Windows 7: Transferring folders from one computer email account to another

Transferring folders from one computer email account to another

I have Windows Live Mail on two computers and use the same email address and password for both.

One is a desktop with Vista Home Premium SP2 and the other is a laptop with Windows 7.

I have a large folder section on my older desktop/Vista that I want to transfer to the Windows Live Mail on my newer laptop/Win7 so that no matter which computer I am on, I can store email documents in the proper folders and have a complete record on both computers.

For transferring I have a couple of larger flash drives and also have external drives for both computers.

Can someone tell me how to accomplish this please.

Thank you

I'm wanting to transfer the folders (with the emails inside). I suppose one would have to go to the Store Location to do this, but I'm not sure of the steps involved.

The tutorial tells and shows you how to import folders into WLM. Copy the folder you have onto a flash drive or external harddrive, then go to your new machine and do the import messages, you are givien a choice of what folders you want to import, all, or selected folders, look at the pic in step 7. It will work.
