My grandson thought he would "help" when I was adding several contacts. Unfortunately, he got rid of all of them. Fortunately, I do have a hidden copy, but not sure how to get all of them into Gmail? Grateful for help....and no, I HAVEN'T killed the little lad. YET

How are you accessing your Gmail account, web mail or through an e mail client such as Outlook express or windows mail?

Actually, I wouldn't mind going back to Outlook Express, now you mention it, but I cannot get the right setup.Incoming is ok, but outgoing does not work, whatever parameters I try to set
