    I don't have Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail, so I can't test.
    - Does File | Import and Export... > Import Internet Mail Account Settings offer Windows Mail as option?
    - If not, does it offer Outlook Express as option?

    Hans:

    No pretty much the only choices are Eudora and Outlook Express.

    You can export the messages fro Windows Mail to Exchange Server, and then in the process, one of the choices is a PST file... but it's just the messages or Contacts, not he email accounts themselves.

    Really seems strange to me...

    What happens if you select Outlook Express? After all, Windows Mail is actually Outlook Express 7.

    It just comes back with "No accounts found".

    It's probably because Outlook 2003 was written long before Windows Mail existed, so it doesn't recognize it.

    You may have to resort to creating the accounts in Outlook 2003 from scratch.
