Exporting Outlook Express Email 2 Win Live Email
Posted on 2014-01-30
Outlook Express v 6
Windows 7 Home Premium
Windows Live Mail
I am helping a customer to decommission a really old troublesome PC.
With the exception of MS Outlook Express Email, everything worked fine, I move all data across, and also install all of the customers’ existing applications on the new PC.
However, my only problem was migration the customs old MS Outlook Express v 6 email across to Windows Live.
The customer has a significant number of sub folders setup in the Outlook express, and it is very important to them to bring that structure across.
They also have a significant number of contacts in Outlook Express, these are very important to them as well.
I tried something like, File, Export, and then it gave me 2 options, email messages and email contacts. The Email Contacts was success.
However, when I tried to export the email messages, I was getting an error message: The export cannot be performed, an error occurred while initializing MAPI
Thank you very much for any help.
