Transferring Outlook Express to 64-bit Outlook 2010

This works fine if Outlook 2010 is 32 bit.  I have filed a bug to the Product Group and hopefully this will be considered in a future update.  Unfortunately the only workaround that I am aware of at this time would be to uninstall Outlook 2010 64 bit and install the 32 bit version." 


    Can we install the 32-bit version of Outlook 2010, follow the steps above to move Outlook Express 6 messages to Outlook 2010, uninstall 32-bit Outlook 2010, and then install 64-bit Outlook 2010 and still have the messages?

  • Hi,

    Thank you for using Outlook IT Pro Discussions forum.

    We can follow the steps below:
    First, we need to first install Windows Live on the Windows 7 computer to have Windows Mail installed on the computer. If you have not installed Windows Live Mail on Windows 7, please download Windows Live Essentials from the link below and install it first.

    Second, follow the steps in this link to import messages into Windows Mail from Outlook Express:

    Note: The steps in the link above are for Windows XP and Windows Vista, we can also use the steps in Windows XP and Windows 7.
    Third, try to import the message from Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2010:
    In Outlook 2010, click File > Open > Import > Import Internet Mail and Addresses > Outlook Express…. or Windows Mail.
    Please take your time to try the suggestions and let me know the results at your earliest convenience. If anything is unclear or if there is anything I can do for you, please feel free to let me know.
    Best Regards,

  • "Nick",

    All you did was copy, word for word  ---- and without giving credit to the original author --- everything "Sally Tang" wrote previously in the VERY THREAD that I referenced above.  And, if we read that very thread, we see that Teresa Walker CORRECTED the erroneous information that Sally provided (and that you're now uselessly parroting).

    Does anyone have a useful answer?
