    Can some kind person <please> run me through how to transfer my contacts,

    e-mail and account settings from Windows Live Mail (2009) to Outlook 2003?

    WLM seems to be happy to export mail in two different formats (which do I

    need?)to export contacts as a csv file and and to produce iaf files for the

    accounts. But I'm not having any luck in persuading Outlook 2003 to import.

    For the mail, I can't find the folder where it's supposed to be located. For

    the accounts Outlook 2007 doesn't even ask me to point it to the folder where

    I put the iaf files - it just says it can't find them. Am I supposed to put

    them in a particular folder?

    The only reason I am reverting to Outlook 2003 is because I want to

    synchronise with a PDA using Win Mobile 6 and nothing will work unless the

    desktop e-mail client is Outlook (apparently). I was quite happy with Live

    Mail, and have had bad experiences of Outlook (& Outlook Express) getting the

    e-mail file corrupted.

    Thanks

    Thank you very much. You have no idea of how much trouble I have had

    tracking this message down again. MS sent me an e-mail with a link but all

    that did was take me to a blank white page. I Googled and found a copy on

    the website of the UK magazine PC Review. However, despite registering and

    logging in, every time I tried to answer to thank you, it told me I wasn't

    subscribed.

    Anyway, all is now fixed. Your how-to did not actually answer all my

    questions as it did not address transfer of account information, which used

    to be so easy with iaf files. My main problem was, of course, that I had

    forgotten the passwords - after all the rest of the information can just be

    copied over bit by bit. However, I found a small utility on the net that

    reads iaf files and tells you what the passport is.

    Thanks again. I shall now be posting a question in a different section

    about invisible zip files.
