Windows 7: Migrating from IMAP to Exchange

Migrating from IMAP to Exchange

My wife and I have our own e-mail accounts through our website host. They are offering Exchange accounts, and we're thinking of converting our e-mail addresses into Exchange accounts, just to simplify our access across multiple devices.

The question is, if we currently use Windows Live Mail to handle our e-mail, what's the best way of migrating our e-mails from there into Outlook 2010? Does Outlook's import feature handle this automatically?

I'm not concerned about contacts, calendars, etc. Those will be created new once we switch to Exchange.

Problem solved. I was unaware that WLM allows you to export to a .pst file. That solves my issue!
