Import Pst files to windows live mail (windows)

I need to import a folder containing all my emails in .pst format to windows live mail. I find live mail a quite simple tool to use having very less functions to perform and it syncs easily with any email account. But I am stuck in this migration issue which I am not able to over come. Can anyone help me import the .pst files in windows live mail 2012. Thank you.

SOURCE: Outlook pst file creation and export

All your mail, your contacts, your calendars, and almost every other detail of your life is in Outlook. To make sure you don't lose all this in case of a hard disk crash or some other disaster, you can create backup copies of your Personal Folders (.pst) files — that's where Outlook stores all the essential data.
Back Up or Copy Your Outlook Mail, Contacts and Other Data To create a copy of your mail, contacts, calendar and other data in Outlook for backup or copying:

  • Go to your Outlook folder in Windows Explorer.
  • Highlight all files ending in ".pst".
    • Make sure in particular your selection includes "outlook.pst" and "archive.pst".
  • Select Edit | Copy from the menu to copy them.
  • Open the folder where you want to put your backup copies in Windows Explorer.
    • Ideally, this will be on another computer, on a removable disk stored far away from your home, somewhere on the Internet, or at least on a different hard disk.
  • Select Edit | Paste from the menu to paste your .pst files to the backup location
Restore from Your Outlook Backup Your backup copy of Outlook data is now in place, ready to be restored when you need it.


Restore Outlook Mail, Contacts and Other Data from a Backup To restore your mail, contacts and other data from a backup copy of an Outlook PST file:
  • Select File | Import and Export... from the menu in Outlook.
  • Select Import from another program or file.
  • Click Next.
  • Highlight Personal Folder File (PST).
  • Click Next again.
  • Now use the Browse button to select the backup copy of the PST file you want to recover from your backup location.
  • Make sure Replace duplicates with items imported is selected.
  • Click Next.
  • Finish the import process with Finish.
Usually, the default import settings work fine, but you may want to tweak them to suit your needs.

Best provider for EML to MS outlook conversion


Outlook Express opens .eml files, and Outlook version 2007 and later should open .eml files. If your .eml file isn't opening in outlook, there may be a problem with your interface and compatibility. Here is an article from the Microsoft team describing how to ensure compatibility is turned on if you're having problems opening an .eml in outlook.

Making IMAP Account

Well creating an imap account can help you.
You have to simply make imap accounts on both the email clients you use and then you can upload you emails from outlook and then download on the other hand in apple mail.

Other alternative

You can also use the software approach to solve your problem.
Various softwares/applications/third party tools are available online.

95 e mails deleted in erroe is there any chance of recover


Depends if the emails were deleted from a web based email like hotmail or yahoo. If they were, the emails usually get moved to the trash folder after being deleted from the inbox. If they are deleted from the trash folder, than it is not possible to recover them. But if you have replied to any of the emails then you might have the message thread in your sent box for that particular email.
I use Outlook 2007 on vista OS so it may be a bit different to XP Mail or Outlook. The data for outlook (calendar, contacts, emails) is stored in a .pst file by default stored on your C Drive. So your deleted emails may or may not still be in this file. You can import the file to your outlook program to retrieve any old / archived emails that are stored in this file.

To find where your .pst file is stored on your computer, google a term like 'where is outlook .pst file on a windows xp os' or 'how do i find a .pst file on a windows xp computer'

The .pst files can be imported in outlook by going to 'File > Import and Export > Import from another file or program > Select the Personal Folder File .pst file.
This is how you get your emails back after they have been archived, or after your computer has been formatted, so if theres any chance of getting them back after being deleted when using outlook this method would be it. Hope it helps

Need to save and transfer all e-mails to a new computer


First of all, I assume that all the email account settings have already been setup within Outlook on the new computer (as you have been using Outlook on the new computer successfully to send and receive email).

If you want to transfer your files you will need to copy the Outlook PST file from your old computer to your new computer.
To find the location of the PST file, open Outlook on the old computer and in the left-hand pane you should see a listing of all your email folders, with the root heading being “Personal Folders”. This is your Personal Folders PST file which contains all your email.
  1. Right-click on the “Personal Folders” heading and select “Properties”.
  2. In the Properties window that appears for Personal Folders, click the “General” tab and the “Advanced” button.
  3. In the next window that appears there should be a field called “Filename”. This denotes the location of the PST file which contains all the email and folders within your Personal Folders PST file. Write down the location of the PST file and then click “Cancel” twice to close the two open windows. (It should be someting like C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst)
  4. Open Windows Explorer or My Computer and navigate to the location of your PST file. Be aware, you may need to enable the display of hidden files and folders to see the path to the PST file, as it might be a hidden path. To do this, go to the “Tools” menu > “Folder Options”. In the window that appears, click the “View” tab and enable “Show hidden files and folders” then click OK to save and close.
  5. Once you have located the PST file you can confirm that the file is correct by looking at the size of the PST file – it should be quite large - mine is about 1.2 GB!
  6. Copy this file to a USB hard drive or USB stick if you have one that can hold the size.
  7. Once the file has been copied to the USB hard drive, disconnect the USB hard drive from your old computer and then connect it to the new computer.
  8. Copy the PST file to a memorable location, such as the desktop (this is only temporary, and this PST file will be removed once the email transfer has been completed).
  9. Now it is time to import the contents of the old PST file into your installation of Outlook on the new computer by using the in-built Outlook import function.
  10. Open Outlook on the new computer then go to the “File” menu > “Import and Export”. The Import and Export Wizard window will appear.
  11. Select “Import from another program or file” and click “Next”.
  12. On the next screen asking you to choose the file type, select “Personal Folder File (.pst)” and click “Next”.
  13. The next screen will ask you to select the file to import.
  14. Click the “Browse” button and navigate to the location to which you copied the PST file from your old computer (in our example before this was the Desktop).
  15. Under “Options” select one of the options depending on how you wish the import to behave. I suggest you leave this at the default setting of “Replace duplicates with items imported” as you should not have any duplicates.
  16. Click “Next”. This last screen before the import allows you to specify exactly what should be imported. If you wish to import everything from your old PST file (i.e. mail, calendar, contacts, etc.) then underneath “Select the folder to import from” choose the root “Personal Folders” node as this will import everything underneath “Personal Folders” in your old PST file. As you can see, this includes emails and also the calendar, contacts, and other folders.
  17. Make sure “Include subfolders” is ticked and enable “Import items into the same folder in” then select “Personal Folders”. This will import all the data under your old Personal Folders into your new Personal Folders.
  18. Click “Finish” to commence the import. It could take a while considering the number of emails which need to transfer across.
Once the process has completed check the results. If you are satisfied then you can safely delete the copied PST file from your old computer to the desktop, as all the data from that file has been imported into your PST file for your installation of Outlook on the new computer. I would advise to burn it on a CD/DVD (depending on the size of the file) or store it somewhere else - it is always a good idea to keep a backup.

If you have any more questions or this description is not clear to you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
