How Do I Effectively Transfer Windows Live Mail: WLM ►WLM?
This thread started in the Windows Live Forum at How Do I Effectively Transfer Windows Live Mail: WLM ?WLM - Microsoft Community
It was suggested by ZigZag3143x
(Wanikiya & Dyami ~ Team-ZigZag) that I might find my solution by coming here.
I am exporting the email folders from my old Windows 7 computer using Windows Live Mail Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3555.0308) and importing them to a new Windows 7 laptop using WLM Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3538.0513). Seems straightforward enough however not all my email nor folders came across. I do have a lot of email & folders, being somewhat of a packrat.
The Export/Import process gives me some of the Folders, with some of the emails, but it is all very messy ... and incomplete. Subfolders are erratic. I have looked around for answers but can’t find any.
I was able to get all of my Contacts (& Groups!) into WLM by (eventually) by using the online sync (instead of Exporting a CSV file, which only gave me A – L names), but it hasn’t been cooperative with my emails.
? = What do I do to get *all* of my email into WLM? Is there some sort of ‘sync’ with the Skydrive or WLMessenger I’m not aware of?
Since then, I have tried the uninstalling of Windows Live Essentials ... but it didn't uninstall ... even though I applied MS Fixit to it a couple of dozen times (okay, that might've been too much, but the person suggesting it said to keep doing it until it was gone). I have since done a "critical fix" on WLE and thought I would come to this forum to see if there's any solutions.
FWIW: I have copied the WLM folders from both the old & new computers to discreet locations in anticipation of a solution that will allow me to go that route. Or ... perhaps I need to install Windows Essential 2012 in my new computer? Or would this be after finding a true solution?
