    Go to the folder named Windows Mail. There is some folders with names like "Inbox", ... There is some .eml files. Select all the messages in and drop it to inbox folder of outlook express. Messages will be back an other time. Do the same with the other folders and messages.

    If so, navigate to the normal location of Windows Mail boxes. It is the hidden folder C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Local Folders then Inbox, Sent Items, etc.

    Copy the .eml files (not other files such as winmail.fol) to the XP machine via an external device (or a network). Create a folder in Outlook Express (File > New > Folder named, say, Old Inbox), which will initially receive the copied files. Close Outlook Express. Now open both Outlook Express and the folder containing the .eml files and arrange the windows side by side.

    Select (highlight) all the .eml files and drag them (strangely, Copy and Paste will not work) to Outlook Express, either to the new folder name in the left pane or to the folder contents in the right pane. Now open Old Inbox and drag the contents to your usual Inbox.
