when trying to export messages from windows live mail 2012 on windows 7 computer  the export gets about half way through 33000 messages and just doesn't complete. After waiting at least 45 minutes for something to happen I have to use task manager to close windows live mail.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Download a trial copy of Office 2013
