Tein matkalle ja piti käyttää minun laptop, joka juoksee Vista, Tilapäisesti tehdä sähköpostiini. Ilmeinen työkalu kanssa Vista oli Windows Mail. Tavallisesti käytän Outlook 2007 minun XP pöytätietokone. Kun pääsin kotiin matkalta sain yli 80 sähköposteja, jotka halusin tuonti Windows Mail kannettavan tietokoneen Outlookiin työpöydälle.

Sen jälkeen huomasin, että Microsoft ei säädetä helposti tuontia ja vientiä kahden tietokoneen välillä, minä alkaa etsii ratkaisua, varsinkin kun tämä tarve saattaa toistua. EmlToPst tuli tietooni Google-haun kautta, ja minä ladannut kokeiluversio. Kuitenkin tähän mennessä olin jo viettänyt puoli päivää yrittää asentaa vanha kopio Outlook 2000 on Vista kannettavan tietokoneen kanssa ainoana tarkoituksena on saada Windows Mail että viedä PST-tiedoston – all to no avail (Outlook 2000 is no longer supported by Microsoft, and multiple workarounds suggested on the Internet were all dead ends). So ultimately the prospect of spending $14.95 [ special offer coupon ] for a working solution looked pretty good. I did first verify, using the trial version, that EmlToPst really would convert an email with attachments to a .pst that I could open in Outlook 2007. And in the end, I feel like you rescued me from a terrible nightmare at a bargain price.

I have not tried too much more than the simple conversion of a tree of Windows Mail folders to a single .pst file. The awkward part was that I only wanted part of the Windows Mail folders – Inbox and Sent Items – so I had to make a copy of the tree and delete the unwanted folders before doing the conversion. Then EmlToPst put all the converted folders into the new .pst with its own super-header and then under its Saapuneet folder with all the original categories, including Inbox, repeated under that. It was no big deal to then copy the emails from this subtree into their respective categories in my real Outlook 2007 tree, but this would not be too much fun if I had to do it very often. If there is a direct way to automatically “synchronize” email from Windows Mail to Outlook 2007, putting everything properly from folder to respective folder, then that is not clear to me at this point. [ suggestion: just disable the root folder creation option ] As it was, however, I was only too pleased to get the emails and their attachments copied over and intact, even if it did require a number of manual operations (which might, I should add, be difficult or impossible for those with limited experience in these matters).

Thanks for a “life-saver”.
