Please help! I follow the directions to a T: trying to import all my old emails and contacts from Windows Live Mail to Microsoft Outlook. I EXPORT everything to the desktop - but when I try to IMPORT it into Outlook, it either doesn't recognize the Windows Live Mail files I just saved - or it only lets me browse as far as the list of folders. It won't let me get INTO the folders to import those files. Any ideas?? Thank you!

Don't know which directions you are following to a 'T' or if your WLM and Outlook are on the same pc.

It is the folders you either Export or Import and not the individual messages.

Try these instructions that cover different scenarios, and note that on one of scenarios it says: "Don’t use the Import function from within Outlook to migrate your mail. In many cases this will reset the “Received” time and date on a message. Instead, use the export function from with OE, WM or WLM."
