Windows 7: exporting WLM data

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
exporting WLM data

Does anyone know how I'd export my all my accounts, messages, contacts etc from WLM to Mozilla Thunderbird please? It seems to give an option for the late lamented Outlook Express, but none for Windows Live Mail. Any help greatly appreciated.
