Merging two message stores

I have two message stores for Windows Mail on my hard drive. I am using one 
as my current store. The other one I had used a while ago and then abandoned 
to try other email processors. When I resumed using Mail I started anew. 
Don't ask me why.

I now would like to import the messages from the old store into my current 
store. Can you suggest a way I might do that?

Do you have access to a IMAP server?  If so, copy tehm up to the IMAP 
server and make them uniified.

In Windows Mail, File, Import, Messages, choose
"Microsoft Windows Mail 7", point it to the old message store.

Picture in message appears bigger than original
I'm using Outlook 2003. I have this problem with adding pictures in messages. When ever I add a picture in a message(not as attachment), the picture looks much bigger than it actually is. The funny thing is that, when I check the size of the image in the message it shows to be the same size as what it should be, say 1 inch height and width. But looking at it in the message it looks like it's about 30% bigger. I don't want to adjust the pic everytime I send a message with a pic pasted in it. I'm using winxp pro as well. Any suggestions?
