Question

Q: Can I import saved email messages on a flash drive previously from Windows Mail into Windows Live Mail after installing, NOT UPGRADING, to Widows 7?

I had problems with my Windows and was told to install it again.  However, I lost my Windows CD, so I decided to INSTALL Windows 7.  I copied all emails and other information on flash drives.  I have set up email in Windows Live Mail.  Is there any way to copy/import these saved messages from the prior Windows Mail to Windows Live Mail?

Answer

A:

Saving them that way was not the optimum choice. Create a folder(s) on the Desktop. Copy the messages to that folder. Check the properties. Do they have an eml file extension? If so, you should be able to drag them into a WLMail folder. Without the eml file extension, I have no idea if you can get them in WLMail.
