Looks like accounts and messages have an import/export mechanism. I would guess that when you export messages it would collect the contents of the "Windows Live Mail" folder in Windows Explorer (called the "message store" in WLM). That folder contains all messages including storage folders and feeds. Why not try doing an export and without actually completing the import, just view the options available at the start of the import process to see if feeds and storage folders are included in the list?

I have tried those steps once, about one year ago.
All the feeds have gone!
There must be a solution for the feeds!
