Outlook 2010 pop3 Hotmail Account missing Contacts

Question: Outlook 2010 pop3 Hotmail Account missing Contacts

I recently loaded a pop3 Hotmail account to my Outlook 2010 since I was having problems with the MAPI Hotmail sending multiple copies of emails with large attachments. I am hoping the pop3 version will eliminate this problem; however, I can't seem to get the pop3 account to find my contacts and Contacts folder does not appear in the folder list. This is stressing my pea sized brain and I sure could use some help.

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2010 pop3 Hotmail Account missing Contacts

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all

I haven't discovered a way yet of switching a POP3 account to IMAP without deleting and re-defining the email account in Outlook 2010.

IMAP is a better way if you access the same email account from multiple machines. If the account was originally defined with POP3 there doesn't seem any mechanism to change it to IMAP without deleting and re-creating the entire account.

This means backing up and restoring all the messages, address books etc before doing this -- a bit of a pain if you have to do this for 50 - 100 users and their email accounts.

Any quick fix or have I missed something.

Cheers
jimbo

Answer:Outlook 2010 cannot change POP3 account to IMAP

You haven't missed anything, as far as I know there is no way to change pop to imap.

A bit of a warning though, in the past when I have switched users from pop to imap and I added the additional IMAP account then moved the stuff from the pop account folders to the IMAP, sometimes email etc just disappears completely despite saying it had copied.

Hi guys, as I am using both a laptop and tablet to check email I have set up both devices with imap accounts.

The issue is that I don't want to lose all my old folders and email from the old pop3 account and I can't find a way to move or copy them to the newly created account on my laptop so I'd like to leave the old account, inactive, in Outlook.

Also, I don't want to get messages into two different folders.

Is there a way to disable the old pop3 account without removing it?

I have tried deleting the password so it won't send/receive from that account but all I get is the constant "enter password" box which is naturally not an ideal state of affairs.

I'd appreciate any advice users can offer.

Thanks in advance,
Jo

PS it probably isn't relevant but FYI the tablet is a Motorola Xoom Android and the laptop is an Asus running Win 7 Home Premium and Outlook 2010 as in the subject line.

you can simply move the emails of your pop account by going to "edit" on the top left corner and "select all" you'll see that all your emails are selected, then right click and select "move to folder" and move it to your IMAP mails location. and doing this may allow you to remove the pop3 account.

either way, let us know what you get.

Answer:How to Synch. Outlook 2010 Mail & Contacts with Microsoft Account?

I solved it! One complication was that my Microsoft email address is personalised and doesn't end in .outlook.com. The procedure is:

Uninstall the Outlook Hotmail Connector since this no longer works.If your MS Outlook email address doesn't end in .outlook.com then you need to create an email alias online in your MS account which does end in .outlook.comAdd a new account using the account wizard using your MS Outlook email address ending in .outlook.com (which can be an alias)The account should configure quite quickly. You then have to restart Outlook 2010 and it will download and synchronise all emails, contacts etc.

I'm trying to configure hotmail as a pop3 server in outlook. I have Hotmail Plus (the $20 a year package) so I think this should work.

I can't find the server names for incoming and outgoing mail for hotmail (should be something like pop.hotmail.com or mail.hotmail.com or pop3hot.com or something, but no combination of guesses has worked). Does anyone know what server names to use? I just need this to configure Outlook 2007 to check hotmail with pop3 protocol.

My next idea was to forward my hotmail (my main account) to gmail and just access that with pop3, but I can't find a way to forward my hotmail account or to make my gmail account check my hotmail account, although hotmail easily allows me to retrieve mail from another pop3 server, and gmail easily allows me to forward my mail to another server, but that's the opposit of what I want to do.

my last straw would be to manually change every part of my virtual life to rely on my gmail account instead of my hotmail account, but that is very tedious and annoying. Any help? Thanks.

Hi all
I'm now configuring Outlook 2010.

Things like email I've never really paid much attention to since on my machines they always seem to "just work" (from OE==>OUTLOOK) and EVOLUTION on Linux.

However setting up an account on Outlook 2010 I've got a choice between IMAP or POP3. The ISP I'm using supplies both so what should I choose here.

I rang the ISP but got fed up with the endless dreary "Press X for options a.b.c.d", then another load of automated messages with another set of options again before probably being connected to some call centre in India / Bangladesh or wherever .


(If I was ever dictator of the planet my first act on day one would be to OUTLAW all these automated telephone systems and have HUMANS answering them --it would create loads of jobs too ).

So what should I choose. In the past I think POP3 was always the default and never given it a thought but I've seen IMAP mentioned a lot recently.

Anyone ?

Randomly we have issues at work were mail messages will get cut off mid sentence and the remaining part of the message will not be displayed. If we go to the Webmail interface for the mail account the whole message will be displayed there. So somewhere while it is being pulled down the whole message is not getting to Outlook. This problem will happen maybe once a week or once a month which makes it hard to track down.

We recently upgraded to Bit-Defender but we did not see the problem until about 2 weeks after installing the software. Looking for ideas on where to track this one down.

Hi,

I have used POP3 for all my mail on my outlook client since I first had email. With this method my multiple email accounts can be seen in a combined inbox on my windows pc.
I use IMAP to access the same accounts on my iPhone and iPad, so that I can get mail whilst travelling etc..

Up until very recently if I read an email on my IMAP accounts via my iPhone or my iPad the message would still download to my pop3 accounts on my windows client (I use my pc as the oracle and the apple products as tools). Now it appears that as soon as I read the message in IMAP the POP3 download no longer downloads the message?
I've tried marking "read" messages in the IMAP inbox "unread" in the hope that the POP3 access will download the message, this did not work. I'm now wondering what has changed with GMAIL (they altered their mail system recently), such that POP3 does not download all inbox messages that have not been downloaded to POP3 before?

If I try and search for this on the web, all I get is info about comparisons of IMAP and POP, which I understand.

If any one has any ideas that would be a great help.

cheers

Answer:Outlook 2010 and POP3 with IMAP from iPad Issue

Is it possible that when you read your emails on one of your programs that it is not leaving a copy on the GMail server. In other words once the email has been downloaded it is deleted from the server.
I use Outlook in Office 2013 & copies of emails are left on the server for 14 days, but this can be set to a period that suits you.
I do not use Gmail so I can't speak for it. Perhaps checking your Gmail server to see if you can reset the period of time copies of emails are left on their server.

Answer:Hotmail account sending out spam to my contacts list

Unless you are absolutely certain that the E-mail is actually coming from your computer, it would be more likely that someone else's computer is infected and the malware found your E-mail address there. And too, spammers often mask their stuff as if it came from an E-mail daemon, since most ISPS do not filter that address.

Main email account iin Outlook 2010 is POP3 with 50+ rules for distributing email into folders. Attempted to set up a secondary account which is an Exchange account. No rules needed for this account; volume will b v low.

Rules set up for the POP3 account are being applied to both the POP3 and Exchange accounts. Exchange account is rejecting rules and declaring them invalid. From main email menu in Outlook, going to Rules and then Manage Rules and Alerts, I can see that the rules are being applied to both accounts. I cannot see how to get rid of the Exchange account in Manage Rules and Alert.

I have dropped the Exchange account till I can get advice on this, and will have to restart set up of Exchange account but hopefully with some guidance on how to avoid over zealous application of rules beyond the POP3 account for which they are intended. My Hotmail account is unaffected.

Answer:How to change email account settings in outlook from IMAP to POP3?

Use Office Outlook on your desktop as your email app instead of windows 10 Mail-Outlook.com (formerly Hotmail) and select Office's Outlook as your default. The win 10 Mail app is for webmail and home user use. You might need it for your Microsoft webmail Account but use Office Outlook as your mail email program for POP mail. Office Outlook and Outlook.com are unrelated in spite of the recycled name.

It enfuriates me that when I want to write a new e-mail, only "Frequent Contacts" are displayed. With my bad memory, I need to see ALL my email contacts so as to be able to select ones I haven't emailed for some time.
Does anyone know how I can display all contacts (like it was before the "improvement"?

Answer:Outlook/Hotmail Contacts where are they?

John, just above the "Frequent Contacts" list there's a tiny blue "To" link. Left click on it once to display all your contacts. Left click on it again and it'll return to showing your frequent ones.

I exported contacts from OL 07 to a .pst file, and then added the .pst to OL03 on a new PC. the contacts came over fine, except that I had 1873 on my old PC (OL 07) and only 1825 on new one OL 03 --

why did the other 48 contacts not go with the pst? yes, they are recently added contacts that are missing.

OL 07 not connected to MS Exchange when I created PST, but is this a synch problem?

Thanks in advance!

I have had some success in further troubleshooting of Outlook 2003. The culprit with Outlook 2003 running very slow and swamping the system at 100% CPU usage is with one of the three email accounts I had set up with it.

I deleted the email account entirely, and now Outlook 2003 runs smooth as a whistle with very low CPU usage.

But does anybody know why all of a sudden that email account started messing up Outlook 2003? I tried adding it back as a new email account, but it keeps telling me the following error when I TEST THE SETTINGS:

Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Outlook could not connect to the incoming mail server (POP3). The problem could be your SSL or port settings for the incoming server. Verify your port and SSL settings under More Settings on the Advanced Tab.

I have done this, and called the folks who handle that email server to verify I have the correct settings, but still get the above error.

Also, when I attempt to re-add the email account, CPU usage climbs to above 50-60%, and Outlook 2003 no longer runs as smoothly.
 

Answer:Outlook 2003 - POP3 Email Account Stopped Working - CPU Usage Climbs

First, outlook is a good tool, but a poor choice for email. Consider using other software
such as Thunderbird.

All the data in Outlook (Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, and Email) is held in the single .PST file for each user;
the bigger it gets, the more time and cpu it takes to get into it.

As for the errors, it would appear that the settings are wrong.
The pop3 stuff is for reading your email from the ISP and the smtp is for sending;
each can be correct / incorrect.
You need the pop3 domain name (something like mail.domain.com or pop3.domain.com)
the correct port number (usually 110), AND
the proper login (secured or unsecured).

The sending side almost always requires a secured login on port 25.

Answer:Import Hotmail contacts into Outlook

This may or may not work,
1. First have the HotMail acct installed in your OE application. To do this follow instrucitons at this link
2. Than open up Address Book> TOOLS> Press Synchronize Now.
3. This will move contacts from the Address Book's Main Contact folder
(not any contacts in sub-folders that you have created) to the HotMail
Address Book, and visa versa. You will need to check both address books
for duplicate entries, and delete as necessary.

Hope it helps

Can you get back old Hotmail account, after having renamed it to new Outlook account?
Well here is Microsoft's answer on Reddit!

If you renamed your account, and want to rename it back to the original name, you can do that.
IMPORTANT: This may not work if you are outside of the US and have a "@live.com" or "@Hotmail.com" address!
First, remove the alias that was created when you renamed your account (the alias will be for the original name).
Go to http://account.live.com, select "Notifications" then "manage your email preferences" and you'll find links to remove aliases.
Second, go back to the Rename page, Sign In and rename back to the original name.

Hope it helps someone!

How do I need to set up my contacts so that I have one main folder with several sub folders sharing most of the same contacts. I want to be able to edit the contact information to any of the contacts from one folder and the corrections would take place to the contact in any of the other folders it may appear in. Is this possible in outlook? My database use to be in Access and it was a wonderful feature. I just can't believe that Outlook wouldn't have it.
 

Answer:Contacts Outlook 2010

Contacts will only appear on one place. If you have a contact named John Doe and it is filtered or categorized in multiple ways changing the contact once will change it everywhere. Do not duplicate contacts as there is no need to.

I've subscribed to Hotmail for email. The blurb from Microsoft suggests I can use Outlook as the front-end interface. Is this easy to setup? Can I download Outlook for free or is it already bundled in my XP Office suite (student edition)?Also, whether I use Outlook or the native Hotmail interface, I want to export my contacts from another pc (which uses Outlook) and import them into either Outlook or Hotmail on my new pc.

I recently purchased a new computer. I was successful in installing MS Office 2016 on my new computer. And I was successful in configuring my email account onto Outlook 2016. I even found out how to export my old contacts as a backup file from Outlook 2010 into a pst file and import that file into Outlook 2016. My calendars are finally synced up but how come I don't see any contacts in my new address book in Outlook 2016? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Outlook 2016 from Outlook 2010 Contacts

I also upgraded as you did.
When you open up your address book, it will have a dropdown for the Address book currently in use. It should say "Contacts - [email protected]" (whatever your email address is). I noticed mine was using the wrong email address, as I use more than one email address. I had to manually change it to where my contacts are actually saved.
These contacts are not available across email addresses. This is something I do not understand, and is extremely irritating to work with. However, it is the way it is, and I have sent my complaint to Microsoft about it. After all, I'm paying for it.
Hopefully, this helps you to locate your contacts.

My question is this: I see the folder with all of my contacts in it. How do I get those contacts back in Outlook 2007? I tried the import wizard, but it seems that there is no option for importing that format. I looked at the properties of one of the contacts and it is listed as a .contact format. What is that?

When using the "Find a Contact" search box in the 'Find' section in the ribbon, I'm not able to get any results. I have my contacts organized into contacts, vendors, architects, franchisees, etc. Within my contacts section, I have a distribution group for each job location, but no actual contacts. The only results it will return is a distribution list...no individual contacts are returned.

2. Unable to select contacts and organize distribution groups
When I open a distribution list and try to add a new contact, I'm only able to select our corporate address list (internal), my contacts folder (containing only distribution lists), and the stupid 'suggested contacts' list containing emails of people that i don't have organized because I don't need to keep their address)...no other lists are available.

I know from experience and tests, as well as a tracking facility I use that the email gets sent and received. However, it doesn't go to my sent mail folder. This means I have no way of referring to the content of that email in future which is a nuisance. This is never a problem when I am sending emails from the usual new emails section, but sometimes it is quicker to send some emails from within contacts where various bits of data reside. Can anyone help find emails that I have sent from within contacts?

Answer:which pst file stores the contacts in Outlook 2010

Contacts can be stored in EACH PST file that you use, so if you have multiple email accounts, each with its own PST, then you can have contacts in each PST file.

When adding a new contact (depending on how you add it), it will be stored in the Default data file (the one with the tick as you mentioned), or the one for the account you are using.,

If you look at the contacts on the bottom on the navigation pane (left), you will see several lists of contacts.

If each account shares a single PST file then all contacts will be in that PST file.

I use Windows 8.1 after updating some while ago from Windows 8. My contacts are important and after any phone or email contact I record key info within "Notes". A perfect electronic card index system which also syncs via Hotmail connector with my windows phone 8.1. I always knew there was a limit to how much data I could key into "Notes", possibly 1000 characters & maybe some other space limits. I used to get a message when the note was full and I would set up a "duplicate" contact record with Name-overflow.
However, I don't get any message when I've reached my limit and I type away and save it. Then say 2 months later part of what I've typed hasn't been saved. Has the limit been changed? Is it a 8.1 problem? Can anyone help or suggest I way over overcoming my problem, please?

Do you have iCloud Contact sync enabled on your iPhone. Note that if you do, iTunes will say that contacts were synced but like in your case, no contacts will appear within your Outlook. iCloud Contact sync and Outlook sync via iTunes do not go together.

You can alternatively export your iPhone contacts to outlook using third-party tools such as copytrans contacts:

Make sure to select the Outlook option once prompted during export.

I'm still on Outlook 2007 but you shouldn't have to copy and paste emails from the contacts. In the new mail window (form) are you clicking on To or CC which should open up your contacts list in a new little window.
Does it show in Outbox before it goes? Do people get them? You may have more than one sent folder eg sent items or sent.

ref. 33974158 - this is for my information only, please disregard.

Hello everyone,

I have stumbled upon really freakish issue with Outlook 2010.
Here's scenario:
My users are being migrated from XP machines with Office 2003 onto Widows 7 with Office 2010.
One particular person had a quite large amount of contacts (over 500) on his mail account. This seem to be stored on Exchange Server as they travelled across to new machine without any local migration.
Now, the problem is following:
Each contact had a business phone number and business mailing address (not electronic mail!) among lots of other details Outlook allows you to put down. Each contact also had an option marked under "Addresses" panel - "This is the mailing adress"
where next to it was written down address of given person.
When user is creating an e-mail and selects a recipient from his local address book instead of corporate one he can see a list of suggestions according to his search criteria. On this list we've seen person display name and other details, however in E-mail column there was a phone number. Seems to be pulled from field Business Phone number". When such person is selected his e-mail address shows correctly but if someone on the other end doubleclick on such contact he is able to see phone number. This is a big issue while mailing couple of people at the same time.
I've managed to narrow down the problem to this single field "This is the mailing adress&... Read more

About the time my husband left his old job we got our new Windows 7 laptop, purchased and installed Office 2010, including Outlook. Since his new job is in the same industry, he wanted to "bring home" his Outlook contacts. He exported his contacts at work (PST file) to a jump drive. I imported these to our new Outlook. Little did I realize just how many contacts he had!

As I am thinking about getting a new cell phone to sync with Outlook, I really don't want to carry around his business contacts with me! I think I will just save his PST file until he really needs it.

Now... how can I remove his contacts I imported? If necessary I could "empty" all my contacts (if that's possible to do) and re-export/re-import my personal contacts from my old laptop.

So glad to find this Windows 7 forum! Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks,
Lisa

Answer:Outlook 2010--Remove Imported Contacts?

Hi Lisa

Welcome to Seven Forums

You could try the following from Office Support:

Remove an address book

Click the File tab.
Click Account Settings, and then click Account Settings.

On the Address Books tab, click the address book that you want to remove, and then click Remove.

Hope this helps in some way

Regards

Hey everyone, My dad currently has a problem. He has hundreds of e-mails in his Outlook program but has only saved like 2% of all the e-mails to his proper contacts tab in the program. The rest he has just kept one email from them so that he can e-mail them back.

Now basically I have got to save all those email addresses from his emails and move them to his new Hotmail account. Any idea how to do this? I have no idea :/

Thanks in advance, Jack

Hello, I recently deleted a very old account in my co-worker's Outlook. There were no emails in the folder, and I thought it was safe to delete because it hasnt' been used in years. However, it seems that when I deleted this account it also deleted all her contacts! I would like to first know how to fix it (I left the old .pst file on her desktop, so perhaps it's as simple as putting it back in the Outlook folder), and second I'd like to know how/why the contacts were saving to an account that wasn't being used.

I had a problem with Outlook emails hanging up in the outbox and then sending as many as 14 copies of the same message. I was unable to fix this Using the "Repair" function of the upgrade installation disk (created from the downloaded file). I removed Office completely and tried to reload; however, my disk got corrupted and Outlook is no longer available. Is there a way to recover Outlook without having to purchase it separately? I am using Office Professional Plus 2010 Home Use Program. The email that came with the original download from Digital River states to go to the "Account Management Console" to reload; however, this is on a hard copy and the original email with the link is no longer available. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2010 missing from Office Professional Plus 2010

If you downloaded this from Digital River, then you may be able to download it again, contact them and ask.

If you can download the install file again and it works, burn yourself a CD of the downloaded install file.

Also write the keycode on the CD.

We're using Outlook 2010. Mailing addresses have disappeared from our main Contacts folder. Email addresses and phone numbers are still there, but not the mailing addresses. We have a separate Contacts list for Mailing Labels, and the addresses still show up there. Thank you for your help.

I have a Microsoft Account set up on the PC and on the phone and I have set up the Outlook Hotmail Connector function but the phone doesn't seem to pull the contacts and calendar through. The Microsoft Account Settings on the phone shows a 'Content to sync' checkbox for Email but not contacts or Calendar. Does this matter and how do I fix it?
Do I need to use a live.com or Outlook.com email address for the Microsoft Account? (I don't at the moment, I just use my normal email address).

Going round in circles and getting stuck! 1 You do not need to use a outlook.com or live.com email address for a Microsoft Account.
2 in the Microsoft account on your phone you only see the e-mail box because the calendar, contacts are automatically synced so you can not disable this. Only for your e-mail you can decide to sync or not to sync.
3 Now i am not sure what email you use for the outlook 2012 if this is the same as you use for the phone and pc the calendar and contacts should be synced. I you use a live.com or a outlook.com address for it then you could at this outlook.com/live.com account as separate "outlook account" on your phone (So not as a Microsoft Account because you only can use 1 Microsoft account on your phone)
4 If you use a live or outlook.com for outlook 2010 you also could use this as Microsoft Account.

I didn't see this posted before, so here goes. Outlook 2010 will create a new contacts list, called Suggested Contacts. If you have your contacts syncing to any smartphone, you'll notice all of these new contacts filling up your phone's contact list.

To disable it, follow the steps in this link:

I have an iPhone 3GS that syncs over-the-air with my Exchange server, and this annoyed the hell out of me.

This is a story of two computers. The old one is a Dell and the replacement is an HP (also old - but works fine).
My Dell desktop quit working recently. Discussions on a hardware forum indicated possible motherboard failure. The Dell had two hard drives. The C Drive with the OS (Win 7) and Office 2010 (email with Outlook 2010) and the D Drive with all my personal files.
To make sure I preserved the hard drives I obtained an adapter, took the hard drives out, read them both with my laptop, so both drives are fine.
I located a used HP desktop from which its hard drive had been removed. I hooked up my D Drive to the HP and installed Windows 7 and Office 2010. All of my personal files remained intact.
I set up Outlook 2010 which automatically found my two email accounts but my address book and contacts list did not appear.
I still have my Dell's C Drive hooked to my laptop. The C Drive from my old Dell still has the Windows 7 OS and Office 2010.
I've located two places on the C Drive that appear to have Outlook files:
Users - Me - AppData - Local - Microsoft - Outlook
Users - Me - AppData - Roaming - Microsoft - Outlook
I don't know how to read those files, I don't know if my address book and contents are in there and, if they are, I have no idea how to retrieve them.
Even if they aren't in those folders they've got to be somewhere on the drive that has the OS and Office.
What do I do next?
Thanks.

I am only using a Windows 10 system because my Windows 7 computer is sketchy and I need a reliable PC to work. I have Windows 10 up and running on a very fast system with a nice big new monitor. Migrating email to this PC is absolute hell. I can get Outlook 2010 setup with contacts imported and with email accounts. I cannot get it to receive email at all even though it shows the green check marks that it has successfully checked all accounts. I searched for answers to this and could not find any. I can live with this choice if I can get it to receive email and have it show up in the inbox.

Option 2, I have Mail and Calendar set up by I cannot get emails from WLM2012 into it nor can I get my contact list into it. I tried a work arount that said use my outlook.com account to import contact list to Microsoft. I don't have an Outlook.com account.

Anyone got instructions either on how to successfully get Outlook 2010 receiving email or how to get contact lists into Mail and Calendar? Microsoft is making me so livid right now. I lose money when this crap doesn't work.

I'm installing Win 10 Pro Ver 1607 on a computer that previously ran Win 7 Pro. I installed Office 2010, including Outlook, and tried to import my contacts from a CSV file that I had created on another computer. After importing, there are no records in Contacts, and the import seems to be running for the last 2-3 hours (a bar of red lights keeps going across the screen when the Contacts window is open).  I cannot stop this import. So I have gone as far as uninstalling and reinstalling Office. When I reinstalled Office (including Outlook), the program appeared to find the Account Settings that I had created previously, and I did not have to recreate the accounts.  Further, despite reinstalling (which involved a couple of reboots), the Outlook Contacts import process keeps on running.
How can I stop it?
Thanks.

Answer:Outlook 2010 importing contacts from CSV file keeps running

Well I got it to stop by doing a system restore, even though I got an error message when I ran the restore.
 
Hopefully, I'll be able to import the contacts using a new CSV file.

Outlook 2010 has a weird behaviour.
About half of my personal contacts are listed in separated folders, although it should be a single "personal" file.
The indication reads "company none" (14 in one 28 in another)
I have no idea how to correct that, so I sort on telephone-numbers.
But that mixes up personal en company, which I prefer separated.

The same weird ting is about any company listed in a single phrase, instead of just a list of companies.

There is no way to merge them in a single folder. (Company or Personal)

If you for instance type something in the company-field, Outlook moves it to the company list.
If however you remove that company information, the contact is moved to the second personal file instead of the primary original personal list.

So why are their two files of the same thing "company none"?

If I ad a new contact it will be added to the second list "company none"?

I've done something odd to solve it.
Opened up every personal contact in sequence.
Added a random character in the company field, saved it, opened again and removed that character.
Than saved it and it was stored in the second personal (company none) list.
So with all the others and now it is one file as it should be.
No more "Company none" double folder.

But still, why is every company address listed as "company (1 item)" ?
