Windows Mail Import & Export File Formats Not Compatible

Q: Windows Mail Import & Export File Formats Not Compatible

I recently was having trouble with my Windows Mail so I Exported all my files to a Windows Mail folder I created in My Documents. I have a dual core 64 bit HP PC with a VISTA HOME Pro OS. I use Google Chrome as my browser. The email files were exported in the format ".eml" (I was not given any choice). Later, when I tried to bring them back Windows Mail Import only looks for "Microsoft Exchange, Outlook, Outlook Express 6 or Windows Mail 7" so sees no files to import. This makaes no sense , to export in one format and import in another. Is there any way I can change the format of the files so I can import them? Thanks for any help.

Preferred Solution: Windows Mail Import & Export File Formats Not Compatible

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I also have same problem, please help.
Here's the problem: when I try to import the messages from the flash drive using File/Import/Messages, select "MS Windows Mail 7" format and navigate to the directory containing the .eml files, I get a "No items match your search" in the import browse window.
I did note that the export format option reads "MS Windows Mail" while the import format option reads "Windows Mail 7". Not sure if that's the issue.

I don't know where I am doing wrong. I checked your document also but I didn't get it. Please help.

A:Windows Mail Export/Import Problem

Hello Robin, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Importing the messages can be tricky. Copy the exported folder to your desktop instead, then try selecting the folder to importing them.

Depending on how many messages (.eml files) you have, you could also just drag and drop the .eml files into your Inbox in Windows Mail to add them back.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi New Member here posting his first question, can you help please?

I wish to transfer the messages in my WLMail on my pc to my WLMail on my laptop.

Thank you in advance.

A:Windows Live Mail Export/Import

Windows Mail has an "export" function and you can save the file to Desktop, transfer to USB drive or CD/DVD and then "import" that file to the other computer.

This will work for Contacts and Mail, but I've not been able to get the Message Rules to transfer over easily.

However, I DID find the registry entries where the Message Rules are stored and I transfered those over, but WM ran VERY buggy afterwards, and I would not recommend trying it.

If you exported them to the thumb drive using the export option and then import them with the import option it should work. (I admit I haven't tried moving emails from the 2011 version on Windows 7 to the 2009 version on XP.)

I want to move some Window Mail emails between computers. I can export them fine selecting "MS Windows Mail" format and they are saved to the destination directory with what appear to be hexadecimal file names with .eml extension. If I move the files to the other PC on a flash drive and click on one of them, it opens perfectly in Windows Mail.

Here's the problem: when I try to import the messages from the flash drive using File/Import/Messages, select "MS Windows Mail 7" format or "MS Outlook Express 6" options, and navigate to the directory containing the .eml files, I get a "No items match your search" in the import browse window. I've tried the MS Exchange and MS Outlook format options, but they error out.

I did note that the export format option reads "MS Windows Mail" while the import format option reads "Windows Mail 7". Not sure if that's the issue.

Anyone have any ideas why the import function can't see the .eml files?

Thanks.

Hi. I have an Acer Extensa 5220. I reformatted my comp today as the hard drive was almost full, but I made sure to back up all my emails. I use Windows Mail with several folders. I exported them all onto a hard drive in a folder with today's date. There were 5 inbox folders in all, 1 sent, and 1 draft. However when importing them back, one of the inbox folders has an error. It shows all the correct senders/time/date etc. but when I go into the content of the email, they all show the same content. Very grateful if anyone can advise if they have seen this issue before, and can possibly offer help or suggestions as there's some important emails I need to get back if at all possible. Thank you.

Hi,
 
I am currently replacing my old computer with a new one and part of that process is to transfer all of my email messages from my old computer to the new one. I use Windows Live Mail for my mail program. I went to the Microsoft web site and looked at the Help instructions for  Exporting and Importing messages and found it to be very straightforward.
 
I created an empty folder on USB drive and then proceeded to run the Export procedure. This involved selecting a destination folder for the exported files, and selecting which folders to include in the export operation. Under my primary email address, I have 10 subfolders, in addition to the usual Inbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items, etc. On the screen where I was asked what format I wanted to use, I selected "Windows Live Mail Format" .On the screen where I am asked which folders that I wanted to Export I selected "All Folders". Then I clicked Next and received a message that the folders had been exported successfully.
 
I then took the USB drive to the new computer, started Windows Live Mail and then attempted to do the Import operation. I chose to import all folders and then initiated the Import. I got a message that the Import was successful. At the bottom of the account list was a folder that was titled Imported Folders. When I opened it, the only thing that was shown was the Inbox and Deleted Items subfolder, and also the Outbox folder. None of the other folders that I chose to back up were there. Als... Read more

Hi.

I've got an old PC running WinXP and I have always used OE 6 on it but I DO have Outlook 2007 loaded onto the same machine.

I want to migrate all my email and address book to my new machine running Win 7 Ultimate x64.

I know I can either IMPORT the emails with Outlook 2007 from OE... OR... I can EXPORT the emails using using OE 6.... correct ?

I read somewhere that if I used the Import function I woul dlose the date/time stamp on my old emails. Is that true ?

So... what is better ? To Import the OE emails thru Outlook and then back the pst up and move it to my new machine.... or us e the Export function on EO to try to export the email to Outlook ?

How about my address book ?

And once I get the email and addresses into Outlook 2007 on my old machine, should I use a Memory stick to move them to the new machine or try to use the Windows Easy Transfer and an easy transfer cable (which I already have) ?

Thanks for any advice.

A:Export/Import: Mail/Contacts From Outlook

It all depends on what e-mail program you are using. If you are using outlook then you want to copy your *.pst files and *.pab files. *.pab files is your personal address book. Hopefully you created a *.pst files, this is your personal folders. if not then you can either create one or export it. you can also export your calender too.

Hey Rainman,

Is there a folder on the PDC in C:\WINNT\System32\Repl\Export called "Scripts"?

If the path name is incorrect then that could be causing a failure to replicate.

Got an Acer with Vista & Windows Mail -- my old Dell had XP Pro and Outlook. I had no problem backingup Outlook to a Seagate external and connecting it to the Acer .. but Windows Mail does not seem to import Outlook .. only Outlook Express. My wife's computer has Outlook Express .. so I thought I would email her my backup file and import it to Outlook Express and then back that up and email it back to me and import that to W Mail ... but the email will not transmit with the backup file attached "not enough memory" the backup is 1.5m.

My next strategy is to go into my old computer and edit folders or do a few partial backups so I get a small enough file(s) to attach to email.

I've been attempting to import my address book into live mail for a while.  The first time I got about 1/3 of it imported.  Then nothing for a long time.  (Months) Then I started going at it again last night and today.  I got another portion imported.  Now I'm not even getting error messages.  Live mail import window just closes up.
 
What I've done:  1. followed the instructions by going to email home and clicking import files.  click on import .csv files. and follow the directions.
 
I removed the data base that has already been imported in a new file. I tried putting it into note pad and I got nowhere with that.  (I cut and pasted the file into note pad- don't know how to open and excel sheet in notepad.) This might be part of the issue....
 
Now When I go through the usual procedure, nothing happens. 
 
What else do you need to know?
 
the file i'm importing is less than 500 lines so it's not large.  The first one successfully imported was well over 500 and only 4 columns.

Don I might be way off track here mate but was the Outlook account the same email address as you have set up in WLM?

Just a thought you might try adding an account to WLM using the old address and password. I did this with my old account from my service provider then went to a Hotmail account.
Now admittedly it was still within WLM but worth a try.

What I will do is try and add my work account (Outlook) to my WLM and see if it works.

Windows Live Mail is Hotmail, with a new look. So I am confused as to what you are trying to do.
It sounds like you created a whole new name for Windows Live Mail... you didn't need to do that.

If you just open Windows Live Mail and logon as the HotMail name you will see all of the contacts.

Click to expand...

This thread was previously closed due to lack of answers, however I found a solution.

When importing a csv file into Hotmail, the email address field is expected as "E-mail Address" however in the csv file created by Windows Live Mail the email address field is "Email Address".

Note the missing hyphen. This means that the email address is not transferred over to Hotmail.

The solution is to edit the csv file using Notepad - simply add the hyphen to the top line of the csv file, save the file and import it into Hotmail.

If you have the same problem with other fields, a useful test to see what field names Hotmail expects is to export a contact from Hotmail and then inspect the csv file which is created using Notepad.

My main problem is because I can't get it to import Matroska (.MKV) video format into layers.
I've never had this problem before... this only happened right after I had a fresh start because I had to replace my HDD because it was dying, I even took the liberty of upgrading from 32-bit to 64-bit.

But after I had installed Photoshop, I noticed that I was not able to import .MKV videos anymore, and I did some quick searches on the internet and most that I found were to download Quicktime, but still didn't work.

I can at least import .AVI, .MOV, .MP4 and such but the majority of my videos are MKV, so I'd like to know if there was a way to do this without the hassle of converting the video? I mean, I was able to do it before but for some reason, I can't now...

I been using Outlook 2003 for 5-6 years and have about 4000 Outlook e-mails saved including a folder which contains all my purchased software serial numbers. I carefully exported all my Outlook 2003 e-mails before switching to Windows mail. I have discovered to my dismay, that Windows mail can not import Outlook mail and somehow in the process of installing Windows mail, my Outlook 2003 program disappeared. My old 2003Student and Teacher Office disk which contained the Outlook 2003 software is too scratched to reinstall. I have looked for some kind of Outlook to Windows Mail converter from Microsoft; but no luck so far. I am absolutely amazed that Microsoft would publish a new mail program and not include import routines for its own legacy mail programs. Outlook 2007 apparently has the same problem with Windows Mail. Even if I purchase a replaacement disk from Microsoft ( I have the orginal box and serial number for my Student and Teacher Office package, so I thick I could still get a replacement disk), I would still have to use two e-mail programs and eventually Outlook 2003 would stop working with some future OS upgrade).

Yes, it's compatible, just make sure you are using the latest version: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/

Not sure what you mean by import from Yahoo. If you are using Yahoo mail on the web and you want to use it with an email client like Thunderbird then you need to setup the email account in Thunderbird and it can download the emails. Here's a good guide on setting it up using IMAP which will give you all the folders you see on the web: http://pop2imap.com/yahoo_thunderbird.php

Hey everyone. I have been on a mission to solve this problem. I've been seeking out and posting on several MS/tech/computer support forums looking for an answer. I've also spent quite a bit of time googling for a solution on my own. So far I have come up empty handed.


My situtaiton and problem is as follows:

I'm working in a small office where we have some computers running Windows Vista and using Windows Mail (version 6.0.6000.16388). We have hundreds of contacts and a couple of contact groups on these computer.

A few months ago we got two new computers which are using Windows XP and Windows Live mail (version 2009, build 14.0.8089.0726). Other computers in the office still have Vista and the other version of Windows Mail.

I have been able to export our hundreds of contacts and import them into Windows Live Mail so the new computers have all of the contacts... however I was unable to find a way to import the groups.

These groups are all very large and consist mostly/entirely out of contacts which don't have individual contact entries.

I have been googling to find a solution to this problem. The closest page I could find was this one:

Having problems exporting my comcast address book to windows live mail address book, can anyone help?

Also tyied exporting address book from plaxo without success, please help!

A:import/export

For reasons I don't entirely understand, import/export to and from email programs is pretty much in the stone age. It just has not improved much over the years.

It rarely works without errors or omissions. In my experience, address books are particularly difficult. You might have to re-enter your addresses by hand if you have them in some form where you can at least read them.

I have a PC, She has a Mac
I have Outlook, She has outlook express
She has a directory I need to use.
We have tried it every way but loose.
I made a folder under Contacts
I highlighted it
I pulled down file and then Import/export
The window asked me to browse and find the file
that I saved on my desktop from her attached email she sent.
I then chose import from another file which is a .pst
and it didn't work
If I choose internal mail and addresses it takes some old
emails from my hard drive and redeposits it to my Inbox, not contact. I want contacts that are saved in a file on my desktop.

when it loaded in my inbox it didn't give me an option to find the file I was loading.

If I send you the file and you try it we could see how it is working.

Can any one offer some instructions as how to export eMail server profiles and address books from Thunderbird so that I can start another one on a different computer, or even importing such files to a different eMail client software? Thanks (2008-12-11, 14:40)

Hi,

I had to perform a system recovery on my laptop so I exported all my email to my external hard drive. I certainly selected the option to export ALL files. Having set up the laptop again I went to import my emails back and there are only a handful there. What happened to the other hundreds? I presume they are lost forever unless someone can suggest a lifeline. I suppose I should have checked the exported files before I wiped the laptop.

I've seen a few threads discussing similar problems. Why does the export function not work properly?

regards
Peter

Is there a way to import or export IE settings so that I can compare my settings with those of my colleague?

I have a web application that lets users click on a link to view a zipped folder, which resides in a database. My colleague clicks the link and he is taken to another page, where a Save As dialog appears, allowing his to open or save the zipped folder, or cancel the action. However, when I try it, the new page opens briefly, then closes again without showing the dialog.

I need to know what settings are different without having to go through each setting one by one.

A:Import export IE settings

The only "Settings" you can import or export are Cookies, Favorites and Feeds. You could take screen shots of your settings but you'll need quite a few such as 2-3 just for "Advanced".
