Windows 7: import vista mailboxes to windows 7

import vista mailboxes to windows 7

I read how to import vista mail contacts to windows 7 (using windows Live), but how do you import(?) vista mailboxes (sent, deleted, saved, etc)?? Also, can you continue to have a microsoft news reader in windows 7 and can one import those also in some fashion? TIA

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Before I do any fresh windows installation I always make a backup of the c:\users\<account>appdata folder which contains the settings of nearly every program installed. It also happens to contain the emails and settings for WLM.

So if you backup C:\Users\<accout>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail to another location, you will be able to copy those files back after the new installation.

Should have more specific I guess. This is a windows 7 upgrade from Vista Home premium, not a fresh install. Just trying to get my ducks in a row when windows 7 becomes available. Kinda seems like MS would make sometype of migration/import software available to handle these issues especially since Windows 7 has no built-in mail, etc. TIA
