Exporting emails from windows mail and importing into outlook 2010

Hi there,

can anyone advise me the easiest way to export windows mail emails into outlook 2010?

Migrate from Outlook Express or Windows (Live) Mail to Outlook

Migrating from Outlook Express, Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail to Microsoft Office Outlook is a relatively easy process but there are a few things you should be aware of. It also makes a difference if Outlook is installed on the same machine or not. In addition to mail, this guide will also discuss how you can migrate your contacts and calendar.

In this guide;
- OE is used to refer to Outlook Express,
- WM is used to refer to Windows Mail,
- WLM is used to refer to Windows Live Mail,
- Outlook is used to refer to Microsoft Office Outlook.

The method of importing into windows live mail and then into outlook 2010 does not seem to have transferred all emails, had quite a few emails 9k and about 4k are missing??

Is there no software out there that helps with transferring windows mail to outlook?
