Which method did you use to do the import? The original method shown in this tutorial does not include the regedit auto exe file you need to open .eml emails on desktop.

If you read post 317 on page 32 of this thread, found here, it shows a modified method of enabling WinMail to work in Windows 7.

In step 1 of this post it has an attachment, WinMailEdit.zip, which edits the registry to allow .eml email files to open on desktop. Then follow step 2 to remove the attributes. If this still doesn't work, you may need to do an additional manual regedit, shown in Footnote 2 of this post... but only if the registry key shown is on your PC. Then finally, re-boot your PC.

Worst case scenario is you may have to restore everything to it's original state and start again using the instructions in post 317. Be sure to do the steps in strict order, or it may not work.

Hope this helps. Cheers PB

Windows Mail will not let you setup a pop3 account to download from hotmail. Any attempt to set up an account with an @hotmail.com address will generate a "Windows mail no longer supports the HTTP servers used by Hotmail and other web based e-mail providers" and won't let you proceed. I have found a workaround complete with a Word document pictorial that I could provide if one of the administrators could give me instructions on how to upload or email for evaluation and editing. I have the ability to generate a .doc, .html or .mht simple web page from within Word but that is about it. I wasn't able to find a turorial here for the hotmail issue with Windows Mail. For all I know a tutorial may already be on the site.

Personally I use Gmail but what you offer sounds like it would be a great addition to this topic.

Thanks, poppa bear. I hate it when I am forced to follow the directions. But once I used the .zip file, all is now well. Thanks again.

I did finally get WinMail to open on my Windows 7 Ultimate. I think some of the problem was the fact that it was 64 bit. In any case....now the problem is that every time it does open...Winmail creates a new set of recovered message folders each time. I did put in my messages that I and address file that I needed to keep that were under the User/App/local.......files....but I am not understanding why it recovers these files on each launch. Not the messages each time...but a whole new set of file folders for the messages. Do you know how to correct this??

Haven't encountered this problem before, and unfortunately what you've said doesn't make sense re User/App/local.......files? But obviously that's where the problem lies.

First off I'd suggest undoing whatever steps you took re User/App/local.......files.

If that doesn't fix it, all I can really suggest is to save all your emails. Then completely remove the current 64bit Windows Mail files; restore the entire original Windows Mail folder that came in Windows 7; then start the whole import process again using the instructions in post 317 found here. Follow the instructions exactly.

Please note, in 64bit Windows 7 there are two Windows Mail folders. One in the normal 64bit Program files, and one in the 32bit Program Files(x86). All modifications should be made in the normal 64bit Program files.

When carrying out Step 4 of the post, make sure you import the "msoe.dll" file to the 64bit normal Program Files, not the Program Files(x86). See Footnote 3 of the post and the diagram in it to see exactly where it should go.

Could you then try to be more exact in explaining what you were originally trying to achieve with User/App/local.......files, and someone may be able to help you with this issue.

Good luck. PB

transferring old emails, folders, address book, etc

Users>Name>appdata>local>microsoft>windowsmail.............
When doing a backup set...this is where all the created folders, old emails, address book, etc are located. Those files are not in the Winmail file in program files. If these files are not moved to the new computer, how would it find the old emails and files and address book. Those files are not in the one dll file?
Whenever I have upgraded from 98 to XP and XP to Vista...I have always moved these files so that Winmail (or Outlook Express) were kept up with all of the business emails I need to retain.
I don't have a problem doing this all over again...because I need to have it correct on my laptop. I guess I would like to understand how the not just have Winmail on the Windows7 computer...but also have retained all of the old files, emails, folders, and address book that are currently on the desktop computer running Vista.
