after the update all my email contacts have disappeared. How do I get them back?
I will be just as specific as you are.
Get them back from your email provider.
I think what Comp means is that your contacts are held on your e-mail server & so will be available if you access your e-mail account via your provider? I only use web based e-mail, so I'm used to managing my contacts' list vis my provider's website.
So you shouldn't have lost anything in the recent update.
"I use the Windows 10 built in email" - o/k but it's still not clear who your e-mail provider is? Even if you use an e-mail app such as the bundled W10 one, it still has to download your e-mails from an e-mail server somewhere.
Years ago when I used MS Outlook, it would download my e-mails from my Freeserve account but I also had the choice of logging into my account there & accessing the same e-mails on their site.
Can't you do that?
I have Comcast email. I can use that account. I'm still annoyed that the Aug. update lost my contacts in the People app. I find the windows 10 email very easy and quick to use. When I originally had set it up I imported my contacts into the People app and now had to do that again. Thanks for your help.
