  1. Windows 10 Mail App: Migrate from Windows Live Mail?


    When I upgraded my wife's PC I expected her Windows Live Mail settings and data to be migrated to the Windows 10 Mail App, and for this app to become the default.

    Is this migration possible?

    Having said that, I'm not sure I've even found the Mail app!

    :)

    My Windows Live(hotmail) folders don't migrate to the windows mail app! Except the inbox folder. Pop-mail folders stay, i understand, but imap folders which are on a server don't migrate either.

    We are forced by microsoft to use this poor equiped app on 1 july 2016. But there are no proper tools offerred to migrate from Windows Live Mail to the Windows 10 mail app........

  3. I have no idea how to back up my current emails in Windows Live Mail using Windows 10.

    If you upgraded from a previous OS that had windows live mail installed it should have migrated. Go to start>all apps and look under the "W" for windows live mail. Right click it and pin to taskbar.

    If WLM was not on the prior OS or was not migrated install it from the below

    Windows 10 Mail App: Migrate from Windows Live Mail?

    The mail app is shown on the bunch of apps on the start menu.

    Are you using IMAP? Or synchronised accounts such as Outlook.com, Office 365? If so, all your mail and data can easily be added back in.

    If not you should be able to run WLM and use its export functions.
