Windows mail provides robust usability and features along with a greater focus on system security that can be prioritized by several users. Mails are viewed via Internet which was enabled by Outlook Express and Internet behavior was transmitted to the counterpart of mails. Windows Mail does not save account setup information in the registry as of Outlook Express.
The following are the issues that can occur while migrating address books and e-mail messages from Outlook Express to Windows mail and points to keep in mind before migrating:
- Migration issues
- Use Import Server
- Activate migration utility
Migrating or transferring mails to other e-mail client such as Windows Mail might fail if you enter wrong login details wherein the e-mail client might not be able to communicate with e-mail server. Improper net connections prevent you from sending address book and other stuff to different clients. When the address of SMTP server is not correct, process sending and receiving mails gets disabled from your account.
Use Import Server
Import Server that behaves like an e-mail server helps you to transfer e-mails to certain e-mail applications. It keeps track of old e-mails and files that are to be downloaded into new mail application. When your new application fails to offer an option of transferring data then you can use this import server that helps in bypassing the procedure of importing by introducing old e-mail to a safe and local e-mail server.
Migration Utility permits to migrate stored mails address books and other data to saved e-mail, confidential and public mailing lists. When the process of migration gets completed old mail folders and attachments can be used. This utility enables you to transfer important documents and folders to other mail ids. Only when this is activated you may be allowed to successfully migrate from one client to other.
