    For various legacy reasons I've ended up with two Hotmail accounts that I maintain. One of them has all my contacts in. This isn't a problem on WP8, or using full fat Outlook (2010) as they allow access to all contacts. But when at the PC I generally find using outlook.com faster than using Outlook, and although the accounts are linked, the contacts aren't shared.

    Is there any way to have both accounts see a single contact list, or do I have to export from one, import to the other and remember to update both as required?

    Outlook.com. Go to People > Manage > Export > Import the list under your "main" account.

    Thanks. I know I can export/import, but then I have to remember to keep the two accounts in sync when I add/update a contact in the future. I'd prefer a single source to be used by both - as WP and Outlook client will do.

    Really I want to be able to merge the accounts, but that's not possible, and WP doesn't allow you to control the Send As address.
