    OK...real dilemma here, folks...

    I'm currently using Windows 'Live Mail'. I don't like it. WHY (you ask) ??? My Contacts just up & disappear on a regular basis. I then have to import my .csv from my old address book.

    The other reason is...one of my mail accounts...which has a domain from my website...gives me an error message that Live Mail cannot send or receive messages from that account, because the server is unable to be found. But guess what...Live Mail sends & receives messages from that account just fine. In Accounts, my domain servers are configured correctly...everything is configured correctly...(exactly the same as they were when I used to run Outlook Express). The only problem is the stupid error message.

    So...I really want to go back to OE.

    Trouble is...the only portal I know of (for importing & exporting messages between the two clients) is Microsoft Exchange. But Live Mail WILL NOT permit me to export in that format...it tells me that my MAPI is screwed up. So I cannot get my messages from Live Mail to OE.

    Also, OE will not import account files (*.iaf) that were created in Live Mail. Those I can do manually...no big deal.

    But I would really like to find a way to get my messages from Live Mail to OE. A great many of them are very important; & I need them.

    I guess the problem arises from the fact that OE is an older client...but that still doesn't explain all the weird behavior. Sure could use some help...thanks,

    Do you have more than one account defined for the email domain? Is there more detail to the error message such as a code, etc.?

    If you export your mail items in WLM format you should end up with many .eml files. Just open OE and then dragn and drop the eml files to the folder where you want them.

    my man, Joe...

    Figured out the eroneous error message in Live Mail. The error message read as follows:

    Unable to send or receive messages from the myusername account. The host 'pop.mydomain.com' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly.

    Server: 'pop.,mydomain.com'
    Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0D
    Protocol: POP3
    Port: 110
    Secure(SSL): No
    Socket Error: 11001

    There was a stupid comma in the server name...my bad.

    I may stay w/ Live Mail after all...OE seems a bit old hat (after experiencing all those transparent, Vista style windows & the separate account folders & what not).

    thanks fer all yer help, man...

    Glad you got the error figured out.

    See if CONTACTS FOUND!! in Windows Live Mail Desktop helps. Be sure to read the whole thread.

    well...the guy responding to the the thread that uses XP Pro SP3 would be me...but his reply is a bit confusing. he does state, however...that his contacts appear in both locations:

    My Contacts now all show in:

    C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Contacts

    AND:

    C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts
    then he goes on to say that he imported using the "Import Address Book For Current Windows User"...but that still doesn't work.

    I do not have any "Contacts" folder in my Windows Live Mail folder...but all the individual contacts folders are in there, along w/ a bunch of log files.

    In my Windows Live Contacts folder, I have a bunch of empty, long-name folders

    thanks,

    joe...

    someone suggested creating a Live account...storing my .csv there...& signing in to Live when I open Live Mail. I'm trying that now...will let you know if it works.

    thanks,


    mf

    btw - not real happy about now having my contacts on the internet...but I guess it's safe
