  3. Windows Mail in Vista vs Mail in Windows 10

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    - Are you referring to Windows live mail in Vista and Mail app in Windows 10?

    If you are referring to Mail app, you can only add accounts but you cannot import emails from Windows live mail.

    To import emails from Windows live mail, I suggest you to download Windows Essentials which will include Windows Live mail.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/essentials



    Hope the information helps, if you have any further queries, feel free to post. We are here to assist you.

    Regards,

    Windows 10 Mail App: Import from Windows Live Mail?

    Nigel, mate:

    You may refuse to believe that Microsoft has omitted this basic function, but the reality is that it has omitted it -- so far!

    Currently, there is NO off-line storage built into W10 Mail; the option to create more folders simply creates additional folders within your Outlook.com account.

    MS has stated that they are working on it; no due date.

    If and when they do provide it, they will probably provide a means of importing / exporting from Windows Live Mail, Outlook 201x, etc.

    But, until then, anything that you wish to appear in W10 Mail must be stored within your on-line mailbox.

    And, no matter how many times you ask the question, the answer won't change until MS makes it change!*Doh Sorry!

    Thanks hTcone. I was not seeing all of my e-mail while changing from Live Mail 2012 to the "Mail App". Going to "Sync" helped me see the rest of my e-mails by selecting "All time" (or whatever that was).

    Still not fixed I'm afraid, at least if it is I can't find how? Windows 10 Mail I'm finding not at all intuitive. This is not meant offensively in any way, but it is the worst and most difficult email app that I have ever tried to use. That's going back to 1990 and beyond.

    FelixP, exactly what is "still not fixed"? Please give us more details about what your problems are with W10 Mail, so that we can give you specific advice.

    If you are asking about off-line storage in W10 Mail, it now appears more unlikely, IMNSHO. They're trying to point those users to the Office Outlook application.

    Windows 10 Mail App: Import from Windows Live Mail?

    I was following the thread from above, "How does one Import from Windows Live Mail into the Windows 10 Mail App?". My LiveMail will no longer allow me to delete messages, but I can't find a way to transfer my stored emails to W10 Mail, nor my contacts. Strangely, a list of my folder names within my Inbox has transferred, but sub-folders have become folders, e.g. I have a folder "Family" and sub-folders with family members names under that, but in W10 Mail family members names are folders in their own right and not sub-folders under Family. But all were empty when transferred.
