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.
