How do I import messages from Outlook 2002 into Live Mail?

New laptop has win7 and I want to save all my old emails from Outlook2002. They are on the same computer now, but Live Mail doesn't offer Outlook 2002 as an import option. I tried Outlook Express option and it did not recognize the files when selecting a folder

Solution found- Mailstore.com

Third party software allowed me to save, convert then transfer all files as desired.

It was quite self-explanatory as well.

There is no import/export functionality to/from Outlook/WLM so your option would be to add the WLM/HotMail account to O'2002(XP) and copy items from one folder to another

To that end - follow the following process for O'XP (assuming this still works - don't have O'2002/XP handy to verify)

Once the account is setup - follow the same procedure as described here for O'2010 ignoring the elements related to the Hotmail connector - process is the same otherwise in terms of copying/moving items

Given that this is a question about the functionality of Windows Live Mail - follow-up questions should be posted in the forum applicable to WLM
