You could try a repair of WLM. Go to Programs and Features, highlight "Windows Live Essentials", click on change/uninstall at the top, and choose repair in the next window. All installed parts of WLE will be repaired, including Mail.

Transfer Email - Transfer Email From Thunderbird 3 To Windows Live Mail | Guide :

"Transferring contacts can be a challenge. Names and email addresses are pretty straight forward. The work involved in transferring other fields from one type of address book to another varies a lot. Examples of other field types are home and business addresses, telephone numbers and the like. Most email clients provide some sort of mapping tool to map fields from an import file to the natively used format. As a rule of thumb: the more exotic fields you have used the more work will be involved in mapping to your new address book."
