I had a crash on my Vista computer. Put a new drive with Windows 7 on it and made the old drive a slave. All my old email message are still, naturally, on the old drive. How do I get them into the Windows Live Mail program. I can find them on the old drive but do not know where to copy them on the Windows 7 drive. Help.

Thanks Rick

Are you Referring to Microsoft Office as your email program. Windows 7 doesn't have a default mail program in its initial installation. This is how you import messages to windows live mail program (look at buttom for steps) http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows...ndows-live-mail

First of all it depends what kind of e-mail program you used with windows vista. If you have used Microsoft office then it would be saved as pst files. Type *.pst in search windows and it will open all the pst files. you have to check in which location in old harddrive it is saved. Then import it from that location.
