I have a customer that had a Vista system running WinMail and wanted to upgrade to Win 7 - so I reformatted the drive and loaded Windows 7.  Before doing this however, I backed up everything - I did an Export of all the folders into a folder called "WinMail" - when I look at the files, they are all .eml and not sure how to get them back into anything else.  All his contacts were in a contacts folder so thought I could have just imported them into something else?  He was thinking of going to using live mail but open to anything else that would import these files in effortessly.  Thoughts?  Suggestions?

Most mail clients should just be able to open the eml files. You should also just be able to import those eml files using the client's import function.

I tried to setup a Hotmail account and there was not any option to import it there - just had outlook and .csv file

I use WinMail in Win7, no problem.
If you look in the Program Files\Windows Mail folder, you'll see it's already installed, just disabled.

See the tutorial on sevenforums.com

OE-QuoteFix even works with it.

Hotmail isn't a mail client.
