I found the following assertion in a forum, this statement is dated March 31 2011, currently,can use contacts for authentication in the free version of microsoft?

There are no "web login name" and "web login password" attributes - did you upgrade from another solution?
If you are looking to use contacts for authentication instead of Live ID, this functionality is not included in the free Microsoft portals, but is included in the commercial edition available from Adxstudio. Please refer to this page to see all of the additional functionality availble in the commercial version:

The assertion is correct.  The free portals do not include a contact membership provider.  That is one of the many features that are included in the commercial version of the portals offered from Adxstudio.
