    I have an exported folder from windows live mail containing all my emails in the form of .eml files. I dont have any other back up of my emails other than this foldr and I want to import all my emails in outlook 2007. I find no option in outlook 2007 to import .eml files. So how can I import .eml files in outlook 2007. Thank you.

    Regarding your query I did a research and found a tool that can help you, here the link:-

    I read in its features that this tool has the capability to convert .eml files into .pst that is the file extension for your outlook 2010.

    I would suggest you to get the trial period setup first and check its fuctioning and get used to the proper working.
    I hope this information helps you.

    There is no manual option available in outlook 2007 to convert eml file to pst file. For this, best solution is windows live mail to pst converter tool. You can easily search in Google:

    Yes, can get your eml messages files placed inside a folder to a pst file. Manual solution for Eml to PST is widely used by some geek for preparing the solution for supporting users using various client applications. But there is no direct solution for this particular file conversion. You may also find a manual for eml message to pst files.

    I have tried one of them let me brief as much as possible. Hope you able to understand-
    1. Copied your EML file inside a folder
    2. Place that folder inside the local folder of Windows Mail. User this path for locating Local folder -: C:\Users\admin\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Local Folders
    3. Open Windows live Mail and go to File -> Import -> Windows mail -> Select specific folder (in which we copied mails earlier) and click ok.
    4. Drag and drop the mail from imported folder to the Imap account folder displayed at the left side bar.
    5. Synchronize the windows live Mail with your web account/ IMAP account.
    6. Open Outlook and click on send and received messages.
    7. find your mails in imap account inside Outlook 2007 and copied to new folder which will makes a new pst file.

    This is the way i have converted eml file to pst. If you're not able to perform this manual method and looks a bit tough then you can search for a professional software.

    Though MS Outlook client doesn't provide you any feature to import EML files, but Windows Live Mail has an export feature by using which you can export email messages to Outlook client with ease. Instead of using any paid tool for EML to PST conversion, one must try this manual trick.
