Windows 7: Migrating exported Windows Mail to Outlook 2007

Migrating exported Windows Mail to Outlook 2007

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to import my exported Windows Mail to Outlook 2007. I exported my mail a few days ago from my laptop to an external drive before I scrubbed that laptop to give to my little brother.

Under Outlook 2007
File->Import and Export...->Import from another program or file->Outlook Express 4.x, 5.x, 6.x or Windows Mail

When selecting the options above, I get a message, "No internet accounts were found to import."

I was hoping it would open a dialog for me to point to the exported folders that were created by Windows mail. I've tried the following option below, with similar results:

File->Import and Export...->Import Internet Mail and Addresses->Outlook Express 4.x, 5.x, 6.x or Windows Mail

Does anyone know how I can recover those messages with dates intact? Windows Mail exported my mails into the folders with .eml files in them, but I get no options to import them from Outlook 2007. Each .eml file appears to be individual email messages.

Thanks!
Gnimble

By the way, when I export from Windows Mail, it did not create a pst file, so I'm unable to use the directions provided by the following link (I'm assuming the directions will be very similar to Windows 7).

I finally found a way... it took some time but I was able to import my mail to Outlook. I first download and install Windows Live Essentials which includes Windows Live Mail. I imported my messages into Windows Live Mail, and from Live Mail, export my messages directly to Outlook.

Now I will need some time to sort my 11k messages. Yikes!

Cheers,
