Windows 7 live mail export to import to XP WLM

I am very pissed off riight now,

I backed my mother's stuff off to a thumb drive

BLUE BUTTON ( this this pc is win 7 )

export >> messages

then I went to her new pc with XP:

I clicked File > Import > Windows Live Mail Msgs

pointed it to the thumb drive

BOOM nothing I backed up showed up in WLM for XP

I had all of her emails stored up under her account and it didnt take why is that?

Where are emails suppose to be saved?

Thanks,
Christopher

If you exported them to the thumb drive using the export option and then import them with the import option it should work. (I admit I haven't tried moving emails from the 2011 version on Windows 7 to the 2009 version on XP.)

HI Ron,

I did that and they were up under mom's account and they were not there but if you go to the screen that says ALL FOLDERS or SELECT FOLDERS I did Select and boom they were there.....

Whenever you import messages they show up under the Storage Folders.
