to the old laptop and tried to directly upload my OE address book to WLM but was told there was a limit of 1500 contacts. I have over 5000.

So - I exported in csv file and am trying to import but it has been running for over 12 hours and isn't even half done.

I am afraid that even after it does complete - as soon as is syncs with Live - I will lose those contacts again - does anyone know if I will?

Also - I know there are a lot of duplicate entries in my address book and addresses I am sure I don't need - is there any utility out there that will help clean it out? I found some for Outlook but didn't know if they would apply to OE.

There might be something corrupted in your files that's causing the contact lists to load differently, try uninstalling and reinstalling. Let me know if that helps.

The contacts I have on my MSN contact list have a habit of changing their nicks (display names) frequently. As such, to find out who the person behind a nick is, I have to hover my mouse over the display name to view his email address, then rack my brains to think who that email address belongs to.

Is there any way to display some fixed names that I set for each contact in addition to their ever-changing display names?

Suggestions only :
Before anything, run a full virus scan on your computer. Then........

1. Do a system restore. Pick the date when all your contacts were present as your restore point.
System Restore - disk space

2. Go to your webmail site > logon to your account > find if your contact list is intact there.

What's going on with my wife & I's Contact List???? We have seperate accounts on our computer (Win7 O/S and Live Mail) and names (contacts) in her list are suddenly showing up in my list and vice versa. Some names are showing up twice in both lists. I delete names from her list and 2 days later (or sooner) they are back again.

A:Contact List corrupted

If you are both signing in (either manually or automatically) with the WLM email client (at different times, of course) then you are each seeing your respective "signed-in" contact list. You can also view those lists at the website "contacts.live.com" (even with WLM closed) using your browser; you will only see the list that corresponds to the login used on the browser at that time.

If OTOH you use WLM w/o signing in then WLM will display it's one and only "not-signed-in" contact list.

So if two of you are using WLM there are a total of 3 contact lists visible in the client but only one can be seen at a time:
1) Your "signed-in" contact list (duplicated on your contacts.live.com)

Hi All,

I have a problem and thought I would see if anyone had some smart solutions. I am starting a small company and want to send out info to newly registered companies in the UK. All of the info is available free of charge on the companies house website


Would there be anyway of developing a tool that would scan the companies house site for new companies and automatically update a spreadsheet with newly registered company details? i.e NAME, ADDRESS, SIC code.

I dont have a lot of money but do not mind investing some if required?

I've tried this problem on the Internet & Networking site and have had no replies. So I'm hoping to make contact on this site Can anyone help I wonder. I have loads of jokes, notices and anecdotes sent to me by friends. On my email page, I had until recently, a list of all my contacts running down the left hand side so that I could pass them on where appropriate. The list has gone from the screen ,so that now I have to look for addresses separately. I've tried everything to bring it back without success.:confused :thanks for reading this

Hi coshn,

You should also be able to access Import or Export using the File menu within Windows Mail, outside of the Contacts window.

See if this helps bring back the Import and Export option on the Contacts toolbar.

Open the Contacts window; Right click a blank area in the Right pane.

Customize this folder > Customize tab. Click the drop down arrow and select: Contacts.

Apply, OK to save and close.

Also, here is the link from Microsoft article:
Import, export, or change the format for contacts

Please perform the steps mentioned above and post the results.

I have just installed a new pc with windows 8.

All is fine except that I cannot find the location of the email contacts folder.

My older system used vista and I know where CONTACTS was stored, but it seems to be different in win 8 ?

How can I transfer the contacts folder which is backed up on a Easus Todo backup system ?

Hi everybody

Excuse my less then perfect English..

I have a (weird) problem with msn messenger. Most people know that it's possible to see wehter you have been removed from a contact's list in messenger. By going to options and then privacy, it's possible to see your blocked and accepted contacts. When right clicking a certain contact it either does or does not give the possibility to delete the contact. If the contact can be deleted, that contact has removed you from their list. If a contact can't be deleted, that contact still has you in their list.

Now, my problem concerns a contact, which I have regular chat sessions with. I KNOW that I am still in their list, yet messenger gives me the possibility of removing them (under options->privacy). Does anyone know what the reason might be and how I can fix this problem? There should be a way to update the acceptance list and make msn recognize that this contact has me in their list..

I'd appreciate help, this has been bugging me for a whule now.. Thanks in advance

I am using Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail for my emails. Whenever I run the deep clean option of my Advaced System Care program, it erases my contact list and I have to go back and re-enter the contacts. I would like to copy the file of Contacts elsewhere first so I would be able to copy it back after doing the Deep Care, but cannot find where it is stored. Kinda like the old .wab file I used to have.

Aplogies if this has been posted before but I can't find it.
I did a new install to windows 7 without too many problems but I am having problems with my email contacts list. I am using firefox to access my email but what used to happen is when I used to put the first letter or two of the address it would give me a drop down list to choose from. This now doesn't happen and I have to go into my address book which is as pain because the addresses aren't in alphabetical order. I have also lost my skins. About 3 weeks ago both of these things came back but only for a couple of hours and had disappeared when I next used my computer (very strange but true)
Can anyone offer any help with this annoying problem?

Hello Kate,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you are using Firefox to access you mail, it may be that you need to clear the temporary or cached files. See if things straighten out then.

Hope this helps.
