Outlook Express files in Live Mail unable to see in Live Mail


New Member
Hi All

I have imported my Outlook Express files into Live Mail (from an XP machine to a laptop running windows 7) using the import function in Live Mail. When I look in the Storage Folders there are no files to view. In the Quick Views I am able to read and see unread emails from Outlook Express but not emails that I have read on my XP machine.
To do the import I copied the files from the XP machine to a USB stick and then on the laptop browsed to find the files on the stick. The folder containing the OE files in not read only.
Any help would be appreciated

If you're just trying to move the emails, you could try this. It's the long way to go about it but will definitely will work. Burn them to a cd/dvd or flash drive and copy them from there to the email box (inbox, saved) you want.
