Retrieving Mail from a Corrupt Outlook Install


Recommended Posts

I have Outlook and Microsoft Office (2000) installed on a Wndows 7 PC. Outlook now locks up when it is opened.

Seems a lot of other people have this issue



The PC has Windows Live Mail now, so I'm not looking to fix Outlook, but my question is where is the mail in Outlook stored on a Windows 7 PC and is it a simple task to copy that mail and paste it into the Windows Live Mail app folders (which are where ) ?

Outlook always stores the entirety of your mail folder including calendars, tasks etc in that one PST file. You can import it into your Windows Live Mail folders using the Import/Export facility in the File menu.



Thanks mate, appreciate that.



Dumb as I am I couldn't find the File Menu on Live Mail so I did a less efficient work around of importing it into MS Outlook on another PC as per info at the following link :
