Hi, and thanks for using JustAnswer.com.

What is the email provider of your problem email account? For privacy purpose, please do not provide your full email address. Please tell me only the part after @, i.e. @hotmail.com, @yahoo.com, @aol.com, etc.

What program do you use for email, i.e. Windows Live Mail, Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, 2003, 2007, etc?

Can you go to your email Contacts option to delete your contacts?

Thanks,
-Viet

windows live mail

I can only delete one contact at a time

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 5 years ago.
Open your Windows Live Mail program (from Start, All programs, Windows Live Mail), then click on the Contacts book icon near the bottom left of the windows live mail program.

To delete multiple contacts, click on the first contact, then press & hold the Shift key and scroll down and select the last contact (or any other contact), then it will select all the contacts within the range, then you can delete them.

Also, you can press & hold the Ctrl key to select specific individual contacts to delete.

Please let me know if there is still any issue later. Thank you.

I clicked on the top contact then I held down the shift key and scrowled down. It does not highlight the other contacts.

You forgot one step,, after clicking on the top contact, then hold down the Shift key, then scroll down, then you have to click on another contact, such as the last contact. Then it will highlight other contacts. Now you can release the Shift key. Thank you.

I have been waiting for about 20 minutes for an answer from another tech about transfering my contacts from my IPhone to windows live mail.

Do you know how long I will have to wait?
