1 WINDOWS 7 AND SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT WINDOWS LIVE MAIL

2 WHY WINDOWS LIVE MAIL As we already know, Windows 7 [W7] does NOT come with an program Outlook Express and Windows Mail just disappear!

3 WHY WINDOWS LIVE MAIL If you have been using Outlook Express or Windows Mail, you will probably prefer to use Windows Live Mail with W7 – Outlook will work with W7 Can also move from Thunderbird etc. – may need to download File Import/Export add-on

4 WHERE TO GET IT Search “download windows live mail” See below – check the domain name Free download

5 FIRST CONSIDERATIONS Two possible scenarios: – Upgrading an existing computer – Upgrading to a new computer

6 UPGRADING AN EXISTING COMPUTER It is suggested that the best approach is to install WLM before installing W7 – because once W7 is installed you can’t go back This will also give you an opportunity to “try before you buy” Can go back if there are any problems

7 TWO FACTORS TO BE CONSIDERED Stored s Address Book/Contacts

8 FIRST STEPS Clean up your stored s Download and install Windows Live Mail Open WLM - You will be prompted to make it your default – best not to at this stage

9 IMPORTING S Click File-Import- Messages

10 Select the program from which you are importing Click next

11 The location of your stored s will be selected automatically – click next

12 Best to select “all folders” – click next to start the import

13 AFTER THE IMPORT Your stored s will be in a folder called “Storage” Go to it – expand it and check to see what has been imported – Look in “Local Folders”

14 MIGHT GET CONFUSING AT THIS POINT

15 WHAT HAPPENED? The import may not reflect the folder names and structures as currently set up It seems that the actual storage reflects the original set up before any folder name or structure changes over time NOT A PROBLEM – CAN CHANGE NAMES AND STRUCTURE

16 FINAL STEP Drag “Local Folders” from the Import folder to the account folder to be under “Storage” directly Rename and/or restructure as needed

17 IMPORTING ADDRESS BOOK Windows Live Mail does not have a direct import facility as we saw with stored s Need to export from old address book, the import to Windows Live Contacts Suggest to clean up contacts as a first step

18 EXPORTING THE OLD ADRESSES In the address book, click file – export – Comma Separated Values [CSV]. This file format will be found in most systems

19 YOU WILL SEE

20 NAME AND LOCATION Be sure to choose a name and location that you will remember

21 WHAT TO IMPORT

22 THE IMPORT Click file – import – CSV

23 YOU WILL SEE

24 COMPLETE THE IMPORT You get a chance to change what is imported

25 UPGRADING TO A NEW COMPUTER FOR S This mostly means XP to W7 – likely to be the same computer if Vista to W7. If you went through a process of transferring files from the old computer to the new, s should be there and may be imported as shown before If they are not found then they have to be copied onto removable media on the old computer

26 UPGRADING TO A NEW COMPUTER FOR S Have to find them In XP they are hidden and must first un-hide as below

27 UPGRADING TO A NEW COMPUTER FOR S The usual locations are shown below – use Windows Explorer to access them and copy to removable media

28 FROM VISTA If the old computer is Vista and the files did not transfer, the process is basically the same but files are not hidden – the default location is shown below

29 UPGRADING TO A NEW COMPUTER FOR ADDRESS BOOK Basically as show before except you will have to export to removable media The following illustrations show the Export in XP – Vista is similar

31 THE IMPORT The Import is exactly as shown before

32 A QUICK LOOK AT LIVE MAIL VERY SIMILAR TO PREDECESSORS

33 MANAGE MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS Each Account has it’s own folder Folders look very familiar Outbox is “common”

34 ADDING AN ACCOUNT IS EASY Your default account will be set up if – as suggested – Live Mail was installed before installing W7

35

36 IF YOU SEE THIS You will need to enter the information provided by the ISP

37 FOR LARGE PROVIDERS This means [with some exceptions] Hotmail, G-Mail etc. Live Mail detects your account settings and will create the account automatically

38 USING MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS Incoming mail is directed to the proper account folder For outgoing mail, you choose the account
