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

1. First download a small tool called “Mailstore Home” from here and install it (don’t worry, it is free)
2. After install, open Mailstore and thru this open .PST file
3. Now export to File System (remember, file format should be in eml), and select a folder where you want to export.
4. Now open Windows Live Mail > Click Import Function > Click Windows Mail
5. Now select the folder where you exported .PST files earlier

Hope it helps you!

No! You must purchase MailStore to get the PST file access features to operate.

    Thanks for the help...I've installed mailstore and archived PST file from Microsoft Outlook but this procedure is taking more than an hour now. Is this a normal process? It looks promising but it's still in the process.

    I've done all you've said and imported the PST file to Windows live mail. It says it has "completed importing into windows mail format", but I can't seem to find it in Windows live mail...any reason why? Did I do it wrong? Update ASAP please.

    Did you follow the following criteria.... 1. Outlook must be installed when you do the job 2. Individual messages from Outlook never drag and drop into Windows Mail Remember, Outlook contacts will need to be exported as a Comma Separated Values text file for import into Windows Contacts. And be careful about the point no 5. If possible repeat the same steps again with carefully. I did it earlier and it worked!

    Thanks Rechill for your help. I guess I took it the long way instead....I imported the PST file to Outlook Express from another computer and imported using the Windows Livemail on Windows 7 but then I still had trouble with contacts. So I imported my PST contact to MS Outlook on Windows 7 and sucked out the contact using Windows live mail from MS Outlook 2007...now I got all of them we wanted. Your help could have worked for me if i had done it correctly. I would have approved that your solution could have worked.

    Can you explain step 2, thru this open .PST file?  Don't understand where to open PST file in Mailstore.  I have a .PST Outlook file that I want to bring into Windows Live.
    Please help!
