    How do I get coded WLM emails into Office 365 Outlook?


    I changed from a Windows 7 desktop to a Windows 10 desktop and am using Office 365.

    For emails, I had Windows Live Mail on the old computer but downloaded Outlook for Office 365 on the new one, as I hate Windows Mail for its lack of flexibility. Managed to copy over all my old WLM email from 7 and contact list. However, old WLM emails come out in numeric "codes" only, under each category of email I originally created.

    I have had to convert each WLM email individually on the new computer, one at a time, to fit into Outlook and have transferred 5,000 emails so far this way. However, I have 15,000 more WLM emails to convert into Outlook!

    Is there any programme out there that can convert the rest of my emails in one go that is reliable?

    Please reply not in jargon, as we are seniors and not that computer savvy, but are just desperate converting so many emails. Thank you for your help.

    :)

    How to enable 'send as' in Outlook (Office 365 email)


    Both. In OWA (web app) the users need to select Show from:

    When doing this first time, the new allowed Send As email is not shown in the From drop down list. Users need to right click their usual Send As address and select Remove, then add the new Send As address manually:

    After that the new address will be shown and can be selected from the drop down list.

    In Outlook desktop app users need to manually remove their usual Send As address and add the new one, thereafter the new address will be shown in From drop down list.

    It makes a huge difference. You cannot set your own mailbox as a shared mailbox! It's a big NO!

    In Admin panel, select Users > Active Users, select your name, select Edit in right pane. Now select Email addresses. All addresses listed here (primary and other addresses) cannot be used as shared mailbox:

    If you try you will get an error message telling you it cannot be used:

    You must create the shared mailboxes separately, using any of the existing personal mailboxes is out of the question.

    Create a shared mailbox in O365 admin panel if not already created:

    (Click to enlarge.)

    When done, add members by selecting the mailbox and selecting Edit members on the right pane (#1). When members have been correctly added / removed, select Edit more properties (#2):

    Select Mailbox delegation, remove the user you don't want to give access to the mailbox from Full Access, leave the user in Send As:

    Save the settings.

    That's it. The user gets a notification about missing permissions when trying to open the mailbox, but can still send using the shared mailbox name:
