Do you mean Windows Live mail, That is part of Windows Live essentials I believe.

Think you can still download it from here. But beware that you do not click on any add ons while doing it.

It is my understanding, although I have been known to be wrong (!), that Live Mail is no longer on the MS servers and can't be downloaded.

You could try Thunderbird click here or a similar program and import your mails.

In windows 10 the Mail App will open .eml files. Try opening the folder then right click an .eml file and select open with Mail.

I am still using it but like you say cannot be downloaded from Microsoft but can from other sources,
