I have a new computer with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail.

Live mail doesn't pick up the Outlook Calendar, Contacts and the IMAP

folders I had created. How can I get these over from my old Outlook to Live

Mail. (I have saved the pst file)

Download and install the trial version of Office 2007. Configure Outlook

to use your old pst file. Then in Windows Mail do File-Import.

Let's deal with the IMAP account first. IMAP account leave all the information on the server. You don't need to transfer anything. SImply create the same account in Windows Live Mail and you'll have access to all the same information Outlook did.




For the Outlook Contacts, it's not quite as easy. Windows Live Mail cannot import PSTs directly. You'll either need to export the contacts from the old PC to a comma-separated values file and import that into Windows Live Mail or install Outlook (2003 or later) on Windows 7, connect the PST to it, then export from Outlook to a CSV and import that into Windows Live Mail.




Windows Live Mail, when connected to a live.com or hotmail.com account should be able to reference the calendar on the Live server. You should be able to import a CSV into the calendar when logged into the live.com or hotmail.com account via a web browser. I don't know (since I haven't tried) if you can import to the calendar using the Windows Live Mail client.

Forget this - didn't see the "IMAP" in the subject!
