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.

mail-import

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.

mail-import-1

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

mail-import-2

6. Open Outlook 2007

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

mail-import-3

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.
