(Applies to Address Magic Personal and ePreserver)

Problem: Address Magic and ePreserver support converting to Windows Live Mail, but you lose the read/unread status for each message. The following solution is a workaround that will preserve the read/unread status.

Solution: The solution is as follows:

  1. In ePreserver/Address Magic, choose Windows Mail as your destination. Windows 7 does not support Windows Mail, but this still works.
  2. When ePreserver/Address Magic finishes, open Windows Live Mail.
  3. Press the "Alt" key on the keyboard to open the menu in Windows Live Mail.
  4. Select File / Import / Messages...
  5. Choose Windows Mail as the source.
  6. Finish the wizard.
  7. Open your contacts by clicking Contacts in the bottom left of the Windows Live Mail window.
  8. Press the "Alt" key on the keyboard to open the menu in Windows Live Mail.
  9. Select File / Import / Address book for current Windows user...
  10. Your contacts should be automatically imported.
