  • Am trying to Importing Windows mail(Vista) data by copying the Appdata content to windows live in windows 7).  when I copy and paste the content in windows Mail folder or in windows live mail folder, Live mail does not recognize the account details or the mail stores. Is there any i can successfully import the account settings and mail stores?

  • You can't move your mail store this way. Use the export function in Windows Mail, export to a file, copy the exported file to the Windows 7 computer then use the Windows Live Mail import function to import the file.
