  1. WINDOWS 7AND SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT WINDOWS LIVE MAIL

  2. WHY WINDOWS LIVE MAIL • As we already know, Windows 7 [W7] does NOT come with an e-mail 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 e-mails • Address Book/Contacts

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

  9. IMPORTING E-MAILS • Click File-Import-Messages

  10. Select the e-mail program from which you are importing • Click next

  11. The location of your stored e-mails will be selected automatically – click next

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

  13. AFTER THE IMPORT • Your stored e-mails 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 e-mail 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 e-mails • 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 COMPUTERFOR E-MAILS • 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, e-mails 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 COMPUTERFOR E-MAILS • Have to find them • In XP they are hidden and must first un-hide as below

  27. UPGRADING TO A NEW COMPUTERFOR E-MAILS • 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 COMPUTERFOR 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

  30. THE IMPORT • The Import is exactly as shown before

  31. A QUICK LOOK AT LIVE MAIL VERY SIMILAR TO PREDECESSORS

  32. MANAGE MULTIPLE E-MAIL ACCOUNTS • Each Account has it’s own folder • Folders look very familiar • Outbox is “common”

  33. ADDING AN ACCOUNT IS EASY • Your default e-mail account will be set up if – as suggested – Live Mail was installed before installing W7

  34. IF YOU SEE THIS • You will need to enter the information provided by the ISP

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

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