Hotmail contact import - The selected file is emty


  • Hello!

    I tried to import my contacts into Windows Live Hotmail from Outlook, but it didn't work. From Outlook I exported my contacts to a CSV-file. I go step by step on the description on!6FEBCAD894536D1!5299.entry and when trying to import into Hotmail, there is always this error saying: "The selected file is emty. Please select another one" but when I open the CSV-file, all the 1200 contacts are in it.

    So, whats the problem with the import?
