Does anyone out there know how to undelete a msn contact list (3 email addresses), that I accidentially deleted??? I need to restore/reinstate my msn contact list to what it was before I "supidly" deleted it, & I want to be able to restore these contacts without having to re-invite them again. If they knew I deleted them, they might not want me to invite them back because they are European contacts & don't understand many things when I try to translate from English to their language. In other words, they might get the wrong translation/impression if I had to explain what I did...it's easier for me in this instance NOT to have to explain. So I'm hoping someone out there can help me. I've tried to contact MSN, but their help desk has been closed. Any suggestions?? Thanx!
You can restore your contacts you deleted and add them again on your Msn account, Just follow these steps:
Go on Tools on Messenger then select options,
Then Click on Privacy on your left, you will see Block list on your Right,
Select the Contacts addresses you want to get back to your account, right click and select add to contacts.
Then Click OK to save your settings
From now you will be able to chat with the ones you deleted!!
come on people stop being a bunch of idiots. She deleted them not blocked them for gods sake. I'v done the same thing so far its been basicly impossible to re-add them since wdows live prevents you from re-adding an email adress that you have previously entered. Going to privacy only lets you unblock contacts you have blocked. As far as I know the only way to re-add a contact is to change the coding in windows messenger to allow you to enter the same email as many times as you like without it blocking you from entering it again
I thank you very much for your suggestion, but I think you were giving me instructions for "unblocking" emails. This is not what I want to do, as I never blocked them. What I did do was, I hit the delete button which removed the 3 email addresses from my contact list AND deleted them from my network. I want to restore my "live" msn contact with these people without having to send an invitation to them (again), since they would be offended if they new I deleted them (by accident) in the first place. So if you can help me with this, I would be eternally grateful. Thank you once again.
Please help. I do not want to restore blocked contacts on Messenger. I just deleted all of my Hotmail contacts (A through I) inadvertently. I desperately need to get them back into my HOTMAIL email contact list. Can you help?
If you want to undo deleting a contact just go into tools -> options -> privacy and find the contact's email in the ALLOW list on the left. Right click and add. If you deleted without blocking then you will still find the contact's email in your allow list.
