Windows 7: Mail to Live Mail - Imported messages - where are they?

Mail to Live Mail - Imported messages - where are they?


I imported messages etc from the WindowsMail folder of my old Vista PC.

They were all imported to LiveMail, and if I do a search for a particular word, they come up.

But - I cannot find them anywhere in WindowsLiveMail. I've searched and seached.

They are not in 'Imported Folders' - or any other folder. All folders are empty.

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Is there any way I can click on a message that comes up in Search, and find where it is?

I did try to install Windows Mail in 7, but was unsuccessful. I wonder if this is the cause of the problems. Has anyone done this succesfullly?

Many thanks
