Specs: windows 10, intel i5
Hello all, got my new dell computer, trying to set it up proving a little difficult.

Can you answer a few questions. Tried to find what email client in About, does not tell me. (used to windows live) Cannot find how to Import contacts, email messages etc, any ideas. Is there another email client i could use that allows me to Import saved contacts, emails etc???

Also, using the Microsoft Edge, how do I Import favourites.

Thanks, Gep

With webmail becoming more prevalent, local email clients are becoming a thing of the past. If you still want one, switch to Thunderbird

Hello Tra, read it, tried it, above my pay grade, thanks anyway, do it manually. Don't make it easy like the old days. Now to try and import fans into Edge, thanks, Gep

If that was too difficult, then you probably need to switch to a webmail service. Microsoft killed off any local email client in years past (i.e....Outlook, Outlook Express, Live Mail), and pretty much forced users into the online Outlook app...

Thunderbird is very simple to setup. It almost talks you through it; and you can have several email addresses being accessed by it.

Are you running the latest version of Win10 - 20H2? And the latest version of Edge - v88.0.705.50?

Open Edge, click the 3 dots in the upper right corner ( ... )
Click Favorites, then click the 3 dots in the upper right of that menu.
Click Import.
