Guys,

In outlook 2003, when i'm wrinting an e-mail and start typing the e-mail address, some addresses from people that I sent e-mails in the past appear to me as a Outlook sugestion even I don't have an contact list or an adress book.

Is it possible to access this e-mail list? is it in the windows registry? if yes, where?

Thanks in advance.

Angelo, It's in C:\Documents and Settings\YourProfileName\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

The file looks like 'yourProfileName.nk2'

You can open it with notepad and all the e-mails are there, but they have spaces between all of the characters.

If you know how to use the replace function easily in notepad, word, etc you can just replace ' ' with '' (space with no space) and then you should be able to copy and paste the addresses....
