Outlook Import Wizard

Dennis Foote - Systems Engineer

Converting Windows Mail to Microsoft Outlook is easy to do with the Outlook Import Wizard.  I had a client that was on Outlook Express which changed over to Windows Mail in Windows Vista and Windows 7. They had a lot of email, contacts, and calendar events that needed to be converted into Outlook.

I found the Outlook Import Wizard makes it much easier to convert EML files to a PST file. ELM files can be found in C:\Users\{your user account name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Local Folders\account.oeaccount file. You can find the conversion tool by just doing a search in Google.

I encourage people to make the switch to Outlook if they are planning on purchasing MS office or have already purchased it and are not yet utilizing the Outlook program.
