    I have bought a new computer which has Windows 7 on it so it will not
    support Outlook Express. How can I transfer all my messages and folders from
    Outlook Express in the old computer to Windows Live Mail which I will be
    installing on the new computer?

    Thank you

  2. Copy all the .dbx files from Outlook Express and save them to a portable
    drive. On your Windows 7 computer, copy those files to an empty folder
    under Documents. Open Windows Live Mail, then File, Import, Messages,
    choose "Microsoft Outlook Express 6". The rest is obvious.
    Windows Live Mail can't import directly from external media.
