msn deleted my contact list

Posted on July 3, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I don’t use msn at all any more really — but I just decided to log on and my entire contact list was gone! Empty! Reminiscient of the time I went into my gmail and any email sent from Sept 2005 – the current date (this was about 6 months ago now) was gone. Not archived — just gone. Some important messages. I’m all for purging and weeding things out, but on my own time thank you very much. I’m not impressed.

use msn 7.5

If only I had highspeed with which to download a new product. Oh well. I re-added the names, though some are now lost in the mysts of time. Thanks for the tip!

i lost my contact list at msn

where did my contact list go from my facebook friends. It’s not the same

will anyone tell me how to recover it?

Maybe if you sign into hotmail and re-export your list? Or re-import from MSN? I haven’t tried either, but I just noticed that hotmail was “reserving an account” for me — even though I’ve had one for years — probably because I don’t use it very often, if ever.

The same happened to me. I activly use MSN. But suddenly all contacts was gone! I dont know how to get it all back. And when I start adding people they appear twice! Strange.

Same thing happened to me. All of a sudden…no email contact list. Have NO idea where it went. Let me know if you were able to recover…jonel3709@msn.com Thanks JAM

yeap, same here, signed in and contact list was gone… how to fix it?

Mine is gone too. October 6th with MSN 7.5 . Its GREAT to know it isnt just me and that it isnt my fault or no one hacked me.

Hey, i signed into my msn on a friends laptop..and everyone on my contact list had vanished. so i tried again at home and for a second the contacts all were there..but disappeared again a second later.. if anyone knows whats happening and how to fix it. please message me at nate-n@hotmail.com and let me know how to recover my list..cause theres people that i knew from back in the day. and the only way we keep in touch is with msn.

Depending on how you deleted them, yes. If you click the Tools menu, then Options, then
Privacy tab, you should see them all in the Allow/Blocked lists. Simply right-click each and
choose “Add to Contacts.

YOU ARE A MIRACLE WORKER. that solved my problem. i checked msn one day to find out there were no contacts, and there was message saying ”you have no contacts yet”. I was freaking out then I saw this and went to allow/block list and added everyone again.

thx vry muxt m8 that was the fix to my problem now i am safe and nice ^^ good info and ez way

Your Awesome!!! thanx!!! ^__^

No man, same thing is happening to me too. It’s suspect. I did the options -> privacy -> add to list thing and it says that everyone is added to my list but they don’t show up on my screen. And when I add them manually everyone is shown offline (even when I confirm over the phone that they are online). It’s all fishy.

Also at work, my contact list is intact and everyone is online.

send answers to philly_montana@excite.com.

I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I use MSN messenger live. Only half of my contacts have been deleted, and i get constant errors when i try to log on. Anyone share my symptoms?

1. On the taskbar, right-click Start, and then select Explore.
2. In the folder list on the left-hand pane, navigate to the folder C:\Documents and Settings\Your Windows logon name\Contacts\Your Messenger email address.
3. Delete all of the files within the folder Your Messenger email address.
4. In the folder list on the left-hand pane, navigate to the folder C:\Documents and Settings\Your Windows logon name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts\Your Messenger email address.
5. In the Your Messenger email address folder, delete the real and shadow folders.
6. Close Windows Explorer and try to sign in to Messenger again.

how i can delete all my contact list

can I delete myself from another person’s msn messenger contact list?

All my contact were gone along with important emails I had saved when I logged on. I have tried everything I know trying to retrieve contacts list and emails that disappeared. Please help. I tried tools, then privacy and after that I’m lost. I see no choice for the add on?

Same thing happened to me this morning. Logged on and BOOM everything wiped out.

I normally use Yahoo Mail. I suggest everyone start doing that.

I use gmail chat. You don’t have to download anything which makes it much more user-friendly.

I downloaded msn Mgr and i found my contact list gone.
Please Help Me to get it back!!!!

use a open source app, its called ‘aMSN’
its free and works on windows as well as linux AND NO ADS

How can I get back my contacts

how do i get all my msn contacts back cuz i went on msn and there all gone so i carnt tlk 2 anyone :@

I managed to get mine all back by going onto Options – Privacy, then selecting all and right clicking, then clicking Add To Contacts…

Hope this helps :)

perhaps try options, privacy the list should contain every contact youve ever had!

Ok, I’ve got the same problem Phil has as well – its not that the contacts are GONE – its just that I can’t see them. Let me explain:

For quite some time, whenever I logged into MSN, all my contacts appeared offline – even if I made a phone-check that they were online.

And then, all of a sudden, my contacts list disappeared.
I don’t mean to say that my CONTACTS disappeared, that I have a blank column under the contact-search bar, or that my “friends” and similar groups are empty. I mean to say that the whole CONTACTLIST is gone – including the search bar and the group-headings.

On my screen, there is only the top and bottom wallpaper (including my username, the “status” and the “share a quick message” tab, and in between, the little screen that says “whats new”. Nothing else. I can’t even look contacts up.

Yet, they are still there; if I do the options -> privacy -> add to list thing, they are all already listed as “added”. Also, if I click on Contacts -> edit contacts, I can see all of them (funnily including their status). I just can’t contact them, because on that menu, you can only edit, not contact. I’m also failing at getting that list back on my screen in any way…

Except using a different computer. If I do that, everything’s back to normal…

So, if anyone is ready to help, that would be absolutely amazing…

I have the same problem! I only signed out for about 4 hours and when I get back, everything is white, confusing.

Nevermind! Mine was ok after I exited msn, then restarted.

Yooo yooo!

Actually my hotmail acount was expired, but i have many contacts in my msn list. Now i have made the same id and i want to need my old contacts again.

hi Oli, a million thanks! finally my contact list are all back via the privacy tab action adding one by one back! anyone has any idea what exactly resulted in that so that we can best avoid the issue again?!

THE BEST SOLUTION !!!

use msn messenger 8.5

Hi I wonder if anyone can help me too. Way back in 2003 my home PC died on me so I was accessing Hotmail in the public library – my back ups had all been on my home PC! I didn’t log in to Hotmail for probably a month, so when I next logged in I got a message saying to upgrade to the paid-for account, which I did, but then found all my contacts, emails and photos were gone. My entire account was empty! That account has now expired but I really need those old email addresses. Does anyone know if there is any way to recover my email contacts from an expired account? I would be grateful for any advice you can offer, thank you in advance,

-Lily
