    This is part of "Windows Live" new version plan. Some changes have been made in it, but under the hood it is some what same as Outlook Express of Windows XP. The most efficient and easy way to transfer emails is to use the Export command in Outlook Express to save all messages and contacts in separate files, copy them to the windows 7 PC, then use the Import (File menu) so that data in Windows Mail.

    If you burned previously the backup PST file it has read-only attribute. OR, to be usable by Outlook, the. PST does not have this attribute. So use theWindows Explorer to copy the file to your hard drive and remove the read only attribute (right-click the file, properties then uncheck the attribute "read only", and finally OK).

    • In Outlook, go to the menu File And click Import and export.
    • Choose Import from another program or file Then click Next.

    Import messages into Windows Mail from Outlook Express

    Outlook Express stores your messages in a folder that contains several different .dbx files. These files (folders.dbx, inbox.dbx, outbox.dbx) contain all your messages. Windows Mail cannot import any of these files individually; you must import the entire Outlook Express folder.

    If Windows Mail is unable to import your messages, make sure none of the files in the Outlook Express folder are marked Read only. Open the folder, select all the files, right-click them, click Properties, and make sure the Read only check box is cleared.
