Fix possible problems while exporting data from Windows® Mail
How to fix potential problems while exporting messages from Windows Mail?
Microsoft Windows Mail, Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft Outlook Express are different e-mail client programs that have different capabilities. The common function of these programs is to send and receive e-mail through the Internet. The information which is stored in these programs is not synchronized automatically. If an e-mail message is stored in Windows Mail or in Microsoft Outlook Express then, that e-mail message is not automatically available in Microsoft Outlook 2007. In order to export the messages from Windows Mail to Microsoft Outlook you must point to 'Export from the File' menu and click on 'Messages'. Then click on 'Microsoft Exchange' from the Windows Mail Export Wizard. After this click 'Next' and then click 'OK'. After performing these operations you would be able to export the messages from Windows Mail to Microsoft Outlook.
Following are the problems that may occur while exporting messages from Windows Mail and the ways to fix them:
- Minor Problem
- Major Problem
- Tips to fix the Problem
One of the minor problems that arise while exporting the Windows Mail messages is that the e-mail ID of the sender is not reflected. While the messages are exported from the Inbox of Windows Mail to the Inbox of Microsoft Outlook 2003, only the name of the sender is displayed not the e-mail ID. Due to this reason you will not be able to reply to these e-mails from Microsoft Outlook. Instead you must retype the e-mail address.
When the messages are sent to undisclosed recipients from the Inbox of Windows Mail to the Inbox of Microsoft Outlook, then the export purpose of Windows Mail is to successfully send these messages across to Microsoft Outlook where the user could see the e-mail count going across correctly. But after this they cannot be found anywhere in the Inbox or any other folder in Microsoft Outlook.
The minor issue that occurs while exporting the Windows Mail messages could be solved by copying the e-mail address of the sender which would be available in the Windows Mail. Another issue which might arise during the export of messages from Windows Mail to Microsoft Outlook is an error which occurs during the initialization of MAPI. This issue could be solved by copying the EML files from the message store and then dragging them into an Microsoft Outlook Express folder.
