Thought it best to start another thread so that I can explain my problem
Puter 1 - windows xp pro - outlook express
3 identities and 3 address books
Puter 2 - windows 7 pro - windows live mail (new never used)
Will need the equivalent of 3 identities and 3 address books.
Or whatever windows live mail calls them.
Create windows live mail on puter 1 and create 3 identities.
Export each identity from outlook express into the corrresponding
identity on windows live mail. Meaning I would have to sign on to the
proper identity in windows live mail before importing. How the address
books and settings get copied is a mystery. In my recent fumblings
I got only 1 identity copied and the others would just not copy. Will
start windows live mail over from scratch on puter 1.
Then hope I can find a way to copy the windows live mail from
puter 1 to puter 2.
Playing with the files from outlook express is a nightmare that I
don't want to get into.
Other than this it is a manual affair involving about 100 folders
and thousands of messages.
