I have a old PC running XP using Outlook Express as there email program. With there new Windows 7 PC they downloaded Windows Live Mail. How do I import/export old email and contacts/address book from the old PC's Outlook Express to the New PC's Windows Live Mail?

It may be possible to fix the problem using these steps:
  1. Open Outlook Express

  2. Click "Local Folders" in the left side navigation

  3. Select New Folder and name it TEMP

  4. If possible move all of the email from your Inbox to the TEMP folder

  5. Go to menu bar and select Tools -> Options -> Maintenance -> Store Folder and then write down the location of your inbox

  6. Close Outlook Express

  7. Use My Computer to go to the location is step 5 and then delete the file inbox.dbx

  8. Open Outlook Express - The Inbox folder should be auto recreated.

  9. Move your email from the TEMP folder back to your Inbox
