I have a new pc which has the Vista operating system. However, my old pc
had the operating system XP. I use Outlook in XP for my email and now
with Vista, I had to download Windows Live Mail. Would someone please
tell me how I can retrieve my emails from Outlook into Windows Live
Mail?
Thanks.

Vista comes with Windows Mail, so I'm surprised you did not try that.
Vista has the Windows Easy Transfer program which you could have
used to transfer emails from Outlook to Windows Mail.

Windows Live Mail is a different program which is covered in a different
newsgroup: microsoft.public.windows.live.mail.desktop .

You can certainly continue to use Outlook on Vista. Versions prior to 2003
have some issues, but will run and Outlook 2003 and later are fully
compatible.
