Right, that's the one I'll try tonight.
Thanks for testing it!

Okay, get ready to mock me and throw balled-up piecwes of paper at me.....

I downloaded that free program, and decided, to be safe, to go and open my old e-mail files folder by folder, in case something got screwed up. It worked fine (thanks!) and I finished going through one folder. Then I took a break and played around in Windows Live Mail and stumbled across an "Import" function that I hadn't known was there(!) Tried it, and it imported ALL of my saved e-mail files from the folder I'd copied!

It seems that I don't understand this new Windows 7 stuff yet, and all I did was hover over or click every icon I saw in Windows Live Mail, and found no "import," but I didn't know there are "ribbons" of other options that to me were hidden. What an idiot I am.

Still, it would have been good if I had found in any of the many searches I did the fact that I could import from old Outlook Express folders into Windows Live Mail. You'd think that would have popped up!

Well, hopefully someone else learns from this. thanks again.

You're not an idiot

You want too much from Microsoft if you expect them to actually give good support for their products. After all they know how everything works, why don't you?

I "assumed" that process would work because Windows 7 is Vista "fixed", or so we're told.
