Windows 7: Transfer WindowsMail to Thunderbird

Thanks for the response.

If I search WindowsMail then it does come up with eml files, but after copying the data by USB stick, no eml files exist.

I have tried everythingm, downloaded all the adonse, software, tried every trick - nothing works.

I can find the app data file, and the folder you mentioned but no luck.

I think this may be because my old machine's 32 bit and my new one 64bit.


Thanks

I understand your frustration, and I hope I am asking you to repeat anything you have tried, and if I am, I apologize. I found this Answer : Switching from Windows Live Mail to Thunderbird not sure if it is same steps you performed, but hope it helps. I was thinking, to make life easier, maybe you can copy the folder with your eml files to a neutral location, that way it will be easier to navigate to. Make sure wml is not running before you try doing that.

I've just found out that they've been imported to Thunderbird, but I can't find them.. I've searched all the boxes, but they don't seem to be anywhere, even in the Imported boxes.

But, if I search for them, they come up.


Any help appreciated.


Thanks

Using WIndowsMail 32Bit in 64bit
Is it possible to do this. There are instructions here to copy your WindowsMail folder into 7, and use it, but it hasn't worked for me. Could this be the reason - 32 vs 64bit? Cheers!
