I have bought a new computer with Windows 7 preinstalled. Before setting it up I backed up all my outstanding emails (204 .dbx files) and email addresses (one .wab file size 176kb) from my old computer on to a memory stick. I now want to import them into Windows Live Mail. I have gone through the recommended procedure for the emails, but only some of them have come across. I have been totally unable to import the addresses. The only procedures I have found seem to relate to a different version of Live Mail because they tell me to click on things that don't appear on my screen! Can anyone help?

It occurs to me that maybe not all the messages are being imported because I haven't imported the relevant contact details. Could this be the case?

By the way I can't go back to the old computer as it has completely died, which is why I replaced it.

Dear All,

I have been using windows live mail since quite a few time now.
While I logged in to my msn messenger today it asked me to update as there was a new version available.
I did that and alongwith messenger it updated and installed other programs as well.
It updated my WLM and gave it a new look. I NOW HAVE VERSION 2009 (BUILD 14.0.8064.0206)
I was happy to see the inbuilt calender which was not there earlier.
But what it did with my contacts was shoking.
I have 1197 contacts in my Windows Live Mail Contacts.
It is showing all 1197 names but only showing emails of about a 100 contacts. Rest all email addresses are lost, only their names are there.

Please tell me how this problem can be resolved and why did this happen?

I am eagerly awating your reply.




A:Problem on updating Windows Live Mail / LOST EMAIL ADDRESSES OF CONTACTS

Hi All,

This same problem happened to me, plus I have some additional info.

Just like the earlier poster, I am a longtime user of Windows Live Mail. I was prompted to update and did so, and liked a number of improvements.

However, the email addresses of my contacts had been removed, along with all info other than just the contact names. The number of contact names is unchanged, and as far as I can tell, all the same names are there. The few email addresses that do remain (about 20 out of 500) were all used recently, AFTER the first launch of the previous WLM version on this computer, which is new since February. My guess is that these email addresses were automatically added per the preference setting "add email addresses to contacts after third reply."

Here is the added info: when I tried to import my contacts again from a CSV file, it didn't work. A window came up saying that the program was updating my contacts, and it took a REMARKABLY long time, but after it finished, I was left with the same scenario. My CSV file is still good, but WLM will not work with it.

I'm out of ideas. Please help.

Thanks to all in advance.

evening alll...new to site and hope that someone can help me...
i run my own business and was using outlook express to send mails to clients.
i have a database with 20,000 email addresses and when i wanted to contact a certain area i would block email them.
basically i would copy from my excel database and paste into the BCC section on outlook and then press send....simple....
problem now is that my netbook broke and so i have a new one and set up windows live mail....well brother did....all was well sending mails and recveiving them but tonight i tried to copy multiple email adresses from the same database and put them into the BCC section on windows live mail and it will not send.

BAsically when I paste then adresses it is stacking the names above each other with no semicolon between them. If I just put a coupe of the adresses in and then put a semi colon between the adresses the mail will send..

question is how do i send mails to multiple users (50 adresses at a time)

i really look forward to hearing from anyone

many thanks

A:Export mail and contacts from Outlook 2007 to Windows live mail 2012?

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.

PS It added the account but I have to get the POP and STMP settings right first.

I'm trying to transfer my Windows Live Mail e-mail contacts to Hotmail. I've converted them all to a csv file (5.65kb). When I import them to Hotmail only the names get transferred.....not the e-mail addresses. Any ideas? Thanks
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.

A:Export E-mail contacts from Windows Live Mail to Hotmail

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.

A:Windows live mail export

Hi andsome, I suggest getting a Windows Live ID by creating a Hotmail dot Com account, use it to sign in to Windows live Mail. Export your contacts in .csv format then import to new account. Now you will never lose them. If using other account/s, it/they can be added to WLM, use POP to access them if possible. You can delete the Hotmail account if you want.
P.S. I'm using WLM last release version of 2009, its far superior than the latest version. I have a copy if you want it.

I installed Windows Live Mail over an existing Windows Mail on my Vista laptop and that went fine and I was able to import the old contacts. But now I want to export those same contacts to Windows Live Mail on another (XP) laptop but I can't find a way to do it. There doesn't seem to be any way to transfer, save, or backup Windows Live Mail contacts. I was thinking I should be able to save the file then copy it over my network to the other computer but I can't find it. Anyone know how to do this?

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.

Please note that this is not Windows Live (Hotmail) but the offline Windows application with that name. I find Windows Live Mail as a great way to manage my email, I want to manage my contacts there too. However, all my contacts are currently loaded on my iPhone (I have the contacts manually created on the phone a long time ago).

Thanks for your suggestions.

A:How to export iPhone contacts to Windows Live Mail?

If you want to directly export the contacts use a small application intended to run on your PC called CopyTrans Contacts.

1. Run the tool on your computer and connect your iPhone. You can download the program from here: export iPhone contacts

2. Once your iPhone contacts appear, drag and drop a selection to a folder on your PC

3. Select the type of contact files you wish your iPhone contacts to get exported in. Windows Live Mail recognizes Windows Contacts, so select that format

4. Your iPhone contacts will be saved to your PC. Now go to your Windows Live Mail application and import the contacts from the folder on your PC where you saved them in

I'm working on a laptop with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail 2012 is not exporting email properly.

There are 4,008 messages in the Inbox folder but the export function will only copy out ONE message. A web search finds that this function of WLM 2012 is very badly broken and apparently Microsoft is not going to fix it. No difference in its dysfunction if it's set to work offline.

Exporting from Outlook then into WLM worked fine, but WLM can only (not) export to WLM and Exchange, which requires being on a network with an Exchange server.

A:How do I get Windows Live Mail 2012 export to work?

Open the blue File menu
Select Export email > Email messagesSelect Microsoft Windows Live MailChose the export destination folder, [Make New Folder] is a bit tricky, the Folder: field doesn't always automatically get updated, I just click on the folder above it, then click on the folder I created. As long as both the highlighted folder and the name of the folder in the Folder: filed match, you're good to go.
Press [OK]Make sure the radio button All folders is the active selection.
Press [Next]The export should begin and every eMail message should be in the destination folder you chose.

I've given up fighting Windows Live Mail [the client-side version] many bugs and have moved on. But I need to get the Contacts, and then the folders/Messages. Every time I attempt a .CSV Export of the Contacts WLM crashes [hangs, spins up CPU, does not resolve itself]. Anyone know the cause or cure for this?

Failing a cure of this yet-another-bug, where is the Contacts store? Anyone know its file Extension? how to safely copy until I can figure out how to extract and use?

Apparently WLM does not like any copies of OE on a system... it monkeys with Outlook Express system files when it cranks up - I guess they share stuff under the hood?.. dunno. Attempts to get answers to these various issues on "Microsoft Answer" are time-wasted, in my experience.

Hello everyone, I'm REALLY frustrated so bear with me.

I have Office 2007 Home & Student Edition. I use Windows Live Mail for my email client.

I installed the office product, and created a new Word Document.
I click on the Office Button on top, select SEND TO EMAIL.. expecting Windows Live Mail to show up (set as my default mail program.) Instead I get this error:

Logon Failed. You Must log on to Microsoft Exchange to Access your
address book. Error Code: "unspecified Error"

So I figure, Ok, maybe Office 2007 is new (even thought it's 2010 now), and there might be some fixes. I downloaded the SP2 for Office 2007, thinking this must be a common problem.. as my computer is BRAND new.... I JUST installed Windows Live Mail on it... and Just installed Office 2007. I haven't had it for more than a few hours.

I install the SP2 Patch for OFF2007 fine. Rebooted. Then tried again.
No Joy.
I do some searching and find many Microsoft threads which indicate how to "use a Non-MS Email client with Office 2007" - Now wait! Isn't Windows Live Mail an MS product?

So then, I find many other forums where they indicate you can click SEND TO EMAIL 3 times and it will work. So... Just to confirm the mind of the hive is alive and well.. I try it... Success! But, this does NOT solve the problem! I need this to WORK!

I even try with Send document as PDF and it still takes 3 times to work. WTH?

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

I noticed that my WLM categories were somehow corrupted and missing some names. When I click the category on the left, in the list of names on the right they are all there. However when clicking edit I notice some addresses are missing. They are also missing when attempting to send mail. When I add the missing addresses and click save they are not actually saved. I tried deleting the category and making a new one and that seemed to work for a while but the next time I logged onto WLM the same names were missing again.

Your advice would be apreciated.

A:Windows Live Mail Categories Not Saving All Addresses

The problem seems to have been solved. I suspect the contacts store in Windows live mail was somehow corrupted. When I composed a message on the web interface the group contacts worked correctly. Also when I used Windows Live mail on my laptop signing into the same user the goup contacts also worked well. I figured I needed to rebuild the contacts folder on my desktop computer from the good source on the Microsoft server.

I closed WLM. I found the windows live store folder which is located at:

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts

I renamed the "Contacts" folder to "old_Contacts" and restated WLM which rebuilt the contacts folder from the Microsoft server. That seems to have solved the problem.

From what I read you can't do that anymore in Windows Mail.

I think you can add all the accounts, which will send the emails from all the accounts to the inbox

So what you would do is create multiple inboxes and then set rules so that you assign a inbox to only accept emails from a certain account

I recently migrated my Windows Mail profile, messages, and identity to a new system and all but one aspect is working correctly.

Email server setup: I have my own domain and use emails handles tailored to the site I'm using to keep track of where the emails are coming from (i.e. [email protected], [email protected], etc) and the web server then forwards all of those emails to my main account ([email protected]).

Problem: Since the migration, Windows Mail will download all the messages without any problems, but, crashes each and every time I try to forward or reply to an email sent to one of those made up email handles. The only emails it will allow me to reply to or forward are those sent to the installed account ([email protected]).

I assume this has to be due to Windows Mail being confused on the reply to account, but, I'm not sure where or how I would fix this. Any suggestions?

I didn't notice this before today. I'm running the 64 bit version of Windows 10 Pro, fully up to date, as well as the latest version of Windows Live Mail. I have a bunch of storage folders that I've created for email, so my actual inboxes are pretty much always empty as any mail I want to keep gets put into a storage folder.

When I do a search inside the program, all it's searching are the email subjects, not the actual contents of the messages.

Any idea how to fix this? I know this was an issue in the 64 bit version of Windows 7, as seen here.....


.....but I'd have thought this would have been fixed by now! Is that fix still valid for Windows 10, or is there another solution? I really don't want to have to switch to another email client if I can help it.


A:Windows Live Mail only searching email subjects, not email contents

I have been having the same trouble, which was just noticed...
Windows Live Mail does not search "contents" of messages anymore... just searches names and message subject line.
Hope to find an answer as I hate to switch to another mail client, but I absolutly need the search functionality.

I am using Windows Live Mail to send and receive emails.

Some people do not receive my email. I had noticed that it seemed to be mail sent to hotmail, but it seems that it is more general than that!
I do not know what to do.

One odd thing is, that they will receive it if I forward it to my blackberry and then send it off there!

I have an email I get on a regular basis that I can see who it's from and the subject line but the body of the email is blank. I have problems with it in WLM but I can view it just fine in web mail and from my iPhone. Not sure if it's an issue on the end of the person who's sending it or an issue with WLM but since I can view it completely in web mail and on my iPhone I would think it's something with WLM. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

A:Body of email not showing in one particular email in Windows Live Mail

Hi, I finally was able to talk with someone from the place that was sending the email in question I was having issues with. They found out their emails are not compatible with WLM but are working on a resolution. I'm not sure what kind of email service they're using but it's not like WLM is some obscure mail client. Anyway, I'm marking this as solved even though I've received a few emails from them since and still having the issue of nothing in the body of the message. Now that they've figured out what the issue is I hope they fix it soon.

Hi, my name is Kyle, I am new to this Forum.

I have seen a similar post which seems to be the solution to the problem I face, however, I cannot post on the topic for some reason - I would assume because it is marked as solved.

I needed to post in the topic for clarity, as I do not quite understand how to use the solution. I also cannot send PM's or Personal Emails and was told to not post Tech Questions within the Visitor Message section on a User Profile, so I have not been able to contact the user that offered the solution directly.

Therefore I am creating a new post.

I'm in the middle of capturing data - data in the form of emails dating back to 2009. This data is required to create a email database of all our previous and current clients.

Currently I am manually going through every email contained within a folder in my inbox and entering each email address into an excel sheet. This is incredibly time-consuming, as one might imagine and of-course I would like the quick-fix solution.

In the solution offered in the aforementioned post http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/864373-solved-save-all-email-addys.html, there was reference made to software called NK2, which, by the sounds of it, I can somehow use to extract these email addresses and then import them into an excel database - problem being that I do not know how to use this program.

I would love for someone to guide me through the process!

Recently have not been able to receive emails-some do come over but not about 90%.  I have called and talked to my regular emailers so I know the first statement is true.  I have called my internet provider several times in the last 3 days but they cannot find anything wrong other than telling me it probably is my email provider (Windows Live Mail).  I am now getting a pop-up that states I must be on line and/or that I am working off line and do I want to go on line?  The program does not allow me to answer as when I click on yes or no, the pop up keeps returning..
I have also talked with their Security section thinking that maybe they flagged my account for some reason as one of internet provider persons stated they may have done.  I have been assured that that was not done.
Oh yes-I do check Web Mail and one that was sent to me today is in Web Mail.  That was a test from my Internet Provider-it just will not come over to my Live Mail!
I have NO problems sending emails-ONLY receiving them!
Is there an upgrade or driver that I need?  Maybe I need to switch email accounts to GMail or HotMail?
Thank you to anyone who responds.  I am very frustrated!

A:Email from Windows Live Mail

I don't know anything about Live Mail and how it works...but I would just uninstall/reinstall it.  There may be damaged files and the uninstall/reinstall would eliminate that suspicion.
I believe that they also have a forum...if it happens to you, chances are it's happened to someone else and come up before.

A:Windows Live Mail email

do you have a question ?

Read other 1 answers

I have a problem and a question re WLM. The problem is twice now in the four months with my new PC several emails could not be opened, moved or deleted. "Message Can Not Be Found" appears in the body. Other emails worked fine.Today I read my email OK, went to other sites etc, came back to email and those very same emails I just read now had the "Message Can not Be Found".
What's happening here and how do I prevent it? The other question regards the "Show Pictures" link. How do I show pictures permanently so I don't have to do it for each email with pictures. I run anti viruses etc regularly. Thanks.

A:Windows Live Mail Email

What type of e-mail account do you have? I get that message occasionally with my IMAP account, as it is still downloading the message.

As for the pictures, I've never seen an option to not prompt. For the record, it isn't about malware. When you load an HTML message, and it downloads the pictures, the sender knows it hit a valid e-mail address, and will continue to spam that address.
