Moving mail from Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail

Episode 1591 (1:30:22)

Kerry from New Mexico
Windows Live Mail

Kerry is trying to get some emails off a Windows XP machine from Outlook Express 6 and into Windows Live Mail. But he keeps running into a problem where he tries to copy the emails from the Express Storage folder into a file and onto the desktop.

Leo says you need to first re-index in Outlook Express. oemailrecovery.com has a product that will do that. Once that's set, you can export your emails from Outlook into a .pst file and then re-import them into Live Mail. Instructions on how to do that can be found here.
