Windows Mail to Windows Live Mail in Win 7??

  hawthorn59 04:05 02 Jan 2010


I am thinking of buying a new laptop which will of course have Windows 7 but no email.(I happen yo have a buyer for my 18 month old laptop so its the best option!) I believe one option is to download Windows Live Mail.

However I have a lot of emails and folders etc in Windows Mail that I would really like to keep.

1 Is it possible to export them and then import them into Win Live Mail? Will it recognize them...will folders remail the same etc?

2 In Win Live Mail is thhe folder structure the same, eg can you have folders within folders?

3 I found this site that actually suggests copying Windows Mail files and installing them in Windows 7, ie taking the whole programme and moving it. Is this possible or advisable?

Many thanks
