Migrate WLM 2011 emails to Outlook 2016 (Office 365) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just installed Office 365 and need to transfer all of my existing emails in WLM2011, I am running win10 (64 bit). I have followed the following instructions (https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/980534http://):

    In the Windows Live Mail window, click the File button and select Export and then select Email messages.
    Select Microsoft Exchange as the format and then click Next.
    You will see a message that all email will be exported to Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange, click Ok to continue.
    You can export all email folders or select the appropriate folders that you want to export by using the Select folders option.
    After you select the appropriate option, click OK and wait for the export process to be completed.

    The underlined bit does not appear, from the 2nd line it goes straight to the export process without giving me the option to pick where it all goes. After the "export" has completed there is nothing showing in Outlook 2016.

    is there a way to export from WLM2011 to Outlook 2016

  • Well, since there's not an Exchange Server involved, this is definitely the wrong place.  Sorry.

    If you suspect the problem is with Outlook, then I recommend that you post this in the Outlook Forum:  http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/outlook/threads

  • I originally posted this in Outlook.com and got sent to to the Exchange forum and then the Office 365 forum and now back full circle to outlook.com. Surely if MS bring out a program (Outlook 2016) which many owners of a previous email program (WML 2011) they should also make sure that there is a relatively simple method of transferring data from one to the other!

  • I did mark the problem as being answered some time ago, so I would be happy if members didn't spend any more of their valuable time on my problem, rather that they diverted their energies to more worthwhile causes!

    It is with with huge thanks that I was able to solve the problem with all the help I received through this forum, hopefully I might be able to repay all your efforts at some time in the future, but I have a horrible feeling that it will normally me be me doing the asking and you all doing the answering!
