I don't know if this will help anyone or not but here is the info. I upgraded fron Vista to Windows 7. In Vista I used Windows Mail and in 7 I had to
use Windows Live. I lost all my folders that had my emails stored in.
Here is a work around I used, hope it will work for others.
Put this is your address bar:
file:///C:/Users/User/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows%20Mail/Local%20Folders/

You should see a Index list of folders that were on your computer before you upgraded. Click on the folder of your choice and you will get a list of
files with dates they were last modified...click on one and you can open it with the email program of your choice, you can then save it if you wish.
