Import email from a desktop app

If you've been using a desktop app to manage your mail, like Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail, or the version of Windows Mail that came with Windows Vista, your email messages and contacts are on the hard drive of your old PC. You can import them into using the Mail Migration add-on.

Import your email and contacts

  1. On the PC that has your email and contacts, install the Mail Migration add-on for Internet Explorer.

  2. Choose which accounts you want to import.

    By default, the add-on will import all email and contacts from all email accounts on your PC.

  3. Click Import.

Set up your account in the Mail app

If you liked using Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail, or Windows Mail, and your PC runs Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1, try the Mail app.
