I need to import mail messages and settings from Outlook Express 6 on Windows XP SP2 to Windows Live Mail on a new Windows 7 PC.
I attempt to export messages from Outlook Express but I get a message saying that "The Export could not be performed. An error occurred while initializing MAPI".
I changed the Outook Express settings as described in article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/179637/en-us (method 2) but the message remains and I can't go on.
- How can I go on exporting messages?
- Can I just copy the .dbx files and import them in Windows 7?
- Is there any alternate solution?
Outlook is not installed on my PC neither I want to install it.
