  • Vista Windows Mail, importing from other programs

    I have the following problem.

    With Vista we have the new mail client 'Windows Mail'. The problem i'm having is that a lot of people here buy the student edition of the new office wich does not include the 'Outlook' version.

    So the problem is that when people were using Outlook Express i just can simply import the contacts and e-mail, no problem. But the thing is, a lot of people here were using Outlook, which makes me unable to import the e-mails and the contact, even when i tries exporting them to the CVS format.

    Does anybody know a solution to the problem when you are using Windows Mail and you want to import contacts and e-mail from outlook ?

    Dear DanDanv,

    I just opened Windows Mail on my Vista Ultimate Edition and under the menu File->Import->Messages I can find Outlook and Outlook Express 6.

    Also under File->Import->Windows Contacts I can find CSV,LDIF,vCard and Outlook Express.

    I think this should be enought for your needs.

      Hi,
      Yes i was aware of the fact that this option is available. But the thing is, i was forgotten to mention this, that when i choose to import let's say as in comma sepperated, i get the message: cannot import, error!

      When i import when choosing 'outlook' and then hit next, i get the error message that it cannot import in imapi :S

      I will make an screenshot tomorrow of that error as i don't have any vista station within reach.

        In order to create a correct CSV format for import in Windows Mail follow istruction in this post: http://www.winhelpline.info/forum/so...bernehmen.html

        Instead for importing messages I was able to import directly from my Outlook2007 configured to get messages from an Exchange2003 SP2.

        Can you specify what program and version is the source of those data please ?
