Recently I had a problem with accessing my contacts by clicking on people. It appears that when I sign in to my hotmail account it automatically shows outlook. All was fine then one day as I attempted to access my people the page went blank. Next day it was OK. Now for over a week the best I get it, only occasionally, a message saying there is no e mail to this e mail tadayadayada@hotmail.com - contact administrator or something like that.
Is there a way to get my contacts (people) back on my own? If not how do I contact the administrator or whoever at outlook (MSN)?

Thought I'd try a bump:

Hotmail no longer exists as an entity -- it has been rebranded as Outlook. However, users with @hotmail email addresses are grandfathered, and can retain that as an email address.

If you have a hotmail address, you can still use it as a valid address and send and receive email normally. So can all your correspondents who retain their old hotmail addresses. But all of them now function through the Outlook platform.

Thanks, but it seems like my address book of contacts (people) will not open. Is there a way to sync my hotmail contact list to people in outlook. It was at first operational but now it just stop working. Is is a tweek in outlook or possibly one on my computer in order to view and open people?

Aha -- I found it.

Open your Hotmail email page.
Click "New" (code for "compose a message")
Click "To", upper left, just above text entry field (code for "open contacts list").

This is the kind of user-friendly intuitive layout that made then so proud of the brand Hotmail that they changed it to another word, which had already been in use for and could be confused with a previous internet mail protocol, which everybody also hated, but then made everything worse in the belief that all change is good by definition.
