You say remove all Windows Mail folders and files, even the ones in the Hidden Folders which are part of Windows 7.

Yes, remove ALL original Windows Mail files or you will have conflicts. It needs to be a clean slate to import to. But if you want, first do a back-up copy of the original saved to a storage folder. In my case I didn't bother, because it never worked anyway.

In the Techspot guide you first enable viewing of all hidden & protected files. This is precisely so you can remove any hidden files in the original Windows Mail folder in Program Files in Win7. In fact I totally deleted the entire original Windows Mail folder, (as distinct from files), before importing the entire Win Mail folder from Program files in Vista.

As you have 64 bit Win7 OS, just make sure you put the entire 64 bit imported Windows Mail folder from Vista, into the 64 bit Progrm files in Win7, in case your PC is running any old 32 bit programs, for which it will have a separate Program Files.

Hope this helps. Cheers PB

Brilliant, Windows Mail is now displayed.
Just got to make sure it all works properly, if not this old Pom we be back in touch again.

Really appreciated your help, you're a star, thanks.

That's great Pete. Glad was able to help. If you have any trouble setting Windows Mail as default, refer to the notes at the bottom of the Techspot forum guide.

Cheers PB

I've used this tutorial for adding WinMail to Win 7 and all is working well. Thanks. I've also used this tutorial How to add Windows Calendar to Windows 7 to add WinCalendar which works as well. In WinMail I have a toolbarbutton to access WinCalendar although it doesn't bring up WinCalendar. Anyone have an idea what to tinker with in order to make it work?

FYI, you don't need to delete/replace everything in the Windows Mail Folder in order to make WinMail work in Win 7. All you need is msoe.dll and the WinMail.exe from a Vista install.

This diagram shows WindowsMail in the Programs folder

But I don't have that.

I have Windows Live Mail in the Windows Live folder.


Where can I find Windows Mail?


Thanks

Just like many of the folks posting here I do not like the Live Mail and prefer Windows Mail. Unfortunately when you use a copy and paste approach you can get the Windows Mail to function as a free standing program but you can't get it to integrate with the OS. (can't set as default, no secutirty updates, no junk mail filter update, no mail from within IE, etc.) After running into various problems I finally tried the Mozilla Thunderbird E-mail program and have found it to be a more than acceptable substitute for Windows Mail. One of the best things I like is that you can also pick up your web based e-mail like Hotmail, G-mail, etc. from within the program. Just throwing it out there as an option. Windows Seven Forum has become my "go to" place on any issues I have with my Windows 7 OS. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for these instructions.

You say 'Go to your Programs folder and Take Ownership of the Windows Mail Folder

One problem though. But in my Windows7, there is no Windows Mail folder in Programs, only Windows Live Mail.


Where can I find that folder?


Many thanks

Mine is set to default, reads .eml, opens in IE. You may have missed an alternate link in this thread for fixing those issues.

Is it possible to put a 32bit Windows Mail folder in a 64 bit 7 system?

Thanks
