    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
