how to import contacts and emails from Vista into Win Mail 8
Posted on 2012-12-28
I have a client whose Vista PC went belly up. I was able to recover all user files and have placed them on a new Windows 8 PC. However, I can't seem to get the new WinMail 8 to see either the contacts or the old emails.
The contacts and emails were moved over in a raw format, whatever format they were in for use in Windows Mail under Vista. There was no opportunity to export them first.
How do I get this stuff into WinMail 8? It's annoying not having an import function, and placing the contacts into the Contacts folder doesn't seem to work.
