I have a PST file of contacts on a USB key that came out of Microsoft Outlook. I want to export these contacts in Windows Live Mail desktop. How can I do this?

    I was wondering what version of Windows are you using? XP, Vista, 7

    Sorry... but with the .mov files, the conversion is the only solution.

    Here is a way to convert online so that you won't have to
    Download and install a software:

    Try the following free online Converter:


    Apple Quicktime conversion instructions

    (1) in the field "File"... click on "Browse".
    button and navigate to the .mov file you
    you want to convert. When you select the
    file... the path will appear in the field "File".

    (2) the "Input format" field should automatically
    show... Let it 'Apple Quicktime (.mov)'
    as it is...

    (3) "output size" has two windows...
    does not display the field on the left, "no video".
    PRESET"... leave it as what...

    (4) in the next to move to the right window
    You can choose the format you want
    convert... try:

    Windows Media Video (.wmv)

    (5) on the left, click on the blue * OK button.
    (sometimes the site is busy... If the conversion fails... try again)

    Now... wait as the file to be converted.
    (be patient)

    Once the conversion is completed, you will see:
    File converted successfully!

    Your file will appear right of a little green
    ... left click on the file name... save it as
    ... appears on the left, click on the "Save" button.
    Choose a folder to save in (I always download)
    on my desk)... on the left, click on the "Save" button.

    When the file is downloaded, you should be able
    to play with Windows Media Player and it should
    be compatible with Movie maker.

    That's all! Good luck.

  • How to keep Windows Contacts to update if you use Windows Live Mail... only for iphone

    Dear people of MS,

    The guys at tech Windows Live forum helped me as much as they could, but suggested I bring my topic to give you is a question re: Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail (WLM).

    Anyway, I had a computer crash on my Vista computer (all data had been backed up fine - it is) but in the meantime I bought a notebook with Windows 7 above. I started to use WL Mail on my new computer and when I finally got my old a return of the boutique (Vista), I downloaded WL Mail so that I would use same program of electronic mail on both computers. It makes sense to me.

    However, I have since discovered that when my iphone syncs with my computer, it only picks up the contacts of my Contacts from Windows Messaging folder, and * not * those of my WL Mail one.

    Question: what do I do if I want to keep my Windows Mail contacts up to date, ensuring that all new Contacts that I have receipt/get through WLM are also in my Windows Contacts so that when I sync my iphone the iphone is up-to-date with Windows Contacts.

    Windows Mail Contacts are so easy to see and then move that WL those who are not. It's horrible!

    Can you please help - after reading a lot of posting on the website of Windows Live, I'm assuming that I need to import the WL Contacts in Contacts in Windows Messaging is that correct? Is there anything else I should know or should do?

    Thank you very much.


    Psych :)

    Hey Psych13 and Gary,.

    Looks like you two neglected, first paragraph, of Halima. Just to summarize his position, it is not possible to synchronize contacts between Windows Live Mail and Windows Contacts. They don't like each other, there's bad blood there. :)

    Assuming that you have different contacts Contacts Windows and your Windows Live Mail, the third link posted Halima will help you to consolidate your contacts in a single application.

    And assuming that you need help to set up your iPhone to sync with Windows Live Mail, you can use the fourth link for help.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

    Original title: transfer emails to new computer

    Pls is it possible to somehow retrieve the emails from an Outlook Express account on a broken computer to transfer to my new computer which runs Windows Live Mail or do I need to get the old computer fixed? Thank you very much

    You are welcome. If you can get the files from hard drive accessible, here's what you need to know.
    Transfer of data from Outlook Express and Windows Live Mail:

    For Messages:
    Copy the * ENTIRE * OE message store folder to a flash drive. (Folders.dbx must be included). Place it on the desktop or another location on the computer using WLMail.

    V-2011/2012: Menu button. Import Messages. Microsoft Outlook Express 6, and the point where it was saved.

    Location of OE message store:

    In OE: Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.

    In Windows XP the OE User (DBX and WAB) are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder Options icon | Opinion, or in Windows Explorer. Tools | Folder options | View.
