I cannot get outlook.com to accept the settings to import emails from my shaw email account
Hi there mcguiver,
If you're trying to do the automated import/export that Outlook.com supplies you with, unfortunately this will not work. You will have to mcguiver it a bit and do it manually.
First off, you will have to export your account using the instructions found in the following document:
Import/Export in Webmail 2.0
Once you have the account exported, you will have to import it in to Outlook.com. I'm not overly familiar with the process using Outlook.com unfortunately, but you should be able to find an option to "Import Account" or something similar, then select the file from your Webmail that you exported.
