Importing Microsoft Outlook .pst file into Windows Mail


David Hatchett

How do I import a Microsoft Outlook .pst file into Windows Mail.

From Windows Mail when I select File-Import-Messages and pick Microsoft
Outlook from the list of options I get the error "Messages Cannot be
imported from the MAPI client."




Windows Mail cannot import a .pst file unless Outlook is installed on the
Vista computer.

You can install Outlook, copy the .pst to the Vista computer, open the .pst
with Outlook, then you can import into Windows Mail.

If you have Outlook installed on an XP computer, import the .pst data into
Outlook Express, copy the .dbx files and .wab file to the Vista computer,
and import into Windows Mail.
