Does anybody know how I can transfer all my email messages, contacts and calendar entries from Live Mail (formerly Hotmail) to Gmail?

Regarding the contacts - you should export all your contacts to a .csv file. Under correction, you should be able to do this by going to options, customize contacts and then export contacts.

Then in Gmail you should go to contacts and "import" contacts. I am not entirely sure about the calender entries, but I've successfully migrated contacts in the past from Apple Mail, Outlook, Outlook for Mac and incredimail - all to Gmail (and by .csv format)
