    Importing WLM folders into Windows 10 mail

    I have just learned that sometime in June 2016, email from @hotmail.com or @outlook.com will no longer be retrievable by Windows Live Mail. The suggested solution to this problem is for users with Hotmail or Outlook accounts to switch to the new Mail client
    that is included in Windows 10.

    This is an idiotic move on the part of Microsoft but then we have seen things like this before, (remember Vista and Windows 8?). The new Mail app is not a very good email client but if I will no longer be able to view my Hotmail emails in WLM I have to come
    up with a solution. The problem is that I have created an extensive collection of storage folders in WLM that store mail based on their subject. The new Mail app will be useless to me if I cannot access these folders from within the app.

    I have searched this forum and the rest of the Internet but have not been able to find a way to import storage folders into Windows 10 Mail. Is this possible?

    What I would really like to do is to import my entire WLM store folder into Windows 10 Mail. Hopefully someone can help me with this issue.

    Import mail to windows 10

    You can install WLM on Windows 10. Export all messages and contacts first then Import them into new WLM on Win 10.

    But facing same problem and with no support now for WLM, I switched to Mozzilla Thunderbird for both Windows 7 and Windows 10. It is a free download and is able to import the mail and contacts you exported from WLM.

    Thunderbird is quite similar to WLM, so once installed and configured, you will like it!

    The Windows 10 Mail program is a joke unless you have very few emails and just one account.

    ADDED: You don't mention how you email is now configured in WLM. If it is POP3, then you might consider switching it to IMAP before you transfer to Windows 10. With IMAP, all messages are stored on your ISP servers. When you create the new account in Thunderbird
    (or even Win10 Mail), the messages will automatically download. Downloaded POP messages stored on your computer won't sync like that, but they will if you move them into the new IMAP account on existing Win 7 WLM.

    If you are already using IMAP, just set up your new mail program in Win10 and the mail will all magically be there!

    In both cases, you need to export your contacts from WLM and then Thunderbird can import them. Various other ways if you use w10 mail.
