Windows 7: Archiving emails from Windows Live Mail on Windows 7

Archiving emails from Windows Live Mail on Windows 7

I am trying to resolve an issue with Windows Live Mail for someone who hase a large number of emails that they need to keep, and WLM is complaining that the mail box is full. I assumed that they would be able to archive (in a similar way that Outlook could), but I see from earlier threads that this seems not to be the case. Is this still so?

If there is a limit (practical or otherwise) on the the number of mails that WLM can cope with, I cannot believe that Microsoft did not provide a means of dealing with this automatically, short of manually moving them!! Has anyone got any suggestions on how to do this automatically, based on date (or some such mechanism)?

Why not do this Export & Import Messages in WLM.pdf then empty the inbox.
