How do you copy mails from one Live mail to another Live Mail

Discussion in 'Windows Live Mail' started by Poul Jørgensen, Jan 14, 2008.

  1. I have moved a hardisk from one pc to another as a slave. That meens that i
    got 2 Live mail clients. I want to copy all my mail from Live mail on the
    slave harddisk to the Live mail on my main harddisk. How can i do it?

    I have tryed to start Live mail from the slave harddisk, but i can still
    only see my new mails belonging to Live mail on main harddisk.

    You didn't mention File, Import, Messages, Windows Live Mail.
    I assume that will import WLM messages from another Windows user, but should
    work for a Store folder on another drive.

    Ron,
    I've noticed some quirks with the File/Import/Messages especially when a
    large store is involved especially where WLM may be interrupted by other
    applications(Windows or 3rd party)

    I've had better luck on other's systems with large stores by first
    exporting the account(*.iaf) on the original system and exporting, then on
    the new system going offline, disabling WU/MU, AV and any other resident
    background malware scanner, then importing the messages.

    To confirm your suggestion..I have also changed the Store folder to another
    drive(after importing the *.iaf file), temporarily exported the messages,
    reset the store to the original location, then imported(same as above,
    disable all the resident interference).
