THis I hope has a simple solution... I have been using outlook for a couple of months synced to my hotmail account.
I got a new email account with a domain I created and changed the settings to direct to it... so my contacts have disappeared. I spent hours sorting the contacts and don't want to lose them. I have re-created another outlook profile linked to the hotmail account again and the emails are synced again but the contacts did not come back with the sorting and categorization or additions by the looks of it.
