Transferring email to a new computer

Hi I run 2 Dell T3500 towers  and have windows 7 on these. One is mine the other is my wife's which I need to replace soon and mine at a later date. We both have NTLworld email addresses and are using windows live mail as the email client. My wife has quite a lot of folders set up in her live mail program that she stores different emails in. My q2uestion is this.

I know live mail is no longer supported  so how do I transfer her email to the new machine  without losing all her saved emails and what do I need to do about putting Live mail on the new machine please?

Regards Frank

Re: Transferring email to a new computer

Hello Frank

Have a look at https://www.swipetips.com/moving-wlm-new-computer/ this should help you, are you planning to use the same program to receive your emails.

Otherwise you will need to export them and import them into the new system https://kb.nex-tech.com/article.php?id=25

We're no longer offering the Windows Essentials 2012 suite for download, but if you already have it installed, it will continue to work as it does today. It reached end of support on January 10, 2017, and it isn't available in Windows 10.

However, Windows Live Mail is available here: http://www.oldversion.com/windows/windows-live-mail/

Windows Live Essentials: https://download.cnet.com/Windows-Live-Essentials-2012/3000-20418_4-10805747.html

Remember, it's always risky to download and install software from a non original source.
