Live Mail - Importing Messages From .pst File


I recently purchased a new computer which runs windows 7. My email program is windows live mail.

My old computer had windows xp, and i used outlook as my email program. I saved all my email messages from outlook (old computer) into a ". Pst" file on an external hard drive, before wiping my old computer's hard drive clean. I need help transferring (or extracting) my messages from my . Pst file, into windows live mail (new computer).

So, to summarize:
1. Old outlook email messages stored in a . Pst folder in an external hard drive
2. New computer runs windows 7, and email program is windows live mail
3. I want to transfer my old emails (stored in . Pst file) into my new computer.

How can i accomplish this task?

Importing .pst File From Outlook 2002 To 2007 - Access Denied

Importing outlook 2002 exported . Pst file (using xp, to usb drive), into outlook 2007 (running windows 7. File copied to this laptop, under my documents). File access permission denied.

. Pst file laptop #1:

Exported from outlook 2002
Using xp
Saved on portable usb drive

. Pst file laptop #2:

Runing windows 7
Into outlook 2007
File saved under my documents, on laptio #2

. Pst file "share" set to "owner/user (administrator), everyone, group - full access"
File it self can not be changed from "locked" to "read" or "read/write" or special permissions; by adding user to this file. File access permission (still) denied. Idea: it has to be an issue with "changing ownership or security permissions"

Importing Outlook Express 6 Mail Into Live Mail

This has been addressed many times before, but i'm hitting errors each time i try to perform an import. I've pointed win7's live mail in the direction of a perfectly-good folder contain both xp's outlook express 6 *. Dbx files, and have imported these files into outlook and exported them to a *. Pst file (into the same folder).

When attempting either import i'm receiving the same message: "no messages can be found in this folder or another application is using the files".considering the process is so simple i can't work out what i'm doing wrong.

Start Live Mail Without Importing Any Email

How to start windows live mail without importing any email? I have just downloaded windows live mail for the purposes of creating some screenshots for a service i am providing. I just want to run the program, without importing any of my old email out of outlook (which takes up many gb's), however windows live mail seems to insist on importing all of my old mail when i start it.

As my old mail folders are so large, windows live mail basically just freezes, and there is nothing i can do except close it using the task manager. Is there some way to start windows live mail without it insisting on importing old email?By the way, i really think windows should come with the old windows mail, which just is a far superior email product to windows live mail in my opinion.

Importing Contacts From Outlook Express To Live Mail

I'm replacing my old xp pc with a new win 7 pc. Anyone know how to import contact lists from separate oe email identities into windows live mail without the contacts getting combined together? I have a personal and business email address, and like to keep contacts separate. I tried separate email user accounts with different passwords, but the contacts still combine. I assume a separate login account on the pc will let me run two separate wlm applications, but that a big hassle.

Importing Outlook Express Address To Live Mail Contacts

I am upgrading to a new computer. I ran the transfer program but the address book did not come over correctly. All the address appear to be there, but i had them in several different folders for organization. The folders did not transfer over. I have tried to export from the old computer and import to the new one. I have tried to export as a csv file and import, but the same thing happens. All the addresses show up, but the sub-folders do not. Is there a way to get the subfolders to transfer over?

Accessing Messages Imported In Live Mail

I am migrating from outlook express 6 (oe6) to windows live mail (wlm). So i changed the location of store in oe6 and imported the folders in wlm. It seemed to import them ok. But i can't access the messages in wlm? I even looked in "imported folder" under "storage folders" but the mail messages are not there.

I tried another thing. I changed the store location in wlm. It gave a message that it is copying 17k messages (which is about what i had in all the folders i had imported) into the new location, so i know they are there.

(1) how do i access those messages in wlm?
(2) i only see edb and some other files in the wlm store location but not the neatly organized folders that i imported from oe6?

Pdf File Association Not Found In Live Mail

If a message received in live mail on a windows 7 home premium 64 bit machine contains a pdf file attachment, that attachment cannot be opened from live mail. Word file attachments and others can be opened.

When the attempt to open the pdf file attachment is made, the message informs that "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. " If the file is saved to the local computer, it can be opened normally, as the file association is correct. This is confirmed by typing assoc .pdf in a command window and receiving the response ".pdf=acroexch.document". How can opening pdf documents from live mail be accomplished without saving them first.

Office 2003 Archive.pst File Problem

Fresh install of win 7 home edition 64 bit. Office 2003 installed ok after emulating xp. Imported all . Pst information without any real problems except for the archive. Pst file. This file is older and large, so i elected to rename it and attempt to then create a new archive. Pst file based on procedures posted on numerous forums and websites. None of these procedures worked and when i am prompted to archive my new install of office 2003 i am unable to do so.

As best i can tell, i have all the required administrator authorities. I have not changed any registry information as suggested on some websites. Office 2003 has been updated to all current service pack updates. On an identical computer and install in my wife's computer, she can archive by adding to her older archive file, but we cannot create any new archive files in her application either.

Open File - Security Warning Messages

How can i get rid of those annoying insipid "open file - security warning" messages that drive me nuts every time i execute a program? I've set my user account control to the lowest setting, but those messages still pop up. Isn't there some way to stop them short of opening every program on the computer and un-checking the "always ask before opening this file" box?

Live Mail - Only Get Mail As Administrator

I have a hp desktop that came with vista and was upgraded to windows 7. I had a hard job getting any windows live mail. I can only get mail if i log in as an administrator. I think it has something to do with permissions and parent permissions and a few other things i don't understand. I have tried to change a few settings in the properties box and a couple of them have told me if i continue with the change i fooled with i would never see e-mail again. If i just try to start it normally it says it is configuring mail and just disappears. The only thing it really screws up is that i can't send articles and papers via e-mail.

Live File System Will Not Save File

Live file system will not save file!Windows 7 and udf will copy several files and then you get to the last file which is 700 meg and the space free bar under the dvd rw drive shows 1. 2 gig left. The copy starts and runs till about 350 meg left then it slows down all the way to 17 kbs and also till 10 k was left on the dvd. By this time about 5 hrs have gone by and the copy window has showed 1 hr left for 3 hrs. The cancel button won't work task manager when used will crash the system. You can force a shut down but then you have to reactivate norton with your purchase code. A search of the internet for me was no help at all.

Live Mail

I have a desktop and a laptop that are both running windows 7 home premium. I thought i would try using windows live mail and i really like. The only problem i have is that i want to be able to access my emails on both computers. How do i do this? I want to be able to create a 'mirror' of my desktop one. I'm using hotmail. And is there a way to stop the emails from getting deleted from the hotmail server? So i can still go onto hotmail.com and see my emails? If i haven't made it clear, please ask me for more information.

Live Mail Gripe

Have upgraded to live mail withy w7 and find one thing very annoying. I use mailwasher to screen my email before i bring it into the computer. I set live mail to not check automatically because that's what mailwasher does. After a period of time live mail checks anyway. It also always checks when it comes out of hibernation. When i asked ms tech support about why it does that, i was told it was built into live mail. Really?

Why should ms decide whether i want to check mail automatically and why do they have the checkbox to turn it off if some software writer thinks i should do it even if i don't wnat to? Does anyone know of a work around or way to turn this off permanently?

Live Mail Signatures

I have set up live mail with a number of e-mail accounts. Each account has its own signature stating the address of the individual e-mail account and the url of my website. All of the signatures show up in the 'insert > signature' option and the correct signature for the e-mail account can be inserted into the e-mail body.

If i choose the 'add signatures to all outgoing e-mails' in 'tools > options > signatures', a new e-mail will open with the default e-mail address signature (as expected). However, clicking the 'from' button in order to choose a different account from which to send the e-mail doesn't change the signature. Should it?

Live Mail Not Readable

I have been working with windows 7 review candidate and just recently upgraded to windows 7 premium edition via upgrade from vista. I had been using windows live mail. Once the upgrade was complete my mail appeared to work properly however, i am unable to open mail that was received prior to the upgrade, i am getting a message that "message cannot be found. The contents of this message cannot be found".

However all of the mail that been received after the upgrade is readable. How can i read the mail that was received earlier. Is there someway to recover these emails as they do appear in my "in-box" folder.

Live Mail Problems

I recently bought lenovo g 460 and windows 7 and downloaded windows live mail. I had been using outlook express 6 / windows xp on my old computer. I imported my old mails into windows live mail.
I noted following problems:

1) some folder names in windows live mail were changed automatically and not same as outlook express 6.

2) for some old outlook express 6 imported emails, when the emails on the preview pane and reading pane are different and the problem remains the same on clicking the preview pane. Simply, while i see an email dated 10 march 2010 from mr x with subject a but on reading pane, it is dated 7 jan 2010 from mr y with subject y. As such, i have lost few important emails.

3) to my surprise the same problem persists for new emails received on windows live 7. Temporarily, for new emails i have solved the problem by forwarding all emails to a web-based mail. But there must be a solution.

Problems With Live Mail

I am running windows live mail under windows 7 professional to access my aol email accounts, which are on an imap basis. I am using a brand new laptop that has a 1tb hard drive and 8gb of ram, so size and speed are not an issue. The first annoying problem i have is that every time i close out mail, i get a message saying it is purging folders. Five seconds later i get a an error message saying the server has disconnected, so the job did not complete. I then need to close those windows.

Secondly, when i am replying to messages, it sometimes takes 5 to 10 seconds or more for the wheel to stop spinning. If there was an attachment to the original email, the message i am sending does not disappear, even after it is sent, which makes me wonder if it has been sent. It also takes an excessively long time to delete messages.

I have used several other email programs in recent years, including outlook express and have never encountered any problems using the same aol accounts and format. Are there any setting changes i need to make, or are these problems known glitches between windows live mail and an aol imap account?
