Windows live mail import .olm or .eml

Dear members,

Iíve just installed outlook 2011 on my mac and accidentally downloaded al the mails from the server. So I have 0 mails left on my live account but they I do have them in outlook 2011. I want to reverse it, but outlook 2011 can only export .olm or .eml files.

How do import these in Windows live mail?

Thanks so much

I believe .eml messages can be dragged from Windows Explorer directly into a folder within the WLM program. I'm not familiar with Outlook, but if it can export to .eml, it's worth giving it a try. It might also be possibe to import a group of them in the Windows Live Mail format since that is .eml. In that case you would navigate to the folder in Windows Explorer that contains the exported *.eml messages.
