I have just had to reinstall Windows Live Mail on my husbands computer (W10) I first exported his emails and they were saved in the Windows Live Mail format (.iaf file.) I am now trying to reinstate the emails but the programme won't open them. Can anybody tell me how to do it please. Thanks

.....exported his emails and they were saved in the Windows Live Mail format (.iaf file.)

An IAF file only contains the settings (servers, username and password, etc) for a specific email account. It doesn't contain any messages.
