  • Please perform the steps below to move your Windows Live Mail directly into your Outlook mail files:
    1. Open Microsoft Outlook.
    2. Open Windows Live Mail.
    3. In the Windows Live Mail window, click the File button and select Export and then select Email messages.
    4. Select Microsoft Exchange as the format and then click Next.
    5. You will see a message that all email will be exported to Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange, click Ok to continue.
    6. You can export all email folders or select the appropriate folders that you want to export by using the Select folders option.
    7. After you select the appropriate option, click OK and wait for the export process to be completed.
    8. When the Export Complete dialog box appears, click Finish.

    Important: Exporting Windows Live Mail or Outlook Express mail to Outlook 2013 requires that Outlook 2013 be 32bit.
