There is no bar in WLMail 2011 and 2012. What version do you use? The last version to work under XP (this forum) is WLMail 2009 and having a Menu bar with file on it.
 
If you transfer to a more recent machine...
 
 
 
In Outlook Express, compact you files first.
 

Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: File | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.
 
 
 
 
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-2009: open WLMail and: file | Import | Messages | Microsoft Outlook Express 6, and the point where it was saved.
 

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.
 

Note: If any DBX file is over 300 MB, return to OE and move some messages from the folder related to a new user created folder and compact down the size of the file.
 

For addresses:
 

Open the address book in OE and file | Export | Address book (wab) and save it to the desktop. Copy it to a flash drive. Place it on the desktop or another location on the computer using WLMail.
 
For WLMail 2009: Open list of Contacts in WLMail, (go |) Contacts in the Menu bar) and the file | Import | Address book (wab) Windows and the point where you saved it.
 
WLMail 2011/2012: switch to the contacts window (click on the book icon to the address at the foot of the folders pane, or press Ctrl-3). Click on the import button, select address book (wab) Windows and point on where it was saved.
 

Note: If you use a CD or a DVD instead of a flash drive, after placing on the new machine you must remove the read-only attribute in the properties before you import.
 

For the account settings:
 

In OE: Tools | Accounts, select the account and export it to the desktop. This will be an .iaf file. Copy it to the new desktop computer.
 
For WLMail 2009: Tools | Accounts and import the settings from the location you saved the.
 
For WLMail 2011: The Menu button. Options | E-mail accounts and import the settings from the location you saved the.
 

Account settings do not matter in WLMail 2012. You will have to do it manually.

  • transfer of mail from outlook express in windows mail

    I just installed a new drive on my vista dell calculation running after the failure of the old drive. I could get all my old data except e-mail from an external drive that was being automatic backup of vusta. I was using outlook express on your old computer. On the new disc from the dell software required that I used Windows mail. Mail program says he can import files from outlook express, but it didn't import empty files for me. When I look at the folders.dbx file, it only contains e-mail before 2007 and seems to correspond to the email I have uploaded from an older computer in 2007. How can I recover my missing email? Is it possible to reinstall outlook express? I still have the old external hard drive failed and the backup data on the hard drive.

    (1) that I can't do is delete the recovered Messages folder. A while back, I was able to delete empty files individually, one by one until I got rid of all. But now nothing happens when I delete things. I use Live updates for current email, so I can survive, but...

    (2) concerning the recovery of the hard drive, I don't mind try the program you suggested, but don't know how to connect the old drive. I remember reading something on a low-cost device that can be connected to a port... if USB, maybe you can direct me to a site where this is discussed, I would be grateful.
    Otherwise, I'll look for a local repair tomorrow show.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    1: tools | Options | Maintenance | Advanced | Store folder will show you the path to the Windows Mail message store. You may be able to remove the Messages recovered there. Do it with closed WinMail.

    2: If you want to get into the innards of your machine, it should be a space and drop side of your current drive. Otherwise, I would look at a store. Bruce Hagen MS - MVP [Mail]

  • Import e-mail messages from Outlook Express in Windows Live Mail?

    I have recently moved to a new PC with Win7 and have been using Live Mail - more often with success, I thought with the exception of one or two faults, but I'll probably post a question on those.
    On the audit of my old PC today, when I open Oulook Express have been downloaded more than 100 emails that have not appeared in Live Mail - dating back to the time I went.
    I tried to export these messages of OE, put it on a USB key and then import in LM LM do not seem to recognize them - these are the dbx files. Suggestions anyone please?
    Thank you in advance.
    Jeff.

    If both computers use the same e-mail address, you must do this to get the messages on both.
     
    On both machines: tools | Accounts | Mail | Properties | Advanced - Check: leave a copy of messages on the server.
     
    On a single computer only, make sure to delete messages after X days to satisfy your allocated space that you get from your server.

  • Error: "Server error: 554, 0x800CCC6F ' when sending e-mails from Outlook Express

    Original title: error fix 554

    I can receive messages from Outlook Express, but not send.  He said "Server error, 554, 0 x 800 CCC6F.  My server says it's MY problem, I had a virus or something through my system, and I can't use my email for 48 hours and to search for it on the web.  She said that someone has used my IP address to run a high traffic email (probably spam) through volume.  Is there a fix for this, because it drives me nuts, especially with a postal strike imminent.

    Brenda

    If its a problem with your computer by sending e-mail messages, you must obtain an antivirus program, such as www.microsoft.com/security_essentials and also antimalware (www.malwarebytes.org) and carefully analyze and disinfect your computer.

    In OE, completely remove your e-mail account and close then reopen the OE.  Then add your account mail back with the appropriate credentials.  Also, go to tools | Options | Security and put it in the sensitive area and check the box that says to notify you if someone is trying to send emails like you.

    When you are finished with it, then wait 48 hours than your ISP gives you and then try receiving and sending again.

    I'm afraid that if I upgrade the form Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail, I will lose all e-mail addresses in my address book current as well as the information contained in the files - models etc.

    If you install WLMail on your XP machine, it has to import messages and addresses automatically and nothing will be lost of OE.
     
    If you like WLMail better than OE, you are a person better than I am.
