I don't want to rant about windows live mail (WLM) I just want to rid my life of it permanently.
To this end I bought Outlook 2010 as part of Home and Business.
Followed all the instructions to get my precious mail out of WLM into Outlook msg pst.
Then I noticed that the last month or so all the emails have "dead" headers. The To, From, CC and BCC show names but if you try to select, hover or click - nothing no contact details, no email addresses. You can not reply to these either as the name does not resolve.
Older emails are fine? Weird!? More digging and I found this was exactly the date when I upgraded from Vista and Windows Mail to Win7 and found no mail client and had to download this stupid WLM (sorry did say I don't want to rant).
Tried a bunch of other ways to import no luck.
Found some "free to download" but not so free to use eml convertors that worked fine. Except to do all my emails and would have to buy them.
Why on earth is Outlook2010 not able to convert the eml of WLM correctly?
