    Transfer from Outlook Express to Outlook 2013 on Win 8.1 m


    I am still using Outlook Express on a Win XP laptop but I have now bought a new Win 8.1 laptop and installed Outlook 2013 (which is working OK)

    I am looking for the most fool proof way of moving literally tens of thousands of emails onto the new machine. This needs to be done with total 100% accuracy because these emails are fundamental to my business and go back to the last century! Some may be needed as evidence in court so accuracy is extremely important

    Obviously I will keep the old machine just in case ...

    In total there is at least 10Gb of data to transfer and about 2,000 email addresses

It failed in that respect because of other issues with my old XP computer. So what I did was delete all of the email addresses I had setup in old Outlook express except 1. I then used the old select all on my saved emails (in groups of 10-15. Then I simply forwarded them back to my self on an alternate address & downloaded them on my new Twobeers Special computer (built it myself). Now mind you all of these emails have a .eml extension, but the reader extension for Windows Mail Live is a freebe. Just click to open one of them and Windows will direct you to the FREE download at the Microsoft Store site. BTW when I tried to export the mail folders to Outlook I kept getting the "an error has occurred initializing MAPI." 6hrs of screwing around with this & that was enough for me. The above worked very well & quickly compared to....................
