    I just bought a new laptop because my old one was fried.

    So I am using Windows 7 and bought Outlook 2010 to use for emails. Anyone know how I can import all of my old emails saved, account settings, etc, from Windows Mail on Vista? I have it all stored on an external harddrive. Tried to follow the steps that Outlook 2010 provides and it doesn't work.

    Anyone have an idea?

    As for the Account settings, I would just reenter them manually.

    I do NOT have 2010 installed, so I can not help with the others.

    I kind of figured that but recovering those old emails is the most important thing. I had so much stuff, all organized in folders, now it's all useless.
