How to import outlook express to windows live mail? RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of the my client has been using Outlook Express on his Windows XP system. Recently He has upgraded his system to Windows 7 professional. I suggested him to upgrade to latest Windows 10 and use Outlook instead of Windows Live Mail. But he insisted me to go with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail. Is there any trick available to import Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail?

  • Hi,

    I'm afraid you need to specify what do you want to export from Outlook Express and import it to Win. Live Mail.
    i.e. emails (messages), address book, etc.

  • There once was a site called OEHelp.com ran by an MVP named Steve Cochran that had everything one would need for this.  Sadly, Steve passed away a year ago and his site is no longer available.  There aren't many resources left, however, I've found these:

    You have posted so many times and deleted them continuously.
    I'm afraid it would be rude manner and noisy. Please stop that.
