    Need Help Importing Email Storage Folders


    I was running Windows 7 and Using Microsoft Live Mail. I do a lot of shopping online and have the receipts stored in storage folders in the program. I bought a new laptop that runs Windows 8 on it. I have exported the storage folders and saved them on a flash drive. Then I saved them onto a flashdrive and transferred them to the new laptop. But Windows 8 won't open them. It won't open any of my email stationery either. It keeps wanting to import them as contacts. I have looked for another program to use to open the .eml files but can't find one. Can you please help me?

    Hello Steph, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you meant that you used Windows Live Mail, then you could also install it in Windows 8.

    Afterwards you could import your messages back into Windows Live Mail. This is assuming that you exported them using the method below first.

    If not, then you should be able to just drag and drop the .eml files from your backup into an inbox in your email client program to add the messages back.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
