  1. You are talking about import to Windows 8 Mail App.
    So how to “go to Windows Live Mail Sign In View” ? Windows Live Mail is only found in Windows 7 ?

  2. God Microsoft screwed this up. How the hell do they justify having export options in their old email apps only to create this new Metro Mail that contains no processes whatsoever for importing those files? I mean seriously, did they put any thought into this whatsoever?
