    There were absolutely no errors for the last one, so I’m really not sure what happened.

    I have tried three more times this week and still no luck. I even purchased the pro bundle assuming that may be that might help. So what should I do now. I have been trying to get it to work for 3 weeks now and no luck. Is there a higher level of support that I need to get. Please advice next steps since doing the same thing over and over and over again is not working.

    I haven’t received anything.

    Did you reply to the donotreply subscription email from the forums, or the email with the subject “Re: Migrating images/assets from Moveable type to Word Press. (1328146)” from our support email address?

    I emailed it to “support@wordpress.com” with a subject line of – RE: [WordPress #1328146]: Re: Migrating images/assets from Moveable type to Word Press.

    I am going to try it again.

    Yes, it doesn’t seem to be here. Instead of emailing separately, please try just replying to what I sent you.

    No, I have not received the email.

    Please try just sending a separate email to support@wordpress.com with #1328146 in the subject line.

    We still haven’t received anything. Please make sure that your email program can actually send emails by emailing someone else.

    Ok, that will work.

    I have restarted the importer, so let’s see what happens in 24 hours.

    I see the blog entries in the wordpress blog, but the image reference is still to the old blog server and they are imported.

    I see 63 images but there are more than 1000 and all of the image references are still to the old server. What is the next step now?

    Were the images uploaded through the Movable Type blog, or just hotlinked from elsewhere?

    Yes they were. All the assets are in Movable type blog. I did a migration with SquareSpace and they were able to migrate all of the images.

    What is the next step here? Is there higher level of support like a phone call or a web meeting.
