Windows 7: Importing mail from Outlook to Windows Live Mail

Hello Md69,

I'm sorry to hear that your folder structure was not maintained. When I did that my structure was maintained. I don't have any idea why it did not work for you. Good Luck

Windows Live Mail format

I got it to work with the subfolders now. The first time I chose to import "Windows Mail" format and the subfolder structure was gone. I tried again and chose "Windows Live Mail" format and they are all there now. Thanks again.

Massive thanks to dguy777.
I worked through his notes and they worked fine. I realised that we have customers who may struggle with this so made a stepby step guide on our site. Is this useful?

Windows 7 home premium 64 bit
 
 

My situation is a little different....is there help for me?

I put Windows7, Home Premium, 64bit on a new hard drive. I.installed Windows Live.

My old hard drive with Outlook Express is still connected to computer. I can access it by clicking "Computer" and selecting that hard drive. However, I can't run the programs, including Outlook Express. How do I import messages and addresses from Outlook Express to Windows Live?

I managed to find an Import button on Windows Live (although I can't even find that button now), & clicked "Import from Outlook Express." It asked me where to find it. I directed it to my old hard drive but it wouldn't accept that. I also tried old hard drive/documents & settings/my profile name/desktop....nothing worked.

Does anyone know what I should do? Is there any hope for me? I would deeply appreciate your help?

I changed from OE to Windows live several years ago, but don't remember exactly how I got my email transferred. I quickly gave up on Window Live and changed to Thunderbird.

But--memory tells me that OE email is stored in folders with a DBX extension. So you should go to your old hard drive and do a search for all files with a DBX extension. That will at least tell you where your old mail is.

Then maybe you can do the import directly from Windows Live?

I'm not a computer expert (obviously) and feel a little embarrassed to ask, but what is Thunderbird?

Thunderbird is a free email program developed by Mozilla. Anyone can download it and use it.

It can be made to look very much like Outlook Express. That's why I was attracted to it. I can't really recall why I gave up on Windows Live, but I did not like it.

You can get Thunderbird here:

I did a search and found it. Is it similar to Outlook Express?



We posted at the same time....never mind this question....you already answered it.

Thanks much ~
