Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.

I am very sorry about your issues. After installing the update to Outlook 13, did you need to ADD your email account back? Or everything was already there except the contacts?

Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.

Best regards,
Jess
