    I am attempting to import Outlook Express from an XP system into Vista
    Windows Mail. I have copied the contents of OE6 folder to my Vista PC. When
    asked for location to import, it doesn't allow me to type anything into the
    location. I have done this before, but it doesn't seem to work any longer.
    What is preventing me from entering a location into the Import location?

    I have set up my user accounts.

    How can I do the reverse? I want to export all the messages fro
    Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 into Vista Windows Mail

    In Outlook 2007 export to a .pst file, but I don't get the option i
    Windows Mail to import from .pst

    When I tell Windows Mail to import directly from Microsoft Outlook,
    get the following error message

    "-Messages cannot be imported from the MAPI client. MAPI is no
    installed on this computer or an error occurred while initializing it-

    What gives

    You can import all your emails into outlook 2003 or outlook 2007
    and then use the .pst file in vista as well.
