I have found tons of info on how to transfer my email messages and address book using easy transfer.
My problem is that my hard drive is damaged and will not boot.
But I am able to attach it to the computer using a HD enclosure and a usb connection.
Not being able to boot means I cannot export the accounts as a iaf file.
Not being able to start OE means I cannot export messages.
I can see the outlook express files on the hard drive but how do I convert them into a format that Windows Live can import?
Thanks for your help.

If you can locate the files that you need by using the drive in an external enclosure, the easiest method that I can suggest would be to 'Copy' the files from their folder on the damaged drive and 'Paste' them into the proper folder on your current drive.
Please refer to this article on how to import mail from Outlook Express. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows...outlook-express
