Hi James ,
Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.
From your issue description I understand that you want to access contacts in Windows Live mail in windows 8 computer.
To fix this issue you can follow these steps:
In order to access the emails from the Windows live mail you have to login to the mail apps using the windows live mail account, once you login to mail apps using the Windows live mail the contacts will sync with the people apps and you will be able to access the contacts in people apps.
For any Windows related assistance in the future, feel free to contact us and we will be glad to help.

Accessing Contacts in WLMail 2012 is the same in Windows 7 or 8.

Click on Contacts at the bottom of the folder pane or Ctrl + 3.

 

In a New mail window, click on To.

All 3 missed the mark. How do you get your windows live contacts into the windows 8 mail for use by Windows 8 mail? I think it has something to do with the people app but Windows Live is not one of the options in the People App nor is there a facility within Windows 8 Mail.
