Winmail.fol can't import to Windows Mail

(1) I exported my Windows mail message in a folder.

(2) I've reformatted my computer and then re-installed all programs.

(3) I imported my e-mail Windows messages.

Mistakes: After importing, I see my mail folders (Inbox, sent and other), but the folders are empty.

If I open the backup folder, I see my folders (Inbox, sent and other) and in each folder, I see a file called winmail.

How to open these winmail files so I can access my saved emails?

You messages must be kept as discreet. EML files in the subfolders of the folder that you exported to.  If they aren't there, they cannot be exported properly.  If they are there, you can drag and drop them in Windows Mail.  In addition, you can search for. EML files which, again, can be move and fell into Windows Mail.

  • Importing saved Windows Mail folders in new Windows Mail program

    I'll have to re - set up my Windows Mail after the death of my old hard drive. I am trying to import my old files from my Windows Mail Backup in my new Windows Mail. I was able to transfer the former folders of the backup but when I go to import it recognizes not all files. The error reads: "no messages are located in this folder or another application is running...". "I read several threads and it seems I also have to transfer via a file called folders.dbx, but it is not a list. I did a complete search on my C drive and nothing. How can I get these old records imported without this file?

    Thank you!

    Windows Mail does not dbx files.  Copy the store directory of all message on the desktop of the new machine.  Then right-click on the file and go to properties and make sure that they are not read-only.  Then go to file | Import | Messages in WinMail and choose the format from Windows Mail 7 and point to this directory.   See also here for general information: www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#wm
     
    If you can not always get messages in folders, you can create a new folder in WinMail and open it so that it displays a list of empty message.  Then, open up one of the subdirectories containing eml files in Explorer and drag an eml file on top of the list of message empty folder and drop and you will see it is embedded in the file.  Once you get a job, you can drag and drop all eml files at a time, as long as they are only the eml files.

  • How can I get Vista "Windows Mail" to check mail using my connection local (LAN) internet?

    How can I get Vista "Windows Mail" to check mail using my connection local (LAN) internet?

    It allows only wants to "connect" using dial-up, wireless or wired ISP (type PPP) requiring a UID and password, of which none seem to allow me to select a LAN (ISP) simple (without a password).

    I know that the Ethernet connection works Ok, because I can use it with a standard Web browser; only the mail tool can't seem to see or use.

    Whenever I tell the Windows Mail email 'Send and receive', he wants to 'connect' for remote access or one of his three choices (listed above and direct exclusion of any connection to the local network).  It works with remote access, so once I have spend that I should be Ok. but I can't make it work directly.

    Help.

    In Windows Mail, go to select Tools, accounts, your account email, properties, connection.  It shows for the connection?  You
    should leave this setting not selected, in which case Windows Mail will use the IE connection uses.
     
    In addition, under Tools, Options, connection, the first checkbox must be checked, and the second box unchecked.
     
    If everything which withdraws, but you still have the problem, the account may be damaged.  Remove account, restart Windows Mail,.
    then recreate the account.

  • import from windows mail emails from a broken vista pc

    My 32 bit Vista computer died - power, card mother etc. I have Acronis Disk full backups on a daily and external drive Acronis cloud of my files 'user '. What I don't have is a Windows Mail systems working group to export my old emails. When I run Thunderbird, are there emails in any way I can get these old backup, even if it means going from one place to another to get them.
    As a temporary measure, I am now on a Windows 7 64-bit system.
    If someone can help, but needs more information, let me know.
    Thank you.

    If your drag / drop off the mail will find themselves in some folder you \drop in.

    A better solution would be to use the add-on from the import export tools if you have several nested folders as it will import a folder and the subfolders. The add-on will recreate your folder structure. It you choose to import the messages in a folder and its subfolders.

  • How can I remove the Windows Mail splash screen?

    How can I remove the start of Windows Mail from my computer screen?

    Try this:

    Go to this registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Mail

    Then, create a new DWORD entry and call NoSplash.  Then set the value to 1.

    That's how it worked in OE (see http://www.insideoe.com/faqs/how.htm) and it should work this way in WinMail.

  • How import from Windows mail emails.

    I recently bought a new laptop and I use free email of Windows that comes with the computer.  I used this program on my old computer (I think it's Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail).  I exported my old emails and a subfolders and I would like to import to my new computer, but there is no option to import.  Nothing under the settings and I can not find the file menu in the new email (used t be on top right).  I exported the email fine but the screen in this new laptop (which has Windows 8) is very different.

    OT: Import emails

    Hi Said,

    You will not be able to import the mails in the mail, instead of this application if you have e-mail messages in your Windows live mail, you can synchronize your mail app outlook.com e-mail so that all emails in the outlook.com e-mail appear in Windows 8 Mail app. As an alternative, you can also install Windows live essentials in Windows 8 import back the mails that you exported and use for reference.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you have other problems with Windows in the future.

  • How can webmails transferred in Windows Mail - I transfer back?

    I accepted a few updates and since then, my Inbox of emails on the web shows no message (which means that my cell phone does not receive emails). Windows mail displays messages 'disappeared', but I want to be able to work in the way that I'm used to.

    Please can you advise how to get the emails visible in the web-based service (Yahoo / BT Internet) and how to prevent recurrence.

    I'm an individual, residential consumer and need for nice, clear instructions please.

    Thank you

    You're welcome, Bron.   But I'm not sure what the problem is now.

    The steps I gave should allow the same new e-mail messages appear in three places: Windows Mail, Inbox of browser, mobile phone.  If you do not want new message in Windows Mail, clear the check box that you have found. You can also remove your mail.btinternet.com Windows Mail account, which would be to remove the messages that you have already received in Windows Mail.

    I don't know anyway to get old messages that are already in Windows Mail in your Inbox in browser or a mobile phone.

    How can I do name be the standing order in my contacts?

    Please use the Forum for answers!

    Click on the name of title just above the list to change sorting options, it will toggle between first name and family name, Crescent/descending Crescent/descending.

  • Can I set up Windows Mail to send messages and not receive?

    sending messages multiple pc while receiving on one PC

    I am trying to set up Windows Mail on Vista machine just to send messages and do not receive because I get all my email on another computer running Windows XP. Is it feasible with the same account name and service provider? How can I make sure that don't get emails on the machine Vista. Windows Mail requires both incoming and outgoing servers?

    When you set up your account send only, you should be able to disable the e-mail is.  Under the general tab of the account properties, you will find a box "Include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing".  Uncheck this option.  You can include any string of fake server, you want the name of the incoming server.  The account will never check incoming mail, but you can use it to send mail.

  • Can receive, but can'rt email on Windows Mail

    I use Windows Mail to my Roadrunner email account.  A few days ago I sent an email I had received from a reliable source on my PC at home.  Since then, I'm OK, reception of emails, but cannot send anything.  Outgoing messages stay in my Outbox.  This an email I have tried to convey is still there and if I try to move it or remove it, an error message appears.  I spoke with Brighthouse (Roadrunner) and after I restarted my computer, but also other things that I told him that I had already tried, it has been determined that there is no problem with my account.  Indeed, I can access and send email when the RR remote access.  They told me to contact Microsoft, which I did and they can remove, but want to charge me $ 59.95 more taxes to do it.  They told me to try to call Dell, since my product ID is OEM, but Dell is closed until tomorrow.

    Can someone tell me please how to remove this email?

    Click: File | Work offline. Can you remove it from the Outbox, or do it now?
