Unable to import - Windows Live Mail

Is it just me or are you not able to import accounts into Live Mail. I have just done a fresh install for Win 7 RTM (was on RC) and I exported my mail accounts beforehand using Live Mail using the export option from the menu. However, upon reinstalling there is no import options for accounts only Messages?? Why have an export option without having an import option... Is there a way around this

OK. Open WLM and press Alt to bring up the main toolbar. Select Tools and then click on Accounts... This will bring up the following screen (note that I have hidden my address):
Name:  Capture.PNG

Click on Import...

Browse for the required file (it must have the .iaf extension) and then double-click on it to import it.

unable to import duplicates

I have been trying to import accounts with duplicate user name and incoming server, but different outgoing server. I get the error message that the account already exists. Is there a way other than manually to import these accounts?
