    I have spent a few hours trying to find out how to do this and Im
    getting no where!. I have 2 laptops - 1 with Vista on it (has Windows
    Mail) and another laptop with XP on it (has Microsoft Outlook 2007 on
    it.) Can someone please tell me if it is possible to export all folders
    (messages and contacts) from Windows Mail (Vista Laptop) to Microsoft
    Outlook 2007 (On the XP Laptop). If this is possible, can you please
    tell me in step by step instructions, or point me in the right directin
    where I can find instructions?

    Also while I am at it, I would also like to export contacts (and
    messages too if easy enough) from Outlook 2003 (on Vista Laptop) to
    Outlook Express (which is on the XP Laptop).

    Thanking everyone in advance!

  2. A1. No. You would haved to migrate the Windows Mail data to Outlook Express
    (OE) on the WinXP machine, and then export the OE data to Outlook (OL).

    => Note that I did NOT say "and then import the OE data into OL.")

    A2. Similarly, you would have to import the OL/Vista PST file to OL/WinXP,
    and then import the OL/WinXP data into OE.

    => Note that I did NOT say "and then export the OL data to OE."
