I was not exactly sure if this was the correct forum to use about importing mail. Since the problem is with windows 7, I thought I'd bring it up here. I am moving the files from a xp computers to windows 7. I copied the identity from outlook express to windows 7. Imported the folders into windows live mail. It does such a poor job. I ended up installing outlook 2007 into the xp machine, just to import the outlook express to a pst file. The outlook express folders would not import into outlook 2007 on the windows 7 machine. Just to get outlook 2007 on the xp machine, I had to make sure at least 700 MB. space was free. The machine only had 100 MB. free. I hope microsoft figures out an easier way. Maybe there is a shortcut I didn't use. Let me know :wacko:

Try giving this a whirl: Migrate from Outlook Express or Windows (Live) Mail to Outlook
