You don't....those folders only contain messages.
Setup each email account and newsgroup manually or by importing an iaf file.
- to setup an email account
WLM Menu/Tools/Accounts -> click Add or Import
Once accounts are setup with their default created folders and any user created folders(you create after adding an account) you may copy(not move) email messages from the Storage folders Imported folders/subfolders to the appropriate account. You can not copy or move newsgroup messages(download them again). Note: You should consider leaving imported messages in the Storage folders since removing an account will delete the account and all messages in WLM and your hard drive but not the Storage folders.)
If you were not using a Live ID and did not backup your contacts(in the Contacts module/menu) to a csv file, reenter your contacts manually.

good news. I found another folder that had all the wlm in it. I guess I
exported everything correctly.
now how to I get all the email accounts from storage to the top, where they
were and all the
news groups to where they go??
where do I find my contacts? I didn't have a sign in for live mail.
thanks for all the replies to my post.
