Hello Roman,
You can import windows live mail data into Outlook by manual method as discussed in the post.

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29015345/Windows-Live-Mail-to-Outlook-2010-Windows-10.html

But this method requires Windows live mail for import process.

So, If you want to import eml file into Outlook without Windows live mail then you can try this software.

You can use the free Import Messages from EML Files utility for that. Just specify a folder with Live Mail's EML files, target Outlook folder and the tool will do the rest. Please note that I recommend this tool because I'm one of the developers.

You can also install Outlook on the old computer and ask it to import the mail. Then just move the PST file to the new computer.

What Martine Andrue suggested in the first link is the best course of action.
If you try (which you probably already did) to just drag and drop EML files into Outlook you will see that you will never see the body content.

So using Outlook with an Exchange account and Windows Live open you can export directly into that Exchange mailbox.
This is the solution I would recommend.  https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29015345/Windows-Live-Mail-to-Outlook-2010-Windows-10.html#a42087577

This is what I do with my exported content from Mimecast.

HI,

There could be two ways to import WLM EML files to Outlook PST, Either it could be done manually or by using third party tool. To do manual conversion you can follow the steps given in this blog.
or you can go for tool directly to convert Windows live mail files to Outlook 2013.

Hope it might be helpful to you.
