Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You cannot read the pst file in Windows Live Mail. You should have imported your data from Outlook 2000 to Outlook Express or exported it from Outlook 2000 as csv files.

If you still have the old computer you could do this now. If not, Google for “read pst” and you should find applications which can read pst files and export the data from them. You can then import the data to Windows Live Mail.

An alternative is to install a trial version of Outlook 2010, export the data and then uninstall the trial.

    Windows Live Mail--part of Microsoft's Windows Live series of free downloads. It does not support PST file, It support EML file extension is used for emailing message files. If you want to import a PST file in it, then you will need to convert PST file to EML file format. Go and Google for the third party utility I found Advanced PST Converter tool which easily converts outlook PST file to EML file format.
