From Microsoft Outlook Express

After finding the folder named 'Outlook Express', copy all its contents (e-mails, contacts) to an external location like USB flash drive or external hard drive.
To Windows Live mail
After completing the copying process, you need to create an empty folder on the desktop and then open Windows Live Mail. In the file menu, you need to click on 'Export' option and then go for 'messages' option. Now, click on 'Microsoft Windows Live Mail' and then press 'Next' option. Next, you need to click on 'Browse' option and then navigate through the folder that you created on the desktop and click on 'select folder' option, followed by clicking on 'next'. In the next window, you need to click on 'All folders' option and then click on 'next'. Wait for the export to complete. Finally, click on 'Finish' option to complete the export process.
