Outlook.com has built in features to do this by using your email client.  Otherwise you can do it the manual method of exporting which would copy your mail to outlook.com.

Here is a general guideline on both methods.

Thanks Sage for the Useful information. In fact,  I had no issue moving emails from  my webmail such as, Gmail, Yahoo,.... to Outlook.com. However, my problem is how to move my old pop3 emails other than Yahoo or Gmail which I use more frequently . I have created many subfloders and it will be very difficult to move each folder separately.looking for some tools or less time consuming way to do transfer my archived emails to outlook.com

Ok, when you said windows mail I figured it was windows live mail and not a POP3 like a pst file (if that's what it is).  There are a couple methods depending on what software you have available but if necessary you can use the outlook Hotmail connector.  If you have outlook there is another method but here are a few more for PST files.

Hi Sage, I am so sorry for taking long time to reply. In fact, you have sent some useful information. However, I had to create Tens of new subfolders manually before I was able to move old message to them.
