I'm not sure what this feature is called. When create a new email message and as i begin typing in an email address that i've typed in before it displays a list of email addresses that match the characters that i'm typing. The problem is that everytime I reinstall Office on a client machine this listk, that's displayed as you type, is nuked and users have to start from scratch. Is there anyway of preserving this list?

Greetings, ronfast !

You did say what version of Outlook that you are using.  If Outlook 2002 or 2003, copy the .NK2 file as ISoul's link say. If Outlook 2000, the nickname file is has extension .NICK

Also, if you copy from one computer to another using a CD, once on the other computer, make sure the NK2 or .NICK file is not write protected. Right click on the file and uncheck "Read-only" and "System".

Best wishes!
