Migration from Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2010 (different computer) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to migrate someone from WLM to Outlook 2010.  WLM is installed on a XP Home machine and Outlook 2010 is installed on a Windows 7 machine.

    In WLM they have about 3 emails accounts and 2000+ emails.  I have found anywhere that explains the proper way to migrate if you are going to a different machine.  You can just drag and down the emails, but then they don't format right when you import them into Outlook 2010 (the date shows the current date, etc).

    I installed Outlook 2003 on the XP machine and tried the export that way, but it exported EVERY email account.  I couldn't select an individual one.  If I open Outlook and do import Internet Mail and what not, it only shows the email accounts in Outlook Express, not Windows Live Mail.

    I have already installed the two accounts on 2010 and told the lady to just use the new Outlook and she'll have to wait until i can find a proper way to move over the data.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi Chris,

    First want to confirm with you, did she store her mail on the server or on her local machine? If she store her mail on the server, you can just add her account into the Outlook 2010 to download her mail directly. If this isn't the situation we met with, let's move on.

    Have you read the article: How to export email messages from Windows Live Mail into Outlook?

    Once you export these mail to the Oultook 2003 in Windows XP, you can export it again from Outlook, and then import it to the Outlook 2010.


    Sincerely,
