Exporting email messages from WLM to Outlook

    I was hoping someone might be able to give me some advice on how to export my
    email messages from one machine running Windows Live Mail to another machine
    running Microsoft Outlook 7.

    We're talking about 7000 email messages here and I am petrified of losing 5
    years of email history, but each time I attempt to export from WLM (using the
    microsoft exchange/ outlook format), I receive an error and WLM closes down.

    I can find a file called "Mail.MSMessageStore" on the WLM machine, but not
    sure how I can connect to this using Outlook. Any help would be appreciated!

    Try exporting one folder.
    These instructions are altered from a message by winston.

    File/Export/Messages
    Choose Microsoft Windows Live Mail, click next
    Click Browse, and browse to a new folder, Select the folder, click OK,
    Click Next
    Select a Folder, click Next....the export will begin...do not interrupt

    Copy the files to a jump drive (former is preferred... retains the
    file's write attribute vs the cd read only)
    Copy the folder to new machine desktop or folder of your choice.

    Open Outlook and try to import the folder.

    Thanks for your reply Ronald, but I am not sure how to import a folder into
    Microsoft Outlook. When I use the Import and Export tool within the File
    menu, there are a variety of Import formats to select from, but none that I
    can see will a) allow me to import an entire folder or b) individual .eml
    messages. Any suggestions?

    The only option is to to Import from another program or file.
    Outlook 2007 will recognize Outlook Express and Windows Mail(Vista's client).
    - It does not prompt or acknowledge WLM even if present on the same system.

    It would be wise to not tamper with MailMsMessageStore!
    It would be wise before proceeding any further to use WLM export messages function to backup WLM's messages and
    accounts....instructions are here, also available in other threads in this forum.

    I've not attempted the WLM to OL07 direction..thus ymmv especially if you've ~7000 messages over 5 yrs(which obviously originated
    in a different program prior to the 5 month old RTM version of WLM.

    If OL07 is already in use, backup its pst file to avoid damage and prior to attempting an import using 'another program or file'
    the messages***need*** to be moved into Windows Mail or OE depending upon your operating system.
    - The alternative is to drag and drop, though OL07 will still see those dragged as eml files not native to Outlook 07. Plus, if
    WLM is present they will continue to open in WLM since that most likely is congifured as the default for *.eml files(OL is not an
    option for *.eml files on my Vista machine only WLM and WM)

    Finally as far as I can see it will create the account and import all...no selective folder or individual choices. 7000 is quite a
    lot..don't interrupt it may take a while.

    I successfully exported WLM all my storage folders to Outlook 2007, where
    they showed up as Personal Folders, Storage Folders. There is the option to
    export all folders or selected folders. Spot checks seem to indicate that
    messages and folder structure are intact. There are lots of messages going
    back a few years, but maybe not 7000. Back up Outlook's messages first, or
    export to an empty message store. It said something about a "Profile".

    Cordialment,

    Which file type option in OL07 did you choose to Import ?
    Sure it didn't pull them from WM or OE?

    In WLM, File, Export, Messages, Microsoft Exchange, Profile Name "Outlook",
    Selected Folders, select all storage folders, and "OK". Boot Outlook 2007
    and there's all your mail. It sure looks as if it's all there, but I
    wouldn't swear to it yet. I am curious about "mail profiles" but I haven't
    had time to see what it does. According to the popup, I can create a new
    mail profile in Control Panel and export messages there.

    Cheers,

    Re: windows live mail to msoutlook 2003

    Windows Live Mail does not export to Outlook 2003, nor does Outlook 2003 import from WLM.

    To resolve your problem..

    1. Sign up for a new Hotmail account(or use an existing one)
    - if new, ensure you logon to the account at mail.live.com to validate the account and setup the account to create the Inbox
    and other default folders in the web UI
    2. Create user created folders in the account in the web UI
    - create as many as you need(subfolders are not allowed)
    3. Setup the Hotmail account in WLM (do not setup as Pop3, ie. setup as an Http account)
    4. Perform a full Sync in WLM to setup the folders for the account in WLM
    - optional since WLM will prompt to download the folders when accessing the account in WLM
    5. Copy(not Move) messages from other accounts in WLM to the folders in the Hotmail(http) account in WLM
    6. Sync in WLM to ensure the messages are uploaded to the web server
    - logon to mail.live.com to ensure the messages are present
    7. Install the Outlook Connector in Outlook(Version 12 or the Version 14 beta)
    - note if you use Version 14 and are using Outlook 2010 beta ensure you install the correct one(32 or 64 bit) for your version
    of Office/Outlook
    8. Add the account to the Outlook Connector(click on Outlook Connector on the OL toolbar and add account)
    9. Close Outlook(needs to be done to setup the account and create the *.ost file for use with the Outlook Connector
    10. Open Outlook and perform a send/receive on the Hotmail account.
    11. Once complete the messages on the web UI will be available in Outlook in the Hotmail accounts folder structure(scroll to bottom
    in Outlook' s folder pane-left hand side)

    At this stage you can copy the messages from the Hotmail account's folders to Outlook's folders(default or user created)

    Once complete, you can remove the http account in WLM and Outlook.
    - Note: if removing the account in Outlook and also removing the Outlook Connector it is important to done in the following order
    a. Remove the account in Outlook (access email account setup, select the account and remove)
    b. Uninstall the Outlook Connector(Add-Remove Programs for XP or Programs and Features for Vista/Win7)
    ***Do Not*** perform (b) before (a) !!!!

    I am assuming that you already know how to export contacts to a CSV file in WLM and import them for use into Outlook....if that
    assumption is incorrect, consider doing so before you uninstall WLM.

    Re: windows live mail to msoutlook 2003

    In addition to the detailed information Winston provided, I believe you will
    have to copy those folders from the pendrive to the PC's hard drive before
    you'll be able to work with them. There are some access issues with
    external media.

  12. Convert Windows Live Mail to Outlook

    I would suggest you to export emails from Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2007 using this program link:

    http://www.pcvare.com/convert-windows-live-mail-to-outlook.html

    I found this tool a week ago when i am having problem to convert Windows Live Mail to Outlook. Then I searched google and found this tool. It successfully converts all my emails from Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2007.

    Hope you will also get best results.

    Regards,
    Sammy Samuels

  13. Convert Windows Live Mail to Outlook

    I would suggest you to export emails from Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2007 using this program link:

    http://www.pcvare.com/convert-windows-live-mail-to-outlook.html

    I found this tool a week ago when i am having problem to convert Windows Live Mail to Outlook. Then I searched google and found this tool. It successfully converts all my emails from Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2007.

    Hope you will also get best results.

    Regards,
    Sammy Samuels

    Re: Convert Windows Live Mail to Outlook

    Windows Live Mail provides the option to export to Exchange.
    - that Exchange option exports all WLM msgs to the current default Outlook profile(*.pst)

    Fyi...you replied to a post written 2 years 3 months ago..

    *** I hope the op found a solution before now !!!

    Re: Convert Windows Live Mail to Outlook

    One post is sufficient, instead of 3.

    One doesn't need the convert. Windows Live Mail(all versions 2008, 2009, 2010 beta, 2011 beta)provides that ability built in. Select 'Exchange' as the Export option.

    ?
    WLM has a built-in export to Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Outlook.
    - the only requirement is that Outlook needs to be installed since the export engine needs to find the Outlook default userprofile.

    And....it's ***free***
