problems with importing from outlook express and editing

    I am trying to import my message stores from OE to WLM. I followed the
    instructions posted in "Re: OE to Windows Live" I have the message stores
    on the desktop. When I follow the import command, all it does is create a
    set of folders within Storage Folders section, but no files are brought in.
    Can you help me? Also within WLM when trying to edit an email prior to
    forwarding, I can no longer edit the source HTML code. How do I do that?

  2. Is there a plus sign in front of the 'Imported' folders under Storage folders?
    Make sure you have fully expanded the sub-folders.

    Windows Live Mail no longer has a facility to edit HTML source code.
    Do your editing in Notepad.

    Thanks for the reply.

    No plus sign or triangle in front of any of the three folders created.
    Which sub-folders are you referring to, WLM folders or the folders I am
    trying to import? All the sub folders I am trying to import are .dbx
    folders.

    Is there a plus sign in front of the 'Imported' folders under Storage
    folders?
    Make sure you have fully expanded the sub-folders.

    Windows Live Mail no longer has a facility to edit HTML source code.
    Do your editing in Notepad.

  4. By sub-folders I meant the ones under Storage Folders/Imported Folder/...

    Make sure the .dbx folders are not 'Read Only', and that folders.dbx is in
    the same location as the other .dbx folders.
