    Anybody figure out how to hide contacts coming from your Microsoft Account? I can choose what's synced or shown from my @outlook.com. However, my main account @hotmail.com doesn't allow me to choose what's synced or hide those contacts. Although the FAQ says it can be done.

    People: Frequently asked questions - Microsoft Windows Help


    "Removing your Microsoft account (the account you use to sign in to Windows) is a different process. That account is required to use People, and removing it will remove all of your accounts from People, Mail, Calendar, and Messaging. You might want to hide those contacts instead of removing the account."

    Thanks in advance.

    Just got off Support chat with the Surface team. Currently contacts from your Microsoft Account can't be hidden or disabled. He said possibly an update later will allow this.

    I too tried to disable microsoft sync contacts and was unable

    I tried something not very smart - i deleted the server (contents) in the setting so they will not sync as a test
    Now im getting an error 80072EE7

    Was wondering if someone can post the server name here for me to reenter

    Server = s_______

    what steps did you take to get the server name? I'll grab it for you when I'm off.
