Location of Auto-complete of email addresses.

Does anyone know where the email addresses that are used in the Auto-Complete function are kept?  

They aren't part of the contacts because the contacts were deleted by mistake.  I'm hoping to maybe recover more information if I can figure out where the email addresses are retained.

Office 2003 is the version.  And I have no idea how to enable it -- it just like the auto complete function in IE.

Hey SR, I thought I was asking the question here. ;)

Oh -- I'm sorry I wasn't specific enough.  Exactly where are these email addresses kept? (What file are they located?)
