Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by Klaas Klunder, Apr 13, 2007.

  1. How do I import messages en contactpersons which I exported form Outlook into
    a file named outlook.pst into Windows Mail? I get a message that messages
    cannot be imported from MAPI-client.

  2. You have to have Outlook installed to import from a pst file into WinMail.
    You can install the evaluation version of Office 2007 to do this.

  3. I have a similar problem. I failed to transfer the contactpersons from
    Outlook 2003 under Windows XP to Windows Mail under Windows Vista. Tryed all
    available fileformats via my USB-harddisc. How, please.

  5. In Outlook on your XP machine, go to 'File|Import and Export|Export to a
    file|Comma Separated Values' and export your Contacts. Take this .CSV file
    to your Vista machine and use 'File|Import|Windows Contacts|CSV' to import
    the Contacts file.

    :geek: ::I have found it! Outlook .pst files are not compatible wit
    vista windows mail, but... go back to your other computer, or program
    and export contacts list as a file in .csv format, choose all paths yo
    would like also imported, as in, home address, notes... etc.:
    :: And then, import in windows mail, choosing again the paths you wan
    to add. bingo..

  7. I have a trial copy of Outlook 2007 on my new Windows 7 PC with my old
    computer's Outlook .pst files successfully transferred in and it all looks
    fine. I am not able to get Winmail to transfer these files in. I don't really
    want to buy the demo as I have bought and installed Office Home and Student.

    Windows Mail is not supported on win7, Windows Live Mail is
    In WLM import from Exchange (outlook)

    PS If you installed Office H&S without first uninstalling the Trial Version
    of Office, together with its Activation Assistant, then rebooted prior to
    installing your paid for version, then you still have the Trial version,
    which will expire at some stage

  9. Unfortunately the current version of Windows Live Mail will not
    import Outlook or Exchange .pst files. You have to import them
    into Outlook Express, then import the resulting .dbx files into
    Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail.
