WLM in Win10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Upgraded desktop from Win-8.1 to Win-10. WLM works fine bringing in old email files. With this confidence upgraded laptop from Win-7 to Win 10. WLM runs OK, but did not bring any old email files: Inbox, sent box, folders and contacts. Tried different suggestions on MS forums, no help.

  • Hello,

    If you are not using POP/IMAP, all the emails should be stored on the server side. So, this can be a sync issues between the WLM and mail server.

    I recommend we ask the question in Windows Live Mail forum as it will be more efficient till the final solution:

  • Can you find those missing items if you use Outlook or Hotmail?
