Is there any way I can get around the 10MB limit?

Using the "Add Send/Receive Account" import method seems to just ignore them, and "copy to folder" using an email client (Windows Live Mail) fails.

Seems like the Mail Migration add-on will do the trick (requires IE).

  1. Setup your existing email account with Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail or Windows Mail.
  2. Send/Receive to download your messages
  3. Sign-in to your Outlook.com in IE & run the tool.

Just tested with a ~20MB attachment and all was good.
