Importing from Outlook to Windows Live

    Importing from Outlook to Windows Live


    With the help of Google I managed to import my contacts, but I can't seem to find anything useful for importing email from Outlook to Live. For some reason Roadrunner and Outlook don't work well. I like Live better anyway. I don't have many emails to import but is it possible to import a whole folder? Or do you have to import one at a time. If so, how?

    I don't have a pw for Outlook, it came with Office and the email is the same roadrunner address.

    windows live essentials has windows live mail in it as one of the applications. When you go to install it you just put a check mark to WLM
