A (beta) version of Messenger live is available.

Download Windows Live Messenger 2011:


On a side note:

The new Windows Live Messenger, differently from previous WLM versions, doesn’t give you the opportunity to modify and alter your nickname or display name . What’s worst is that Windows Live Messenger 2011 will only display your real name and surname which you previously set in your profile when you signed-up. Let’s see together how you can easily modify and add your nickname thanks to this little trick!
The only way to add a nickname to Windows Live Messenger 2011 is to modify your real name and last name. No other ways are possible at this time.

  • Open and login Windows Live Messenger 2011.
  • Click your user name using the small arrow on top of the messenger’s window.
  • Click Edit your Name in the menu.
  • A Windows Live Profile web page will be automatically opened in your browser. Modify or change the First Name and Last Name.
  • Click the Save button.
  • Done!

Recently I decided to use outlook 2007 instead of Windows Mail. I assumed that this was like a walk in the park,  it became an obstacle course.

Follow these steps: (In my situation I went from pc A (vista) to pc B (win7))

1. Export the messages

Choose a location where the messages will be stored and select the desired folders.

After a while, depending on the total of mails, this process is done.

2. install outlook 2007

Speaks for itself.

3. Install Windows Live Mail

Windows 7 does not come with any mailprogram, so I had to download this via the  Windows Live Installer.

4. Import Windows Mail

After the installation we open Windows Live Mail and choose File => Import messages and browse to our previously exported Windows Mail folder.


We see that our mails are imported, although the folders could be messed up. Not a problem, afterwards we put them in the desired location.


5. Export Windows Live Mail
Now we export the mails (again), but we choose for Exchange.


6. Open Outlook 2007

When you open outlook 2007 you’ll notice an extra folder: Storage Folders. In here we find our imported mails.


Notice how the folders are a little bit “scrambled” and do not have the same architecture (Inbox in imported folder in imported folder, etc). Just move the folders to your desired location.

As you can see; just 6 ‘simple’  steps to store your mails in their new environment.
