    Help! I backed up my emails from Outlook Express (which I was using using
    Windows XP) on a file before I changed my CPU and I now use Windows Vista.

    How can I import all my saved emails to Outlook as I currenly don't have
    access to them. to Windows Live Mail and/or Outlook that came with Word
    Office 2007.

    Thanks so much!

    You'll get better answers for Windows Live Mail if you ask in the newsgroup
    that was meant for it:

    microsoft.public.windows.live.mail.desktop

    You'll get better answers for Outlook if you ask in one of the several
    newsgroups meant for Outlook, such as:

    microsoft.public.outlook.general

    Mention which version of Outlook you are using, and that you are using
    it under Vista, in case it matters.

    Outlook Express & Outlook are two entirely different apps
    Outlook is a component of some versions of Office, the complete suite that
    is, its not part of Word 2007

    How do I back up my files and settings?

    If you wish to Office Outlook, the simplest method is to import OE data into
    Windows Mail, Install and configure Outlook, then use Windows Mail to export
    everything to Outlook.
