Outlook 2003(old computer) to Windows Live Mail( new computer)

Q: Outlook 2003(old computer) to Windows Live Mail( new computer)

I've just changed from Outlook 2003 on my old (XP) machine,to Window Live on my new (Win7) computer.I'm struggling to import the saved e-mails and calendar. The .CSV file method worked for the contacts folder, but not for any thing else. I  do have the  .pst  Outlook back-up file on the new computer, but Live Mail Doesn't want to know!
So-how do I do it?
The Windows Communiy seems not to know either!
And before anybody asks-I've got Thunderbird installed,but it doesn't agree with Virgin e-mail.

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2003(old computer) to Windows Live Mail( new computer)

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

A: Outlook 2003(old computer) to Windows Live Mail( new computer)

Looks like nobody's got any ideas! I've downloaded the free trial of Office 2013, and this has picked up the .pst back up file, and shows the e-mails etc.But-even if Micros**t say it is possible I have yet to find a way to get the files into Windows Live.
Conspiracy theory says it's a plot to make us all buy Office!!!

The motherboard in my old computer died, so I bought a new computer. On the old computer I was running Outlook Express under Windows XP and had established many rules and folders and distribution lists. The new computer is a Power Spec from Micro Center PSB354-1 running Windows 7. The disk from the old machine is fine and is running as an external drive on the new machine. I've copied all the files from it to the new machine.

I'm using Windows Live Mail now, but I'm unable to retrieve my old messages, address book, and rules from Outlook Express (OE). When I look on line, the instruction is to Export the files from Outlook Express, but that presumes that I can open OE. I can't do that since the old machine won't work.

What do I need to do to bring my messages, and especially my address book, into Live Mail?

Whenever I receive an e-mail it hangs all programs. I have reduced the .pst file size (it was getting up there) by deleting old e-mails and compacting the files. Oulook.pst = 436,497 kb; Archive.pst = 59,537 kb. I don't know if it is related but when I delete things from the recycle bin by right clicking on it and choosing "Empty recycle bin" it takes forever, and all programs freeze.

I just bought a new computer today and have an email dilemma I would like input on. I use Outlook for my job and I work from home. I have been using OE for my own side business and personal email. Most of the email addresses I use are ones through my web domain. I have a few gmail accounts and those are forwarded to OE. Of course, my new computer is Windows 7, so no more OE. I have been reading and don't think I can import all the web domain based emails in Windows Mail. Do I have that right? I have lots of saved emails (customer orders, orders to my vendors, etc...).

My preference is to continue to use Outlook for my job and use Windows Live Mail (by default, not sure what else to use) for my own business and personal emails.

I would love some input before I go through all the work to set them up. I still have my old computer and have it hooked up to a spare monitor, so I can access OE there for now, but I need to get my new one set up.

Thanks.

By way of background, I have approx. 400 e-mails (in a specific folder), each e-mail containing a pic & text, which I had previously copied and pasted into each e-mail's message body. I then e-mail them to myself, to retain for future reference.

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.

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). Any suggestions??

Hi all
This is quite a complex operation and MS doesn't actually explain how to do it so here goes.

The trick is to get your email messages into Outlook Express (OE on XP) or Windows Mail (on Vista) before you can import into Windows Live mail. Then the import can be done directly.

There isn't any way currently to import mail directly from Outlook to Windows Live Mail so you have to do it indirectly BEFORE installing Windows 7.

1) even if you don't use Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (VISTA) you need to have them running on the same machine as your copy of OUTLOOK.

2) create (if you haven't already) email accounts in OE or Windows mail identical to those you have in Outlook.

3) Now import your messages from Outlook into OE or Windows Mail.

4) Change the Store Identity in OE or Windows mail to a disk that your W7 can read (do this under Maintenance - data storage locations in OE or Windows Mail).
Doing this saves you having to install Live Mail on Vista or XP

5) Logon to your W7 system and install Windows Live mail.

6) Set up your email accounts

7) File ==> import==>messages

8) Chose Outlook express or Windows mail depending on step 3)

9) Browse to the directory where you stored the messages in step 4)

10) Job done.

A bit fiddly but obviously MS don't want to make it easy for people to switch from Outlook

Note also the "Send and Receive" function is calles "SYNC" in Windows Live mail -- confusing but there it is.

What do I have to do to have Outlook separate and Windows Live (Hotmail) separate please?

A:Outlook 2003 & Windows Live

Windows Live Hotmail is an email service, normally accessed with a web browser.

Outlook is an email program. It can access Hotmail accounts via POP3 or by using the Hotmail Connector.

Windows Live Mail is another program, which can access Hotmail accounts via POP3 or DeltaSync.

I see that you can open an Outlook.com account, and use Windows Live Mail for that. So, does that mean that Microsoft is then the server?

But when attempting to attach an Excel 2003 or Word 2003 documents, the message comes across that Office 2003 is corrupt.

16 June was the date MS started migrating Outlook.com accounts to the sync protocol supported by all MS messaging products.

POP3 and IMAP are still supported.

Two of my three Outlook.com accounts have been migrated. The symptom on my machine was that I could not connect to the server - sometimes, this just requires trying to connect again or entering your password in the dialog.

Expecting some transition issues, I tried the above and then visited Outlook.com.
POP was disabled

If you use POP3 in WLM, you'll need to configure POP3 support again in Outlook.com after your account has been updated.
Settings > Options > POP and IMAP


I don't have any WLM acounts that use IMAP. The only thing I see that has changed is the server address, but I don't think that is a required change right now though it might be in the future if MS consolidates all servers to one server.

Since intalling win7/64 I have been using Windows Live Mail as my e-mail application. It allows me to access mail from my ISP provider (verizon) and from my Hotmail accounts in the one application. Perhaps I am coming a bit late to the game, but I have just learned about Outlook.com.

I do not twitter; I am not on facebook or other social media sites. Is there some advantage in my switching to Outlook.com. Is it in fact an alternative to Live Mail; or am I understanding it wrong? Is it perhaps just a question of "converting" my Hotmail account to Outlook.com and leaving Live Mail in place?

Can someone straighten me out?

In the interest of continuing to use an application instead of relying on a web browser, I recommend Mozilla Thunderbird:

I need a good email program as I am tired of logging on just to check if there are new emails. I know that Outlook is considered the numero uno program for managing emails, but I've also heard of Windows Live Mail, that it is the reincarnation of Outlook Express which personally I've never liked and never used, is considered quite capable of getting the job done, and it is also free, unlike the quite expensive Outlook 2010 (as a part of the whole Office 2010 pack).

So, why do I need a costly program for handling emails if I can get one for free? Why do people praise Outlook so much when they have a free alternative?

In answer to your question, I would suggest that you use any of these fine clients; bottom line they are all the same
Before, I get the response that Windows Live Mail does not come with the system, I know that.

I am using Windows live Mail on a Windows 8 Laptop.
I have 6 email accounts that I use regularly.

In Windows Live Mail each account has it?s own entry complete with ?Inbox?, ?Drafts?, ?Sent Items?, ?Junk? and ?Deleted items? folders.
There is also a Windows Live Mail ?Outbox?, ?Drafts?, ?Sent items?, ?Deleted items? plus Storage folders including ?Drafts?, ?Sent items? and ?Deleted items?....These storage folders appear to be redundant as nothing is ever sent to them or saved in them.
Below the storage folder there is the ?Imported? folder which includes ?Local? folders, ?Drafts?, ?Mail? etc. which were imported from my old Email Client, Outlook Express.

When I use any of my 6 email accounts, messages are dropped into there own individual ?Inbox? and ?Sent items? folder relevant to the email account being used.
This means I have to check each of the 6 separate email accounts to get my mail.

Prior to using Windows 8 I used Outlook Express which had just one ?Inbox?, ?Sent items? folder etc. which was used by all 6 of my email accounts.

Is there any way to set up Windows Live Mail like Outlook Express....with just one ?Inbox?, ?Outbox? etc. for all my email accounts.

Thanks

I have many folders and messages in my outlook express account that I would like to import into my windows live mail account. the outlook express is on an xp machine and the windows live mail is on a 64 bit windows 7 OS. I have been attempting to solve this all day and was able to zip the outlook express folder and email it to myself but the windows 7 will not allow me to access the file ( potential harmful file) any ideas?

thanks

A:Outlook express to windows live mail

Are you sure Windows mail can deal with a zip file when importing?

Can you export from Outlook Express to your hard drive?

General advice: the export/import capabilities of mail programs are clunky and very shaky. If possible, export as few folders as you can stand to do.

If you open Windows Mail and go to its import function, is there a direct choice for OE?

I went through what you are trying last spring and don't recall how I resolved it.
I can tell you I did not like Windows Mail. I chose to go with Thunderbird and have no regrets. It can be configured to be very very similar to OE.

Yes, you can uninstall it. Use Control Panel, Programs, and remove Windows Live Essentials and then remove any 'Live' programs you don't want.

I am trying to export messages from Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2013.
[Note: I exported from Windows Mail (Vista) to Windows Live Mail (Windows 8); I still have my old Vista machine with all my emails in Windows Mail]

I do...

Open Microsoft Outlook.
Open Windows Live Mail.
In the Windows Live Mail window, click the File button and select Exportand then select Email messages.
Select Microsoft Exchange as the format and then click Next.
You will see a message that all email will be exported to Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange, click Ok to continue.
This is where nothing happens except blink of the screen when I hit "Ok" it just goes back to step 4 where the dialog box pops up to select Microsoft Exchange.

It exports nicely to Microsoft Windows Live Mail but when do Microsoft Exchange it does not even go to step to select All messages, etc

What am I dong wrong and/or is there easier method to get all my email messages to Outlook 2013 please note the Note at top of page of still have emails on Vista machine

Any suggestion - even to purchase a program to do this for me will be a help. As did the export from Windows Mail to Windows Live Mail before - redid it as - when moved my imported folder inbox messages to an folder just under imported folder (as had like 6 for some reason (all in tree form as in subfolders) all me messages subjects remained the same however the message itself all read the same thing - strange I know.

Thanks ahead of time,
David

A:Windows Live Mail to MS Outlook 2013

What worked for me was a program called Address Magic Plus. Like you, I was trying to go from Windows Live to Outlook and this did it for me. The Plus version exports & imports your address book, email, etc. It was worth it to me. It supports many different email formats so you can use it for other programs if you decide to change later on. It can be found at: http://www.connectedsw.com/Overview/57262

16 June was the date MS started migrating Outlook.com accounts to the sync protocol supported by all MS messaging products.

POP3 and IMAP are still supported.

Two of my three Outlook.com accounts have been migrated. The symptom on my machine was that I could not connect to the server - sometimes, this just requires trying to connect again or entering your password in the dialog.

Expecting some transition issues, I tried the above and then visited Outlook.com.
POP was disabled

If you use POP3 in WLM, you'll need to configure POP3 support again in Outlook.com after your account has been updated.
Settings > Options > POP and IMAP


I don't have any WLM acounts that use IMAP. The only thing I see that has changed is the server address, but I don't think that is a required change right now though it might be in the future if MS consolidates all servers to one server.
imap-mail.outlook.com
Port: 993
Encryption method: SSL
The image shows my Outlook.com POP settings, you might not want to allow apps/devices to delete messages. That setting adds a layer of protection - a delete in a client moves the eMail to a special POP folder, you have to visit Outlook.com to actually delete the mail. It's sort of redundant if you configure the client to NOT delete mail on the server, but .....

Note that the server addresses have changed, the previous pop.live.com and smtp.live.com, ports and secure settings still work though.
The one interesting change is on SMTP -... Read more

I know just enough to mess things up so please be patient. Old computer Win XP and Outlook Express quit working. Purchased a new computer with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail, Micro Center suggested try to remove old HD and use an USB to IDE adapter to recover letters, photos etc. Worked like a charm Tried to recover OE mail and import into WLM. Followed directions I found on the web to find the OE .dbx files on the old drive. After much searching and drilling down I found the .dbx files in local settings, application data etc.copied them to a scandisc cruzer. I opened WLM and went to the import mail, it asked where to find files and I went to browse and the drive that scandisc was in, now the problems begin. The browse window in WLM finds the drive but shows nothing on it. Check the computer for that drive and inbox, sent and all the rest are there but it will not show up in the WLM browse window. I created a new file on the scandisk and placed all the .dbx files in it now back to WLM import, the browse window finds the new file I created great next I get an error message "No messages can be found in this folder or another application is running that has the required files open" I could use some advice on what I'm doing wrong, thanks

Hey guys

So apparently at least Outlook should have the ability to run scripts when it finds a certain keyword in incoming mail, but I cannot find the option for it? Some help please?

And may it be possible on WLM as well?

Thanks alot!

A:Getting Outlook (or Windows Live Mail) to run scripts

In Outlook, you can do this by means of a rule.

Look under Tools > Rules and Alerts... > Email Rules tab, then click "New Rule..." and you will see a number of ready-made templates and also the opportunity to start from a blank rule.

If you take the blank rule option, for instance by choosing "Check messages when they arrive", you'll see that "with specific words in the body" is one thing you can ask Outlook to look out for.

You can tell Outlook to perform specific actions when it sees the word you specify, like deleting the message, or filing it in a particular folder, and so on. One of the options is for Outlook to run a script, which sounds like what you are looking for

I have the same problem on both WLM and OE. Occasionally an incoming email will not open, but will give the message "Please wait while Windows configures Office 2000 Small Business". I don't have Office 2000 on the computer, though I think I did when I first got the computer, before I upgraded to Office 2007.

After that screen I then get a series of windows popping up and depending on the sequence in which I click the red crosses in the top corner of them or the cancel button it results in it either closing down the utility or letting me open the email as though nothing had happened. I haven't established a common theme in which emails it does this to and which it doesn't; it seems quite random, but there is probably a common cause I haven't found.

Can any one shed any light on what is happening here and more importantly how I can stop it happening?

Also, does anyone know the exact process for setting up WLM for a [email protected] email address. I am struggling with this, being a first attempt for me.

Thanks everyone,

A:Setting up Windows Live Mail from XP Outlook Express

You can export from Outlook Express and Import into Windows Live mail. Just note that teh email will NOT be in your inbox. THey will be found below in a "Storage Folders" folder with many subfolders you may have to dig through to find. This should make it easy to set up the account, it has links to find mail server names depending on where you live:

I held out and downloaded Windows 10 on the last day it was going to be free. I?ve been having some email issues ever since. Some have been solved; one has been a toothache.

Although Microsoft wants to wean people off of Windows Live Mail in favor of the built in mail interface in Windows 10, I want to keep using WLM.

I need two email accounts set up on WLM. One I have set, a IMAP account (a Time Warner Roadrunner account) which is working properly and the other an outlook.com email account which isn?t. (All the settings on the two accounts are IDENTICAL with the exception of the server names)

The OUTLOOK account is also set a IMAP and the setting are correct as I can send and receive emails?both properly going through the proper server and being able to be read in my hand held device and on the outlook.com web site.

The problem is I can?t get folders to populate in WLM on that account, so I can?t see (read) incoming mail from there, nor do I have a SENT folder to verify that my emai ?went.?

The step which I can not get to happen in to ?DOWNLOAD FOLDERS?, i.e. the ?Inbox?, ?Drafts?, ?Sent Items?, ?Junk E-mail?, and ?Deleted Items? folders.

There is a link to click to download those folders (?Windows Live Mail needs to download the folders before you can read the messages in this account. To download the folders, click DOWNLOAD link?)but it churns and churns and churns then finally times out with an error message that reads:

Now that Windows Live Mail 2012 is now on death row, I've successfully added my three Hotmail accounts to my Outlook 2013 client.

When one opens WLM, an indicator appears beside each account to show the number of new emails for the particular account.

This doesn't appear to happen in Outlook 2013 - anyone know how this can be done - it would save having to open each account in turn to see if emails are present.
