Windows 7: Importing WM messages into WLM

We've come full circle. I did what you said--copied the WM messages to a file. But, when I tried to copy that file to another device, I got the "Property Loss" message shown in my first emial. The two choices to proceed to copy the files were Yes and Skip. I tried both. When I proceeded as you suggested, WLM couldn't find anything in the file.

Mark, I have pretty much given up. I tried what you suggest, but the Vista computer wouldn't let me copy my emails onto a portable memory device See my first post at the start of the thread. I was able to import the WM files from the old computer into Outlook 2007 (trial version) on my new computer. I now have Outlook 2007 and WLM on the new computer, but there seems to be no way to get the message files from Outlook to WLM. I guess I'll have to fork ou the bucks for Windows Office 2007 to keep my messages on the new computer even though I don't need it otherwise. Looks like Microsoft won.
