Windows 10: Importing Windows Live Storage folders into Win 10 Mail

    Importing Windows Live Storage folders into Win 10 Mail


    How do I import long-term storage files (with lots of really, really important emails I wish to save) from Windows Live 2012 to the new Windows 10 email program? Can't find any how-to help anywhere so far.

    Thanks!

    That's because it currently can't be done!

    W10 Mail and Calendar app doesn't yet have support for any off-line activity; only on-line sites and their on-line folders.

    Keep watching future updates, and keep running Windows Live 2012 until it does. (A tip for migrating -- Use File/Advanced/Maintenance to move all WLM storage into its own directory, and back it up.)

    Actually from WLM 2012 I used the File/Options/Mail/Advanced/Maintenance/Store Folder to get the setting for storage.

    Details are about halfway down these pages "Moving data to Mail App for Windows - For locally stored emails"
    https://support.office.com/en-us/art...a-f8ec74f8e8fd
    You create folders in an Account maybe Outlook Mail, move the Emails from the Storage folders to folders in an Account.
    The Account in the Mail App is then synced.

    The Mail App does not have local storage folders for users so that's a temporary measure until you find a more suitable Email client.
