  • Question

  • Hi

    I trasfered my Windows Live Mail data to Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. Using export utility I selected the folders to export and after OK I can read the display saying transfering no of files. After completion of the data tranfer the system reports " Your messages were sucessfully exported using the Microsoft format." After this when I check the Outlook 2007 I found that the folder header are updated but the data is missing.

    Kindly report how to resolve the issue. Please revert back asap

    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 Exportand 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 Completedialog box appears, click Finish.

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

    --If this means Windows Live Mail doesn't export data successfully, we need to post the question in this forum:http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windowslive/forum/livemail?tab=QnA
