This is for Windows Mail, not Windows Live Mail which is completely different.

Windows Live Mail is nearly identical to Windows Mail. Don't confuse it with the web based service. It is a standalone program. There is no need to try and make Windows Mail work on Seven.

I don't use Windows Mail and I only made the tutorial for others who wanted it, but you can't tell me they are almost identical, maybe in appearance but you can't even use a Windows Live account with Windows Mail so how are they the same.

A windows mail user (or Outlook Express user) would be very comfortable using Windows Live Mail under Seven. It has basically the same features with an enhanced visual design (subjective I presume).

Thank you Mr Grim

I didn't look back that far.

I like that take ownership thingy. I have downloaded it but not tried it yet.

As you can see, I am new to this forum and my only other post was to try and get some help with recovering email histories which seem to be stuck in the Winmail storage folder and are not imported when the folder is??

http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...tml#post132080

Do you have any ideas about that?

Best regards

Email histories fixed.

It turned out that the culprit was Outlook.

To transfer out of windows mail, you need to transfer to Outlook and then onward to your selected email program. I had a triple boot setup, XP, Vista and Win 7. and was trying to transfer my email histories from Vista into Win 7.

I was running MS Office Home and Student, which does not have Outlook, so I loaded Outlook from my older Office XP Pro disk. I only installed Outlook, not the whole Office files and that was what caused the problem. My email histories transferred OK but were corrupted and I could not open them in Windows mail or Thunderbird under Win 7. In fact, they could not even be viewed.

I went back and loaded the whole of Office XP Pro and Outlook then did its transfer job correctly. I hope this helps someone caught in the same situation.

After dabbling in Thunderbird, I quite liked it and have decided to stay with it.

I perhaps should not be that enthusiastic about transferring everything to Win 7 RC, as shortly, the real Win 7 will be available and I understand an upgrade from the RC version is not possible.
