I've happily used OE on an XP desktop and am now reluctantly "upgrading" to Windows 8.1. I have enormous archived message folders that I need to integrate into whatever email client I use instead. Ideally I'd like to be able to sync those with my laptop, which is running Windows 7. I looked into LiveMail but it's poorly reviewed and I found it difficult to download and install. So I'm thinking of buying Outlook 2010. A web search produced warnings that I won't be able to import OE files into the 64-bit version. Will I be happy with the 32-bit version? It would be nice to import directly without having to go through the extra step of LiveMail. Any thoughts would be welcome.
