Benefits of importing
Windows Mail and Microsoft Outlook are e-mail clients that help the users to efficiently manage their e-mail accounts. Windows Mail was introduced after Microsoft Outlook, so most users try to use the new program. However, with redesigned interface and design, many of them find it convenient to switch back to Microsoft Outlook. In this case, importing the data from Windows Mail to Microsoft Outlook will be a useful option as they can stick with their favorite and important e-mails.
Method to import
Importing messages from Windows Mail to Microsoft Outlook can be done easily with just a few clicks. First of all, open the ‘File’ menu in Windows Mail and select ‘Export’. Then click ‘Messages’. This will start up the Windows Mail Export Wizard. Click ‘Microsoft Exchange’ and click ‘Next’ and then ‘OK’. This will export the messages from Windows Mail to Microsoft Outlook. If Outlook is not opened, you should select the profile to which the messages needed to be imported.
At times you might end up with errors while trying to import from Windows Mail to Microsoft Outlook. One reason due to which this happens is the security programs installed in your system.
