Where are the secret contact List

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.

Try doing this

close and open outlook and check if outlook behaves the same way

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....

Sunray,

Yeah i do that all the time... It really sucks when you write up a HUGE response including code examples and stuff and then realize that they were talking about something completely different. =]
