    Can I move emails in Windows Live Mail to Mozilla Thunderbird?


    Got a new computer. Old one used Windows Live Mail but can't get it working on the new one. Is it possible to move my emails from WLM into Thunderbird?

    Hi, it's fairly easy to find this discussed: e.g.
    email - How to import Windows Live Mail mails into ThunderBird? - Super User

    Note there are comments that both use dfferent formats.

    Another approach I use years ago to do something similar was to use a free email archive program to back up and restore the emails. E.g. MailStore Home (free)
    MailStore Home Help

    KLS Mail Backup addresses profiles and contacts etc
    KLS Mail Backup - Freeware Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, Firefox backup

    I have used Windows live mail to PST Converter Software which can easily convert EML file into PST format without losing any data and convert single as well as multiple EML file at a one time.It also convert Windows Live Mail, Outlook Express, Mozilla Thunderbird and Apple email and uses EML to PST file format.This software is well compatible with Outlook Outlook 97, 98, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2010, 2007 and 2013 and 2016.
